TUTORIAL COURSES in Biomedical Engineering, June 6 - 9, 1996, Tampere
University of Technology, Tampere, Finland

Tutorial courses (TC) in the fields of bioelectromagnetism, biosensors, and
biomedical signal and image processing will be arranged at the Tampere
University of Technology, Tampere, Finland in connection to the 10th
Nordic-Baltic Conference on Biomedical Engineering and 1st International
Conference on Bioelectromagnetism. The TC are primarily aimed at graduate
students and young researchers of Biomedical Engineering but may well suit
also related fields like Electrical Engineering, Computer Science, Physics,
Clinical Medicine, Biology and Chemical Technology etc. 

The TC comprise of four separate 2-day-course that are Bioelectromagnetism,
Biomedical Signal Processing I, Biosensors and Biomedical Signal Processing
II. These will be lectured at Tampere University of Technology in lecture
rooms 1 and 2.

NOTE: DEADLINE FOR REDUCED REGISTRATION FEE: April 8, 1996
