The Japan Society of Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing was founded in 1962 and is a non-governmental organization devoted to the development of cooperation for the advancement of photogrammetry and remote sensing, as well as their applications.
The Polish Society of Applied Electromagnetics (PTZE) was established in 1990 as a forum for the exchange of thoughts, ideas, and experiences among people interested in and dealing with various applications of electromagnetism. The number of members of the Society is ca. 300 as of the end of 2019. The aims of the Society are listed below:
- Promotion of collaboration among scientists representing various subjects of engineering and science that use electromagnetic fields;
- Exchange of scientific information;
- Support for young researchers by organizing scholarships, scientific visits, and professional courses;
- Organizing scientific conferences, both domestic and international;
- Collaborating with domestic and international societies.
The Polish Society of Applied Electromagnetics realizes the aims shown above which can be seen, among others, in the number of conferences organized since 1991 continuously. What is more, the Society has also organized some Joint Seminars with Japanese researchers, and Joint Seminars with colleagues from Slovenia and Macedonia. Since 1990, the Society has organized a couple of scientific projects solving academic and engineering problems for the industry and society, which have also helped young colleagues to attain their scientific degrees.
The Polish Society of Applied Electromagnetism covers a wide area of electromagnetic applications, from very conventional electrical engineering through agricultural engineering to medicine. Recently, the interest of the members has been focused on the links between medicine and electromagnetism.
The Spanish Society of Biomedical Engineering (SEIB) is a non-profit organization representing the biomedical engineering community in Spain. Its mission is to improve the health, wealth, and wellbeing of Spanish citizens through the application of biomedical engineering (BME).
SEIB belongs to the International Federation of Medical and Biological Engineering as well as to the European Alliance for Medical and Biological Engineering & Science as the Spanish society representing biomedical engineering in these international institutions. SEIB is the authorized voice and advocate for the value of BME in Spanish society and aims at fostering BME education; providing leadership in research and technology innovation; and promoting the interdisciplinary collaboration of BME engineers with healthcare professionals, patients, and citizens for the benefit of society.
SEIB members are members of academic institutions, research centers, and industry and healthcare institutions working in all areas of BME (bioelectronics, physiological system modeling, telemedicine, biomechanics, biomedical signal processing, medical imaging, bioinformatics, biomaterials, etc.).
One of the main SEIB activities is the organization of its annual congress (CASEIB) as the Spanish scientific and industrial forum to disseminate among research groups, students, companies, and institutions the latest works and advances of Spanish research. In 2022, CASEIB will celebrate its 40th anniversary.
