Dear all,

I would like to invite you to the First International Symposium on
Applied Sciences in Biomedical and Communication Technologies (ISABEL
2008), which will be held on October 25-28, 2008, Aalborg, Denmark (see
CFP in txt below or pdf in attachment).

I would highly appreciate your help in publicizing the event by
forwarding the call to your contacts.

Looking forward to seeing you in Aalborg.

Best regards,

First International Symposium on
Applied Sciences in Biomedical and Communication Technologies


October 25-28, 2008
Aalborg Kongres og Kultur Center
Aalborg, Denmark

Technically sponsored by:
IEEE Denmark

Financially sponsored by:
Dept. of Electronic Systems, AAU

:: Scope

The inter-disciplinary approach is becoming more and more a trend in
scientific and engineering communities. This trend is confirmed by the
strong connections between two of the most prosperous research areas,
biomedical and communication engineering, also with respect to pure
sciences (e.g., mathematics and physics), which applied to the former
show to be extremely powerful tools. This symposium provides an ideal
platform for worldwide engineers and scientists. Indeed, internationally
recognized researches and practitioners will share cutting-edge
information, address hot issues, explore emerging technologies, exchange
and build upon ideas. Particular stress will be put on the current and
potential connections between pure sciences, biomedical and
communication engineering, highlighting the beneficial synergies among
these research areas.
