Location: The 2003 Congress and R&D Exposition will be held at two hotels:
The Marriott Wardman Park Hotel and the Omni Shoreham Hotel. The hotels are
located across the street from each other. All technical sessions,
registration, publication sales and the exposition will be held at the
Marriott. All other meetings or events will be split between the Marriott
and the Omni.

SUBMISSION INFORMATION: For this year, all abstracts are to be submitted
on-line at the new ASME conference website: and follow the
links for "Bioengineering"

March 1, 2003: Deadline for submitting a short 150-200 word abstract
consisting of a title, author list- affiliation, and the abstract. This
short abstract will be used by the session organizers only to setup their
sessions, and will NOT be published.

March 31, 2003: Notification of Abstract Acceptance and preliminary
identification of technical sessions

June 16, 2003: Notification of tentative acceptance to authors.

July 18, 2003: Submission of final official ASME two page abstract.
