The “Vienna Workshop on Functional Electrical Stimulation” was held the first time in 1983 in Vienna, Austria. Since then it is organised  by the Center for Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering (former: Center for Biomedical Engineering and Physics) / Medical University of Vienna and the Austrian Society for Biomedical Engineering every three years in Vienna or locations close to Vienna.

This scientific conference provides a platform for researchers to present and discuss their recent work whilst visitors can expect a representative and actual overview of the state of the art of FES. Traditionally we avoid parallel sessions and provide a forum for oral presentations for the vast majority of the active participants.

During the last conferences all abstracts and selected full-length papers were published in the peer reviewed journal “Artificial Organs“.

 Since our 10th Workshop all conference proceedings are available on DVD in searchable pdf.
