    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.
