Medicine and healthcare rely more and more on biotechnology and
bioinformatics. This is why it has been decided that a new track and topic

    BIOINFORMATICS - Genome, Proteome and Health in the Cyberspace Era

will be organized at

            9th World Congress on Medical Informatics

to be held in Seoul, Korea, August 18-22, 1998.

We would like to invite you to submit a paper to be presented at the 
Bioinformatics track.

MedInfo, the largest medical informatics conference to be organized, is
taking place every three years. MedInfo'98, to be organized in Seoul,
Korea, accepts six categories of contributions: papers, panels,
experiences, workshops, tutorials, and demonstrations. Two types of papers
will be considered for the Bioinformatics track, that will all be printed
in the congress proceedings, published on the congress CD-ROM, and indexed
in the MEDLINE database:

  Scientific Papers - these papers represent original contributions to the
  science of medical/health informatics with a clear statement of
  objectives, methods and results.

  Review Papers - these papers highlight the current state-of-the-art of
  health informatics, and present a thorough synthesis of key issues.

If you intend to contribute an article, please confirm this by e-mail to
ron.appel at or by fax to Ron Appel +41 22 372 61 98. Specify
whether you need a copy of the instructions to authors that we will be
glad to send you. Instructions to authors may also be obtained directly
from the "Intent to participate" page of the MedInfo'98 WWW server:
