Melbourne '95
-------------

The Australian Society for Biomaterials extends a warm welcome to its 1995
Annual Scientific meeting. As in previous years, our meeting will be in
two parts - a 2 day Scientific Conference with invited and contributed
papers on all areas of biomaterials and a preceding 2 day Symposium on a
special theme. This year the Symposium is co-hosted with the Society for
Biomaterials (US) and endorsed by the Canadian, Chinese, European, Korean
and Japanese societies. This is the second of a series of three Symposia on
implant tracking and data systems. The first was held in Hyannis,
Massachusetts in 1994 and the final Symposium will be held in Washington
DC, USA in 1996.


************************************************** ****************
Symposium: Towards An International Implant Tracking & Data System
29-30 January 1995
******************

This Symposium will build upon the outcomes of the 1994 Hyannis, USA
Conference "Management Requirements for a National Implant Data System".
The Symposium will augment the process begun at Hyannis and
will further develop the issues raised at that meeting, with specific
emphasis on international issues.

*************************
5TH ANNUAL CONFERENCE
January - 1 February 1995
*************************

The Annual Conference will emphasise informality and interaction between
delegates to make the most of the opportunity to exchange and discuss
research findings and new technologies. Therefore, the format will again
emphasise poster discussions and ample time will be allotted to poster
sessions for full discussion of work presented. All accepted papers will
be presented as Posters. From these a selection of speakers will be
invited to make additional oral presentations. If there are several
posters originating from a single group, then one person may be invited to
present the work of the group. This will provide the opportunity for a
more rounded presentation of the different research activities than is
possible in short talks, while giving opportunity for detailed discussion
of specific aspects in the poster sessions. The decision on oral
presentation rests entirely with the Scientific Committee.


Venue and Accommodation
-----------------------

The venue for both Conference and Symposium will be the Radisson President
Hotel which is situated 3km south from the centre of Melbourne, overlooking
Albert Park Lake and offering an international standard of accommodation
and facilities. The Radisson is Melbourne's most modern and flexible
conference centre.
