Co-sponsored by TC8.2



Events co-sponsored by the TC-BIOMED included a range of events organised by the International Measurement Confederation (IMEKO) and the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society (EMBS). Such co-sponsorship follows a long-standing agreement between these three organisations holding meetings involving the applications of measurement, modelling, systems and control ideas in medicine and biology. Hence it is normal practice for an event organised by one of the three to be co-sponsored by the other two.

During the triennium there were no Symposia sponsored by IMEKO TC 13 (Measurement in Medicine and Biology), which would have been events attracting IFAC co-sponsorship. There were, however, two IMEKO Congresses attracting IFAC co-sponsorship which included sessions organised by IMEKO TC13:

  • IMEKO XV, Osaka, Japan, June 1999
  • IMEKO XVI, Vienna, Austria, September 2000
