We are very happy to announce the following keynote speakers for the 6th International Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Systems (ICBES'19):
École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland
UMass Lowell, USA
Dr. Dominique P. Pioletti
Dominique Pioletti received his Master in Physics from the EPFL in 1992 at Lausanne. He pursued his education in the same Institution and obtained his PhD in biomechanics in 1997. He developed original constitutive laws taking into account viscoelasticity in large deformation. Then he spent two years at UCSD as a post-doc fellow and was interested in particular to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms leading to peri-implant osteolysis. He developed at that time the pioneer idea to use orthopedic implant as drug delivery system and has since proposed different solutions relevant for clinical applications. From 2006 to 2013, he was an Assistant Professor at EPFL and since August 2013, was appointed Associate Professor of Biomechanics at EPFL. He is the director of the Laboratory of Biomechanical Orthopedics. His research topics include biomechanics of the musculoskeletal system, mechanobiology in bone and cartilage, drug delivery system for bone and cartilage, functional tissue engineering. His close collaboration with different hospital departments has resulted in research output oriented toward applications.
Topic of Keynote: The Role of Dissipation in Developing Hydrogels for Functional Tissue EngineeringKeynote Abstract
Dr. Sam Mil'shtein
Prof. S. Mil’shtein publication list carries over 270 publications, patents, and conference presentations. His current research work covers high speed quantum electronics, design of solar sell systems, imaging systems for biometrics and medical engineering applications. In recent years Prof. S. Mil’shtein served as member of organizing committees of number International Conferences covering various aspects of semiconductor electronics, nanotechnhology and low-dimensional systems, homeland security.
On May 22 2015 Prof. S. Mil’shtein as elected to be a Member (Academician) of the National Academy of Science of Republic of Kazakhstan. Dr. Samson Mil’shtein is a Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering of University of Massachusetts at Lowell since 1987. From 1990 he is the director of the Advanced Electronic Technology Center at UMass. During 1998-1999 he served as Assistant Dean of Engineering for Research, UMass, Lowell, MA. He received his M. Sc. Degree in Semiconductors from State University of Odessa (Ukraine), and Ph. D. from University of Jerusalem (Israel). At age 23 he was the youngest professor of Semiconductor Electronics Department, Polytechnic College of Kherson (Ukraine). Dr. Mil’shtein worked for semiconductor companies in Russia and the USA, was teaching at Russian and Israeli Colleges, served as research fellow in Russian Academy of Sciences and at AT&T Bell Laboratories.Working as a member of the research staff with the Institute of Solid State Physics, Russian Academy of Science, he received in 1971 the first prize of ISSP of the Academy of Science of USSR for the discovery of dislocation based p-n junctions in Si and Ge. This discovery led to the design of the “Smallest Transistor” with the extremely short channel.
