Welcome, Bem-vindos, Bienvenidos 

Welcome to the Global Medical Engineering Physics Exchanges (GMEPE) and Pan American Health Care Exchanges (PAHCE) Conference 2017. This event reinforces the tradition of the PAHCE in our continent. The purpose of this event is to create cooperation, collaboration and knowledge sharing opportunities between professionals and researchers in the areas of health care, biomedical engineering and medical technology industries. The conference will cover various subjects ranging from engineering and medical research to industrial practices. It will examine the latest progress and developments in biomedicine, bioengineering, clinical engineering and the health industry.

We invite professionals to submit their work and sharing their research, its development and results. The selected abstracts and or papers will be published in the three official languages of GMEPE/PAHCE, English, Spanish and Portuguese.

GMEPE/PAHCE 2017 will be held in the state of Chiapas, located at the southeast of México. Tuxtla Gutiérrez, the capital of Chiapas, is a modern city located at 20 km from the International Airport Ángel Albino Corzo. Tuxtla Gutiérrez has beautiful parks, museums and the lovely Marimba Place where any other night you can enjoy the Marimba Orchestras playing alive and people dancing and having fun. Tuxtla Gutiérrez has a Zoo which is placed at a natural reserve; there you can find local fauna of Chiapas, some of the species are in extinction risk. Tuxtla Gutiérrez has the viewpoints of the famous Sumidero Canyon and a great view of the city from the Copoya Christ.   Chiapas holds the well-recognized city San Cristóbal de las Casas which is located at 80 km from the Universidad Politécnica de Chiapas. San Cristóbal de las Casas is a colonial city full with buildings from XVI, XVII and XVIII centuries. It is considered as a magic town in Mexico and by walking through its streets you can notice the harmony of the colonial tradition and the ethnic groups. In the city center there a lot of different restaurants that offer Mexican food, international food and typical food; it has museums, pedestrian streets and a great weather.  

We hope everyone will enjoy the GMEPE/PAHCE 2017 event and the wonderful landscapes, activities, road trips, archeological sites, waterfalls, lakes, and entertainment in Tuxtla Gutiérrez and San Cristóbal de las Casas.

 

Bem-vindos ao Global Medical Engineering Physics Exchanges (GMEPE) and Pan American Health Care Exchanges (PAHCE) Conference 2017. Este será um evento que dará continuidade ao já tradicional encontro no nosso continente. Tem como propósito criar vínculos de cooperação, articulação e aprofundamento mútuo do conhecimento, tanto no âmbito profissional quanto no da pesquisa, entre profissionais da saúde, da tecnologia biomédica e em especial da Engenharia Biomédica. Aqui se darão a conhecer as últimas novidades na biomedicina, bioengenharia, engenharia clínica e da indústria da saúde.

Convidamos aos profissionais para que enviem seus trabalhos para que assim sejam divulgadas suas conquistas nos seus projetos de pesquisa, desenvolvimento e aplicação, procurando desta forma compartilha-los nos idiomas oficiais do GMEPE/PAHCE, inglês, espanhol e português.

GMEPE/PAHCE 2017 será realizada no estado de Chiapas que fica no sudeste do México. Tuxtla Gutiérrez, capital de Chiapas, é uma cidade moderna situada a 20 km do Aeroporto Internacional Ángel Albino Corzo.
