2020 BIOMEDEVICE BOSTON CALL FOR SPEAKERS

Boston Convention Center, Boston, MA
May 6-7, 2020

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: January 10, 2020, 11:59 PM EST

We now invite presenters to submit speaking proposals for the BIOMEDevice Boston Conference, to be held May 6-7, 2020. BIOMEDevice is the only event in the Boston area that covers end-to-end solutions for medical device manufacturing professionals. Some events may cover devices, but this is a one-stop shop for all manufacturing solutions, materials, technologies, and suppliers. Informa has joined forces with Massachusetts Medical Device Industry Council (Mass Medic), which is the leading association in the Boston / New England area. Boston is the largest consumer / producer of med devices on the east coast. Mass Medic will host its annual meeting during the event at the Boston Convention Center.

This year, the conference will run for two days and feature content in the following 2 tracks:

TRACK A: PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT

Discover product development best practices and new methods to speed innovation to market. Attendees will brush up on basics like design verification and validation as well as explore strategies for risk management, scale-up, and team/process management.

Audience: Product/project engineer, project manager, director of engineering (as well as other director-level titles), president, principal, chief executive officer (as well as other c-suite titles), design engineer.

TRACK B: RESEARCH &DEVELOPMENT 

Learn about current and next-generation technologies that can enhance your medical device. Topics covered could include robotics, AI, 3D printing, sensors, new materials, coatings, power solutions, and more.

Audience: Chief Technology Officer (CTO), head of R&D/R&D director, R&D engineer, engineering manager, design engineer, staff engineer, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, biomedical engineer, product/project engineer, materials engineer, scientist.

Our goal is to deliver a unique educational experience for front-end product development engineers, and we encourage proposals from medical device professionals with deep technical and practical expertise, as well as practitioners who have developed strategies for reducing the time, cost, and complexity associated with designing, developing, and bringing medical devices to market.

TOPIC AREAS FOR SUBMISSION

  • New Technologies
  • New Materials
  • Sensors
  • R&D
  • Product Development
  • Process Improvement
  • Medical Device Design
  • Quality

PRESENTATION FORMATS

Didactic Presentation – 45, 60 or 75 Minutes (includes time for Q&A)

PROPOSALS THAT WILL BE GIVEN PREFERENCE IN THE REVIEW PROCESS

  • Featured content never seen before (not available online) that will be created specifically for BIOMED Boston.
  • Reveal new ways of thinking about and applying principles and standards
  • Real-world examples that involve projects with a novel application of technology or illustrate a solution to a technical challenge in an end-product, including a detailed discussion of the trade-offs and choices made (and choices that would have been made differently in hindsight) during the design and development process
  • Include a demonstration to illustrate key technical principles
  • Engage the audience in a highly creative or interactive way
  • Do not include a vendor pitch or promotional material

In general, we look for speakers from medical device manufacturers who are willing to share their knowledge to help engineering and innovation continue and grow. Proposals that aim to decidedly market a specific company or product will not be considered.

SPEAKING PROPOSAL SUBMISSION PROCESS

Please fill out the submission form completely and submit no later than January 10, 2020, by 11:59 PM EST. Late submissions will not be accepted.
