Special round tables and workshops are scheduled to take place at the end of each scientific session. These will include a round table on interprogramme collaboration in biomedical engineering in the European Union, with special reference to the Community's Biomedicine and Health, Measurements and Testing, and Telematics in Health Care programmes.

In addition, a satellite workshop on "Computer analysis of blood pressure and heart rate signals" and a COMETT course on "Micro-engineering in biology and medicine" will take place on 4-5 May 1995.

The following pre-conference advanced courses for medical doctors and engineers will take place on 29-30 April:

- Special courses for medical doctors:

. Robotics in medicine;
. New biomaterials for skeletal implants;
. Neural networks for medical applications;
. Trends in biomagnetism;
. Chaos in biological signals: methods of analysis and signal processing;
. Eye movement analysis as a neurological diagnostic tool;

- Special course for engineers:

. Gastrointestinal endoscopy;
. Non-invasive optical sensor system in ophthalmology;
. Diagnostic and modern interventional treatment of coronary lesions;
