Sorry for cross-posting.

To whom it may concern, with request of maximum dissemination:

The European Commission organises a special conference entitled
"Information and Communication Technologies for Biomedical Sciences
2006" in Brussels, Charlemagne building, on the 29-30 June 2006.
http://europa.eu.int/information_society/events/ict_bio_2006/index_en.htm

The conference is open and free, but prior registration is mandatory:
http://europa.eu.int/information_society/events/ict_bio_2006/registration/index_en.htm

The program is available, although in draft form:
http://europa.eu.int/information_society/events/ict_bio_2006/doc/ict_bio_draft-agenda-2006june.pdf

A background document gives useful information on the scope of the
conference and the related context:
http://europa.eu.int/information_society/events/ict_bio_2006/doc/ict_bio-background-2006june.pdf

This even should prepare the scene for a better coordination and a
stronger presence of biomedical technology research in the
forthcoming Seventh Framework Program. It is thus of strategic
importance for our community. Because of this I recommend the
maximum diffusion of this message, and the highest possible
participation.

As you will see in the draft program two sessions will be dedicated
to the computer modelling of pathophysiology. The home of this
sub-domain is the STEP coordination action; everything revolves
around the concept of the Virtual Physiological Human. Some
definitions can be found on this WiKi on Biomed Town:

Tiger! Tiger! Burning bright in the forest of the night,
what immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry?
