The ICT for BIO-Medical Sciences 2006 conference received 400 participants

The Conference focused on exciting research results and challenges related to medical imaging and computer simulations of organs and diseases for safer and more effective medicines, and to see ways of managing growing medical knowledge. Finally, to see the latest developments in computing that is inspired by nature.

Audiovisual and 3-D live demonstrations such as the use of grid-enabled technology that can accelerate the discovery of novel active compounds for the treatment of diseases, as well as real-time registration between medical imaging and motion capture and a cardiovascular demonstrator stand where very busy showing their different achievements.

The conference discussed on the main challenges of these domains that could be addressed by the 7th Framework Programme (2007-2013), which is the European Union's main instrument for funding research and development at the European level. Major themes for this EU Programme are Health (coordinated by Research DG) and Information and Communication Technologies (coordinated by Information Society and Media DG).

Sessions webcasted are available on the conference website. A photo gallery including the Demos, the sessions and the breaks is also available.
