The Women in Medical and Biological Engineering Committee (WiMBE) is pleased to announce the 5-Minute Video Clip Contest (WiMBE ViContext) at IUPESM 2022 in Singapore (12-17 June, 2022) .
The topic chosen is How to Inspire Women to choose Medical & Biology Scientific or Engineering careers.
We want a gender equal society where women feel empowered. Open-mindedness, altruism, courage, compassion, belief in the potential of people, transformation and women empowerment - these are the qualities we want to encourage women to choose to be a scientist or an engineer, however not just any degree but biomedical. Biomedical scientists and engineers directly transform people's lives. Their designs and developments directly impact people and their health and we want those qualities to stand out in the videos.
The contest is open for submissions from members of all societies that are member of IUPESM, including undergraduate and graduate students of all majors, as well as researchers from all over the world. Each team must be composed of: one faculty member (the Supervisor) and no more than three team members.
- Submission deadline: May, 2022
Each submission should include a full video. The Organizing Contest Committee will select the best 5 teams and invite them to participate in the final competition at the IUPESM 2022. The five finalist teams will be selected by the Organizing Contest Committee.
- Final Contest at IUPESM 2022, Conference Dates: 12-17 June 2022
The final ranking will be decided by the Organizing Contest Committee. The awards and final ranking will be announced during the IUPESM congress closure session.
