On behalf of the organizing committee and the Latvian Medical Engineering and Physics Society, we are happy to welcome you to the 19th Nordic-Baltic Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics, NBC 2023 held in Liepaja from June 12th to 14th 2023.
The conference attracts scientists from all over the world for a fruitful exchange of thoughts and sharing of results. The conference will feature some outstanding keynote lectures and workshops on special topics. The Nordic-Baltic Conference on Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics is held for the second time in Latvia. The first time was in 2008 which was the 14th NBC, and we look forward to hosting this important Nordic conference again next summer in Liepaja.
Liepaja is the 3rd largest city in Latvia and the 10th largest in the Baltic States. About 70,000 people call Liepaja their home, their place of study and work. The city is sandwiched between the Baltic Sea and Lake Liepaja which themselves are connected by the Trade Canal.
Liepaja has historically been an industrial city as well as a closed military territory, however, over the years the city’s residential, recreational, and business environment has seen ongoing improvements put in place. It has become a modern city with a global outlook, but at the same time retaining the comforts typical of a small town.
