I have just received a message that I thought may be of interest to some of you.
ASAE the society for biological, food and agricultural engineering will hold
a forum discussing the Possibiliites of Biological Engineering outside the
medical field. I have the opportunity to invite 100 participants to this forum
and the registration for these 100 will be waived. If you are interested in
participating please send an email message to
