Dear Colleagues,

We would like to inform to start New International Symposium on
Measurement, Analysis and Modeling of Human Functions (ISHF2001) which
is jointly organized by IMEKO, SICE and IEEE. The conference objective
is to provide an opportunity for discussing the theoretical,
experimental, and applied aspects of human functions. Sapporo is a
beautiful north city and the most comfortable climate is in this
season. It is highly appreciated if you could circulate this Call for
Papers in your institute.

For details, See Web Site.
