IEEE EMBS International Student Conference

The first IEEE EMBS International Student Conference (ISC2013) was held 8-10 October 2013 at Cairo University, Egypt. The conference was intended to provide a forum for students to meet each other and exchange experiences at the local, regional, and international levels, as well as offer both undergraduate and postgraduate students an opportunity to practice, first hand, the process of scientific research and publication. ISC2013 was a “by students for students” event in that students served as the organizers, speakers, reviewers, and track chairs for all of the conference activities.
