                  INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON

   HEAT AND MASS TRANSFER IN BIOLOGICAL AND MEDICAL ENGINEERING

                    8 - 12  June  1998
                     Kusadasi, Turkey


             FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT & CALL FOR PAPERS
  

OBJECTIVE AND SCOPE

The International Centre for Heat and Mass Transfer is pleased to
announce BIO-TRANSPORT'98, an International Symposium on Heat and Mass
Transfer in Biological Tissues.

This symposium is a follow up of the highly successful First Symposium on
Bioheat and Mass Transport held in 1991. The main objective of the
Symposium is to bring together scientists and engineers from around the
world involved in bioheat and mass transfer research and to provide a
relaxed atmosphere for in-depth discussion and exchange of the
state-of-the-art of related theory, experiments, and applications.


SESSIONS

* Heat and mass transport in tissue engineering processes.

* Energy based surgical modalities: microwave, ultrasound,
  radio frequency, laser, cryosurgery.

* Thermally coupled phenomena in living systems: laser tissue optics;
  hyperthermia cancer therapy; burn injury processes; tissue and organ
  cryopreservation

* Mass transport limited function in the design and operation of
  artificial organs.

* Measurement and modeling of the thermal influence of blood perfusion in
  living tissues; thermal methods to measure blood perfusion.

* Microscale heat and mass transport phenomena in biological systems.

* Design for commercial scale tissue processing protocols

* Temperature-triggered drug delivery in living tissues

LOCATION

Kusadasi is a resort town on the Aegean coast of Turkey, about 90 km
south of the metrapolitan city, Izmir. Many major airlines have direct
flights to Izmir airport during summer time. There are several
archeological sites closeby (Ephesus is only 18 km away.)


ORGANIZATION & IMPORTANT DEADLINES

There will be stand-up presentations of contributed papers as well as
poster presentations at the Symposium.  In addition, several keynote
lectures will be delivered.  It is planned that all Keynote lectures
and contributed papers will be published in a dedicated Volume of
Proceedings and may be considered for publication in an archival journal.
A number of Poster sessions will be organized during the Symposium to
provide a format for researchers to discuss their most recent work in a
relaxed atmosphere. The abstracts of all presentations made at the
symposium will be included in the Book of Abstracts available on site.


Stand-up Presentations:

* October 1, 1997: Preliminary Application Form due to ICHMT Secretariat

* November 15, 1997: Four copies of full paper due to K.R. Diller

* March 15, 1998: Paper reviews returned to authors for preparation
                  of final versions

* May 31, 1998: Final camera ready copy of paper due, plus an Extended
                Abstract for publication in the Book of Abstracts for
                the Symposium
