                         Scope of the BIBE Symposium

The Bio-Informatic and Biomedical Engineering are very important and very 
active research areas that offer promising solutions to complex medical
and biological problems as well as practical applications to other 
professions in industry and government. These areas have rapidly increasing
impact on our society (important health issues) and commercial applications
(drugs development, prosthetics, etc). In response to this demand, a number
of related periodicals have been published worldwide. Not one of these, 
however, deals exclusively with the biomedical engineering and 
bio-computational evolution and biological analysis of living systems and 
the interaction between artificial and living systems. Both Bio-Informatic
and Biomedical Engineering advance fundamental concepts, create knowledge 
from molecular to the organ and living organism levels, and develop 
innovative biologics, materials, processes, implants, devices, 
software-hardware tools and methods for prevention, detection, monitoring,
signaling, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases; for patients 
rehabilitation; for improving health; for development of new bio-computing
systems, genome research for developing of new drugs and the 
interpretation of complex biological processes. 

The BIBE Symposium provides a unique opportunity to researchers, scientists
and practitioners to shape knowledge and scientific achievements by 
bridging two very important research fields, Bio-Informatic and Biomedical 
Engineering, into an interactive and attractive forum. 

A list of topics (but not limited) are presented bellow: 

  FUSING ARTIFICIAL DEVICES IN BIOLOGICAL AND LIVING SYSTEMS 
  NATURAL LANGUAGES UNDERSTANDING IN BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS 
  LEARNING IN ARTIFICIAL AND BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS 
  PERCEPTION IN ARTIFICIAL AND BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS 
  ENGINEERING MODELS IN BIOMEDICINE 
  BIOLOGICAL MODELS AND SYSTEMS 
  ROBOTICS IN BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING 
  COMPUTING IN BIOLOGICAL SYSTEMS 
  GENETIC AND EVOLUTIONARY COMPUTING 
  DNA AND GENOME DATABASES 
  BIO-INFORMATIC AND BIOMEDICINE TECHNOLOGIES 
  BIOMEDICAL IMAGING AND SIGNALING 
  BODY'S AND CELLS BIOSIGNATURES 
  TISSUE ENGINEERING
