The 17th Conference of the Canadian and Medical and Biological Engineering
Society will be held at the Banff Park Lodge in Banff Alberta from May 7 to
11, 1991. Banff is located in the Canadian Rocky Mountains about 130 km west
of Calgary.

The theme of the Conference is related to the transfer of new technologies to
the health-care system and a Keynote Program has been organized to illustrate
some truly exciting examples of this process. Featured participants in the
Keynote Program will be:

* Allan Weinstein, PhD, of IatroMed Inc. USA, who will speak on the
Electrostimulation of Bone Healing.

* Ian Pykett, PhD, of Advanced NMR Systems USA, who will speak on
Ultrafast Magnetic Resonance Imaging.

* John Tulip, PhD, of the Alberta Laser Institute, who will speak on
Medical and Dental Lasers.

* Prof Victor Regnier, an Architect and Gerontologist from the
University of Southern California who will speak on 'Housing
the Aged: Design Directives and Policy Considerations' - emerging
health-care concerns where technology is bound to play an ever
more prominent role.

Special Technical Sessions are being planned which will focus on the problems
of the elderly with a particular view to new technological developments and
the transfer of these to the needy.

A Special Session on Medical Information Systems is also in the formative
stages.

Workshops and other round table discussions on aspects of Clinical Engineer-
ing, particularly PA/PM Management, will be on the Program as well.

The Program Committee is extremely pleased to announce that a very inten-
sive one-day symposium will also be held in conjunction with CMBEC-17:

The SYMPOSIUM ON STRAIN MEASUREMENT IN BIOMECHANICS with presentations
by speakers from the USA, the UK and Ireland. Discussed will be such
topics as strain gauging, photo- elasticity, holography, thermography,
photoelastic coatings and soft-tissue measurements.

Low-cost Student Accommodation at the Banff International Hostel has been
arranged for CMBEC-17 for only $15 per night.

The Social Program will include a barbecue, skiing, sightseeing, hiking,
horseback riding and, weather permitting, even golfing and canoeing.
