This symposium will be a highly-interdisciplinary and international initiative aiming to better understand how wireless technologies will impact medical practice so that we can plan ahead accordingly.

The third ISMICT will bring together clinicians, engineers and researchers from around the world so that they can share their experience and current projects, particularly during many round table discussions. We are expecting approximately 300 participants.

Universities, healthcare institutions, research groups and industry members will present their latest results, products and ideas through presentations or posters in the exhibition area.
