Since 1992, when it debuted as the “Medicine Meets Virtual Reality” conference, MMVR has served as a forum for researchers harnessing IT advances for the benefit of patient diagnosis and care, medical education, and procedural training. Over the years, its curriculum expanded well beyond virtual reality. The conference now presents a wide spectrum of biomedical innovation.

The NextMed portion of the conference ventures outside the IT-focused core, exploring possibilities within biology, materials science, and the micro/nano realms. For NextMed, the MMVR19 Organizing Committee extends a warm invitation to researchers who are creating tools with unique potential to revolutionize the future of medicine.

Submission guidelines are found here.
