The Second Visible Human Project Conference

Open Invitation

Almost two years have passed since the 1st Users Conference of the National Library of Medicine's Visible Human Project. The user community has now burgeoned to over 1,000 sites in 41 countries adding many new licensees. This ever increasing interest in the Visible Human data sets raises discussions of basic anatomical and computer research issues which need attention. The Second Visible Human Project Conference is designed to provide a forum for the discussion of these research issues. Conference participants will have an opportunity to view results obtained and address problems encountered using the Visible Human data sets. The objectives of the conference are to foster scholarly discussions and to encourage new collaborations. On behalf of the National Library of Medicine, we would like to invite you to join us for this event.

Mr. Gregory P. Andorfer, Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of the Maryland Science Center will explain why the exhibit was mounted and what public reaction has been.
