We are pleased to invite you to the forthcoming Medical
Technology and Engineering Research Network meeting,
({ HYPERLINK "http://www.meditech.uwcm.ac.uk"
}www.meditech.uwcm.ac.uk). The objective of this
meeting is to present advances being made and future
challenges in the area of computational biomechanics and
biological structures. The invited speakers who will
provide a state of the art review of this area represent
industry, research centres, software companies and the
university sector. Researchers, industry and software
companies interested in biomedical engineering are also
invited to present posters and space will be provided for
products and demonstration at no extra charge.

The cost of the meeting will be 65 and will include three-
coffee breaks, lunch and symposium pack. Numbers will
be restricted and places will be allocated on a first come
