While the wide spread of digital imaging in medicine, for instance, telemedicine and electronic patient records, is going to generate various problems concerning the color inconsistently reproduced by various display equipment, the multispectral imaging which has far superior accuracy in color reproduction is going to be put into practical use. A common recognition, which was developed at the 1st symposium held on May in last year, that the color problem may affect a wide area of medical science and its practice, and it requires interdisciplinary collaboration of medicine and engineering science to be resolved, has promoted arrangements for the next symposium and establishment of brand-new Digital Biocolor Society at the same time. As well as the 1st symposium, a lot of active attendees are welcome and fruitful discussions are expected at this 2nd symposium.
