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. Aiming at intensive interdisciplinary research collaboration of medicine and engineering science, Digital Biocolor Society was established at the second symposium held on April of last year. Moreover, an authoritative textbook written in English was published on last February, which was compiled with major achievements of recent studies in this emerging field. At this third symposium, the panel discussions will be focused on the roles of engineering science that are expected by medicine and the roles of medicine that are expected by engineering science, for the purpose of promoting further interdisciplinary research activities. As well as the second symposium, a lot of active attendees are welcome and fruitful discussions are expected.
Call for Papers
(1) Applications for panel discussions, ordinary papers and 'research plan proposals' will be received. The 'research plan proposal' is a new trial aimed to promote interdisciplinary research plans, in which a specialist in a field proposes collaboration plans to the specialists in other fields. An e-mail or some other electronic media including a presented paper (two page long) written in Japanese, the author's name, the affiliation, the degree, the postal address, the telephone number, the fax number and the e-mail address (information of every panelists for a panel discussion) must be received by the secretariat, by the deadline of Fri, June 1, 2001.

(3) The official languages for presentation is Japanese (no simultaneous translation will be provided), and the time given to each speaker will be 15 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for discussion. Every presentation should be made by OHP sheets, slide films or a LCD projector, and the speakers are expected to operate every equipment and to prepare the computer used with a LCD projector by themselves. Speakers should meet at the reception desk by 30 minutes before the scheduled time for each presentation which will be found in the program.
(4) An electronic version of a scientific journal including the same papers as the proceedings or revised versions of them, summaries of oral discussions, slide films and every other materials will be published and sent to all participants through the internet for participants who could not actually attend the meeting to get almost the same information as attendees. Every author will be expected to submit these materials to the secretariat by the deadline of Fri, June 27, 2001. Papers in Japanese must be accompanied with a summary and legends written in English for participants from other countries than Japan.
(5) Any authors who find difficulties in following instructions mentioned above can feel free to consult the secretariat, because it will provide all kinds of assistance to resolve them as much as possible.
An e-mail including the participant's name, the affiliation, the degree, the postal address, the telephone number, the fax number and the e-mail address must be received by the secretariat, by the deadline of Sun, July 1, 2001. The registration fee of 4,000 Japanese Yen (approximately 33 US$, including seminars, a name plate, the proceedings and an issue of the electronic journal) should be paid at the reception desk of the venue. The registration fee for students is reduced to 2,000 Japanese Yen, and participants resident outside Japan are exempted from paying the registration fee. Participants without the advance registration as instructed above may lose their opportunities to get the proceedings.
