The organizing committee of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine Society (EMBS) Dallas Chapter invite you to participate in the First Annual Texas Medical Device Symposium on November 2nd, 2012, at the campus of The University of Texas at Dallas (UTD). The IEEE is one of the largest and most active engineering professional organizations, and the EMBS subdivision covers all aspects of biomedical engineering and related topics with professional journals and meetings.

The Dallas IEEE EMBS chapter will co-host this event with UTD and in collaboration with The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center (UTSW) and The Unviersity of Texas at Arlington (UTA). The expected attendees are workers from our growing regional medical device industries, including Texas Instruments, St. Jude Medical neuromodulation, Alcon/Novartis, Abbott, and a number of medium to small size companies; investors, people from goverment and other sectors who are intersted in new biomedical devices, materials, and processes. We will also have faculty and students from local Universities and research centers, including Texas Scottish Rite Children’s Hospital, Children’s Hospital at Dallas, UTD, UTSW, SMU, UTA, UNT, TCU, Baylor Research Institute, Baylor College of Dentistry and others.

The symposium program will include distinguished speakers from the medical device industry, academia, clinical practice, and the public sector. The keynote
