  • RMBS-abstract extension date

    November 29, 1996


    I hope that by now you have received an announcement from the Program
    Chairperson (Dr. H. Benghuzzi) of the 34th annual RMBS meeting (April
    11-13, 1997) in Dayton, Ohio.

    The RMBS was formed 33 years ago to address the application of
    engineering principles to biology and medicine. The conference draws
    international as well as national investigators. The organization was
    originally comprised of educators, physicians, entrepreneurs,
    scientists and engineers from the Rocky Mountain area. It has grown
    to become a regional symposium which extends as far east as
    Pennsylvania, north to the Dakotas, south to Texas and west to Utah.
    The Board of Directors would like to extend it even farther to include
    Canada, and the eastern United States. The RMBS is also honored to
    have active board members from the United Kingdom and Germany.

    This year, Dr. Benghuzzi and I have brought the conference to Dayton,
    hoping to extend participation in the mid-west. The Board of
    Directors decided to hold the annual meeting outside the Rocky
    Mountain area every other year. Thus, active participation by you,
    your group and particularly your students, is very important. To
    encourage student involvement, the registration fee for students is a
    nominal $40.00 (including the Proceedings), and several well-known
    scientists have been invited to give plenary talks.

    Several people have contacted us to say that because of holiday
    commitments, they found it difficult to submit their abstracts by the
    December 1 deadline. We therefore are extending the deadline for
    submission of abstracts to December 8, 1996. You can send the
    abstracts to me or Dr. Benghuzzi. I hope to see you, your colleagues
    and students at the meetings (Holiday Inn) and the banquet in the
    modern hanger of the Air Force Museum in April.

    Sincerely yours,

    P. K. Bajpai, Ph.D
    Conference Chair

    34th Annual Rocky Mountain Bioengineering Symposium
    April 11-13, 1997
    Dayton, Ohio 45469

    The RMBS has been held annually since 1964. Initially at sites in and
    around Rocky Mountain area, the conference has grown to become a
    regional symposium with meeting sites throughout the entire Midwest.
    Although considered to be a regional conference, contributions and
    attendees come from all parts of the United States, Canada and the
    world. Attendance and professional program paper presentation by
    individuals from areas outside of the Midwest are encouraged and
    welcomed. Accepted papers are published in a nationally distributed
    Conference Proceedings through the Instrument Society of America
    (ISA), which will be available at the meeting. Those interested in
    organizing sessions, or company exhibitions, please contact the
    Conference Chair, Dr. Praphulla K. Bajpai, Department of Biology,
    University of Dayton, Dayton, Ohio 45469-2320, E-Mail
    Bajpai@neelix.Udayton.Edu) or Program Chair, Dr. Hamed. A. Benghuzzi
    at the address listed below.

    Abstract Submission:

    Submit 200 word abstract (double spaced) extended to December 08,
    1996 Acceptance of abstract by December 31, 1996
    Submit full manuscript (up to 6 pages) by January 31, 1997

    The abstract should describe the problem investigated, methods used
    and results obtained.
