Medicine began with intuition, imagination, observation, and experience in ancient times, gradually evolving into a science over the centuries. In recent years, with the aid of engineering and information technology, biomedical engineering has emerged as a high-tech field generating innovation in such areas as medical imaging, bioinformatics, MEMS and nanotechnology, new biomaterials and sensors, medical robotics, and neurobiology. Scientists and engineers in this field have recently been working towards such advances as developing artificial organs that mimic natural human organs, conducting telemedicine and performing surgeries with robots, creating a laboratory-on-a-chip, and controlling robots through natural animal brain matter.

BioMED 2005 is intended to be an international forum for researchers and practitioners interested in the advances in, and applications of, biomedical engineering to exchange the latest research, results, and ideas in these areas.

All papers submitted to this conference will be peer evaluated by two reviewers. Acceptance will be based primarily on originality and contribution.

BioMED 2005 will be held in conjunction with the IASTED International Conferences on:

Artificial Intelligence and Applications (AIA 2005)
Software Engineering (SE 2005)
Databases and Applications (DBA 2005)
Parallel and Distributed Computing and Networks (PDCN 2005)
Modelling, Identification, and Control (MIC 2005)

As the capital of the Austrian region of Tyrol, Innsbruck is the only major city in the European Alps and is considered one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. As both a recreational and historical center, Innsbruck offers an unrivalled combination of culture, history, and natural beauty. Twice host to the Olympic Winter Games, Innsbruck’s twenty-five Resort Villages blend in perfectly with the alpine environment and offer world-class facilities for skiing, tobogganing, and snowboarding, as well as countless summer recreation activities, amidst breathtaking landscapes. Although Innsbruck is a sophisticated urban center, it has also maintained its historical flavour and boasts an abundance of architectural and art treasures. The city also hosts a multitude of international cultural and musical events throughout the year.

Innsbruck, with its unique blend of historical, intellectual, and recreational pursuits, offers something for every visitor. BioMED 2005 will be held at the world-famous Congress Innsbruck, located in the heart of the city, near the historical quarter. This facility won the prestigious 'Best Conference Center in Europe Award’ in 2000.
