Dear Colleague,

We are glad to inform you that

				The Second International Conference on 	

				FRACTALS IN BIOLOGY AND MEDICINE

will be held in 
				ASCONA- LOCARNO , Switzerland 
				Centro Seminariale Monte Veritˆ
				from March 6 to March 9, 1996		


The Second Conference is going to explore the new concept of fractal
geometry and its potential for understanding structural designs, metabolic
functions and pathological changes in biological tissues.

Topics included:
 	Epistemiological and Mathematical Foundations of Fractals 
 	 Identification and Methods for Measurements of Biological 	  Fractals -
Non-Linear Dynamics and Chaos in Biology  	 	 	 Models and Cases of
Fractals in: 				Morphogenesis, Self-Similar Forms, Irregular Structures 
			Growth and Cell Death - Vessel Branching 		Cell Surface and Membranes;
Gases, Molecular Exchanges,  			Ion Channels and Signal Transduction -
	Epithelial-Stromal Tissue Interface - Complex Biopolymers 			in Connective
Tissue - Tissue Remodeling -			Differentiation of Neuronal and Motoneuronal
Cells -					 Synaptic Contacts - 			Premalignant and Malignant Cell Nuclei
- Texture Related 			Nuclei - Benign and Malignant Tissues.  	 				Fractals
in Pathological Tissues. 		Fractal Analysis of Radiological,Ultrasonic and
Sonographic 				Images - Pattern Recognition.
