Stanford to Host Symposium on Biomedical Computation
On Saturday, October 28, 2000, a student-organized symposium on Biomedical Computation at Stanford (BCATS 2000) will take place at Stanford University. Attendance at the BCATS 2000 Symposium (see http://bcats.stanford.edu/) is open to both the Stanford community and local industry. It will provide an open and interdisciplinary forum for Stanford students and post-docs to disseminate and share their latest research in widely ranging fields involving biomedical computation.
Research topic areas at BCATS 2000 include:
Registration for BCATS 2000 is now officially open. Over 400 registrants are expected from the Stanford community and local industry and space is limited. There is no registration fee for early registrants from Stanford. Early registration ends on October 10, 2000. Further information about registration is located at http://bcats.stanford.edu/.
The major goals of BCATS 2000 are to give students and post-docs a forum for presenting their research and to promote interdisciplinary cross-fertilization of ideas. All Stanford students and post-docs are encouraged to submit abstracts of their research relating to biomedical computation. The presentation formats include scientific talks and a poster session with the option of a live software demonstration. The deadline for abstract submissions is October 6, 2000.
The symposium is sponsored by the BITS faculty group, Stanford Medical Informatics and the National Institutes of Health / National Library of Medicine. At this time there are also opportunities for local industry partners to sponsor this event. Interested parties should contact Jonathan Dugan at firstname.lastname@example.org for details on sponsorship.
