The BCATS 2003
Symposium provides an 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. BCATS 2003 is co-sponsored by the Bio-X
Program, as part of the Bio-X Saturday Morning Forum Series.
It is also being supported by NIH's Biomedical Information Science and Technology Initiative (BISTI).

Mark your calendars! BCATS 2003 will be held on Saturday October 25th, 2003. Get ready for another great symposium!
This symposium is in its fourth year running.
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:
