     Symposium on Nonlinear Systems 
        in Medicine and Biology
           May 11-12, 1994

In conjunction with the 25th Anniversary 
Celebration at IUPUI a two day Symposium 
on Nonlinear Systems is planned for May 
11-12, 1994.  In order to capitalize on 
the strengths of the IUPUI campus which 
includes the Indiana University Medical 
Center the symposium will focus  on 
applications of nonlinear systems 
techniques to biology and medicine. 
Speakers from around the country have 
been invited to explain how they have 
applied nonlinear science to topics drawn 
from the general areas of biology and 
medicine.  All participants are invited 
to contribute poster presentations in 
order to foster further overlap and 
interaction in this highly 
interdisciplinary field. May in 
Indianapolis is Indy 500 month!  Trips 
will be arranged to the racetrack on the 
afternoon of May 12 to view practice runs 
of Indy cars and the garage areas.


Confirmed speakers include: 
  David Clapham, Mayo Clinic "Spiral 
Calcium Waves in Xenopus Oocytes"
  William Ditto, Georgia Institute of 
Technology "Chaos and Chaos Control of 
Heart and Brain" 
  Stuart Kauffman, Santa Fe Institute 
"The Origins of Order: Self-Organization 
and Selection in Evolution" 
  Scott Kelso, Florida Atlantic 
University "Spatiotemporal Dynamics of 
the Human Brain" 
  Simon Levin, Princeton "Global Change, 
Biological Diversity and the Problem of 
Scale"
  Richard Voss, IBM "The Practical 
Fractal"
