Announcement

The Rl0'94 World Congress on Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering will be
held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, from 21-26 August 1994; and is planned to cover
virtually all areas of Medical Physics and Biomedical Engineering. It is the
first World Congress to take place in a developing country and will certainly
bring a major contribution to the growth of these fields in the whole world,
and specially in Latin America. We invite you to come and share your scientific
work with colleagues from the four corners of the world. We are sure you will
enjoy becoming acquainted with the latest developments in the two specialties
and
basking in the warm hospitality of Rio.

years or less of age, and "Latin American Student Award," for under-graduate
and graduate Latin American students.

Pre-Congress Courses: Two courses in the week before the Congress:
1."Radiation Protection and Quality Assurance in Medical Physics"
2."Medical Image Processing".

Deadline for Abstracts: 20 DECEMBER 1993

Exhibition: A large technical exhibition will take place during the World
Congress, focusing medical equipment and new developments in research on
Biomedical Engineering and Medical Physics. Exhibits are invited from
manufacturers, product and service suppliers, research groups and other
organizations.
