The objective of this Third International Conference in
Computers in Biomedicine is to bring together different scientists
who work on the application of computers to simulate biomedical
phenomena, as well as to develop numerical algorithms to analyze,
manage, and visualize data.
Bioengineering applies the methods of engineering, applied
mathematics and physics to the study of biological phenomena and
the use of their concepts to describe these phenomena. The
advantages of this approach are numerous, particularly in the area
of biomedicine where this treatment has been very successful in
understanding the mechanic of physiological processes.
Numerical analysis, a topic common to the fields of
engineering, applied mathematics and physics, has been helpful to
the understanding of biomedical phenomena by means of their
computer simulation. Another major contribution brought to the
medical community by computational facilities and numerical
techniques is the ability to visualize numerical data.
This conference is specifically aimed at scientists
throughout the world working on the application of computers to
simulate and analyze biomedical phenomena but may not be fully
aware of each others development.
