  • Call for papers: BIOMED 95 (2nd posting attempt)

    (2nd attempt: I tried to post this a couple of days ago, and believe
    we had an e-mail bug so that it did not go out. I applogize if this
    is the second copy you have received. -- Rich)

    Call for Papers:

    BIOMED '95: Third International Conference, Simulations in Biomedicine
    Organized by the Wessex Institute of Technology

    21-23 June 1995
    Palazzo delle Stelline, Milan, Italy

    Conference Chairmen
    Prof. C.A. Brebbia, Wessex Institute of Technology, UK
    Prof. R.T. Hart, Tulane University, USA
    Dr. H. Power, Wessex Institute of Technology, UK

    Time Schedule:
    Submit abstract (300 words) by 22 August 1994
    Submit final paper by 17 February 1995 (to be published in
    a hardback book by Computational Mechanics Publications)
    Final Acceptance 6 March 1995
    Meeting: 21-23 June 1995

    The objective of this Third International Conference in
    Computers in Biomedicine is to bring together different scientists
    who work on the application of computers to simulate biomedical
    phenomena, as well as to develop numerical algorithms to analyze,
    manage, and visualize data.
    Bioengineering applies the methods of engineering, applied
    mathematics and physics to the study of biological phenomena and
    the use of their concepts to describe these phenomena. The
    advantages of this approach are numerous, particularly in the area
    of biomedicine where this treatment has been very successful in
    understanding the mechanic of physiological processes.
    Numerical analysis, a topic common to the fields of
    engineering, applied mathematics and physics, has been helpful to
    the understanding of biomedical phenomena by means of their
    computer simulation. Another major contribution brought to the
    medical community by computational facilities and numerical
    techniques is the ability to visualize numerical data.
    This conference is specifically aimed at scientists
    throughout the world working on the application of computers to
    simulate and analyze biomedical phenomena but may not be fully
    aware of each others development.
