Technical Session 2

Session Title: Biomedical Engineering Postcard Session (Best of Works in Progress)

Description: In this interactive session, six authors will each pitch their work in progress as a five minute, two-slide “postcard” overview. Attendees will then have the opportunity to enter and exit breakout rooms with any author(s) they wish, to engage in dynamic, small-group discussion. Works in progress were chosen for this session based on reviewers’ evaluations for novelty, technical merit, outcomes, and relevance to BME education.

Moderators: Vignesh Subbian, Assistant Professor, University of Arizona; Rachel Childers, Assistant Professor of Practice, University of Oklahoma


Date:  Tuesday, July 27, 2021

We hope to see you there! (Note: The social will be hosted on a separate platform and is open to all members of the BED division, whether or not you register for the meeting. A link to the social will be sent to the BED listserv 15 minutes prior to the event.)


Date:  Wednesday, July 28, 2021

Time:  8:00 am – 9:30 am PST 

Special Session

Session Title: Publishing in BME Education

Description:As faculty become more reflective of their own teaching and their students’ learning, there are opportunities to document this work and publish it. In this panel session, we will talk about the necessary components of a manuscript, which may include research questions and assessment, as well as different types of papers. We will overview the publishing landscape for biomedical engineering faculty, including ASEE, Biomedical Engineering Education, Advances in Engineering Education, and others. With questions for the audience and discussions on many topics, this session should position you to better consider your own work and what direction you might take to initiate or continue publishing your efforts in biomedical engineering education.

Preprints, Postprints, ePrints:  The Case for Engineering Information Panel | 3:30 PM – 5 PM

The COVID-19 pandemic has demonstrated how critical access to timely scientific information is and how public engagement has demanded reliance on such sources documenting the latest research findings at an unprecedented scale. The relationships between preprint authors and traditional commercial and society publishers have changed as a result of the pandemic. This caused publishing workflows to aggressively compete for acquiring future submissions from preprint authors with new publishing conditions and greater intensity. Preprint servers demonstrate far higher use (biorxiv reports 15x more) than from pre-COVID times, especially for content related to researching the virus and supporting patients and the understanding of their longtime medical, social and technical needs.

Call for Lightning Talks

Do you or your library/organization have an exciting new project, program, partnership, or tool that you would like to share with your fellow ELD members? If so, please consider proposing a Lightning Talk for the 2021 ASEE Virtual Conference in July. The Lightning Talk session will be on Monday, July 26th, 1:15-4:30pm (PDT)

What is a Lightning Talk? A Lightning Talk is a very short presentation on a timely topic of interest to the audience. This year, we are hoping for a variety of talks on any number of subjects, including, but not limited to:
• Digital initiatives
• New partnerships
• Innovative programs and services
• Or anything you think might be of interest to your peers

There are two types of Lightning Talks: Member Lightning Talks and Sponsor Lightning Talks. Member Talks are 2-3 minutes and Sponsor Lightning Talks are 1 minute, 1 slide. The main goals of this session are to learn about what our colleagues and sponsors are doing, and to generate discussions during the session and over the course of the conference. A separate call will go out to ELD’s sponsors over the next day or two to make sure that all ELD sponsors are aware of this opportunity.

All proposals are due by Friday, May 21st.

If you have questions, please contact:
• Member Lightning Talks: Sylvia Jones ([email protected])
• Sponsor Lightning Talks: Mel DeSart ([email protected])

Once your proposal has been accepted, you will be asked to submit a short recorded video presentation of your talk. All of the presentations for each category of lightning talk will be edited together prior to the conference presentation. This will help with possible technical issues of having to manage many presentations within a short time. The submission deadline for recorded talks will be roughly a week prior to the date of the session, so there will plenty of time for you to work on your talk after you find out whether it is accepted.

All presenters are required to be registered for the ASEE conference and to be present at the session to answer questions during the Q&A. Remember that the time you have to present your talk is shorter than most TV commercial breaks!

If you had an abstract accepted for last year’s conference, we invite you to resubmit your abstract for the opportunity to share your work with an audience this spring. Please include a note explaining that it was accepted for the 2020 conference. Submissions from last spring’s conference will be accepted on a first-come-first-served basis.

2021 ASEE Midwest Section Virtual Conference

Welcome to the website for the 2021 ASEE Midwest Section Conference. 
Although we would all like to meet in-person and enjoy Fayetteville in September, we will instead employ a virtual format for this year’s meeting.  The good news is that the registration fee for this virtual meeting is less, and the meeting still offers a great opportunity for faculty and students to congregate virtually, share ideas and publish their work in the refereed conference proceedings.

We will have the usual line-up of technical papers and short workshops for the faculty.  In addition, we will have an IGNITE competition, a technical paper track and career development workshops for undergraduate and graduate students.  We will also pair interested students and faculty for a bit of mentoring.  Finally, we will have an open channel running the duration of the conference to encourage and facilitate discussion.

Let’s have a good meeting!

Cape Annual Conference YPD Convention 2021

Its a little embarrassing that I didnt pay enough attention to my friends, but I think that their acquaintance with each other. Useful and pleasant for both of them, completely expiates my impoliteness. On the other hand, there is nothing more stupid than thanking a woman, let alone two, for great sex.

From under the huge belly peeped out a solid plump member, like a Bavarian sausage, or salami. Piggy sat down on the bio-toilet, collapsed, spread his legs wider. He thought I was going to suck on his penis now. I really wanted to do it.
