The BCATS 2000 Symposium provides a open, interdisciplinary forum for Stanford students and post-docs to disseminate and share their latest work in fields relating to biomedical computation. This symposium was organized around an identification of a need to integrate dispersed and separate efforts in biomedical computation across Stanford University. The BITS faculty organization (Biomedical Information Technology at Stanford) is sponsoring this student-organized event.

This is the first year of this symposium. BCATS will place special emphasis on interdisciplinary research relating to biomedical computation. This topic is very broad and spans many departments at Stanford. Here is a brief list of the topic areas appropriate for presentation at BCATS:

  • Informatics, Data Modeling and Statistics
  • Biomechanical Simulation and Modeling
  • Structural Biology and Genetics
  • Biomedical Image Acquisition and Processing
  • Computer Assisted Interventions and Robotics
  • Network and Computing Technology in Education
