OBJECTIVES
----------
The wide ranging interests of people involved in Medical Physics
and Biomedical Engineering, as well as in Cellular or in
Clinical Engineering has led to a large spectrum of subjects
These ranged from the molecule to organ systems, and from basic
research through products and algorithms in development to
clinical applications.

The conference will provide a forum to exchange recent research
work related to science and technology through sessions,
workshops, tutorials, minisymposia and panel discussions.

SCIENTIFIC CONTENT
------------------
The scientific program is planned to satisfy many diverse
interests, and will include both plenary symposia on large
topics and focused workshops, as well as oral and poster
sessions n biomedical engineering and in medical physics.
