Welcome to the Emerging Technologies Initiative for Molecular, Biological and Multi-Scale Communications

The Emerging Technologies Initiative for Molecular, Biological and Multi-Scale Communications, abbreviated as ETI-MBMC, is an Emerging Technologies Initiative (ETI) (formally Emerging Technical Subcommittee) of the IEEE ComSoc Emerging Technologies Committee (ETC).

The ETI-MBMC aims to foster the emerging area of molecular, biological and multi-scale communications by providing its members with a forum to conduct technical discussions and interactions. ETI-MBMC members come from diverse disciplines, including those within the traditional IEEE ComSoc and those that are typically considered outside the IEEE ComSoc, such as those in molecular and cell biology, biological engineering, and medicine. In order to fulfill the objective, the ETI-MBMC will organize special sessions and tutorials in leading conferences. The ETI-MBMC will also organize special journal issues and hold dedicated topical meetings, symposia, workshops and other events to identify innovative research issues and facilitate collaboration among its members. The ETI-MBMC will work closely with relevant societies within and outside IEEE. The ETI-MBMC will also coordinate with the IEEE Nanoscale and Molecular Communications standardization group to transfer technologies developed in the community to industry.
