Modelling and Control in Biomedical Systems (including Biological Systems) was held in Reims, France, 20-22 August 2006. This Symposium was organised by the University of Reims Champagne Ardenne and the Société de l'Electricité, de l'Electronique et des TIC (SEE).
The Symposium attracted practitioners in engineering, information technology, mathematics, medicine and biology, and other related disciplines, with authors from 24 countries. Besides the abstracts of the four plenary lectures, this volume contains the 92 papers that were presented by their authors at the Symposium.
The papers included two invited keynote presentations given by internationally prominent and well-recognised research leaders: Claudio Cobelli, whose talk is titled "Dynamic modelling in diabetes: from whole body to genes"; and Irving J. Bigio, whose talk is titled "Elastic scattering spectroscopy for non-invasive detection of cancer". Two prestigious industrial speakers were also invited to give keynote presentations: Terry O'Brien from LIDCO, whose talk is titled "LIDCO: From the laboratory to protocolized goal directed therapy"; and Lorenzo Quinzio of Philips, whose talk is titled "Clinical decision support in monitoring and information systems".

Dr. David Feng received his M.E. in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science (EECS) from Shanghai Jiao Tong University in 1982, M.Sc. in Biocybernetics and Ph.D. in Computer Science from the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) in 1985 and 1988, respectively. After briefly working as an Assistant Professor at the University of California, Riverside, he joined the University of Sydney at the end of 1988 as a Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Reader, Professor, Head of Department of Computer Science, and the Head of School of Information Technologies. He is currently an Associate Dean (International IT) of Faculty of Science at the University of Sydney; Honorary Research Consultant, Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, the largest hospital in Australia; Chair-Professor of Information Technology, Hong Kong Polytechnic University; Advisory Professor and Chief Scientist of Med-X, Shanghai Jiao Tong University; Guest Professor, Northwestern Polytechnic University, Northwestern University and Tsinghua University. His research area is Biomedical and Multimedia Information Technology (BMIT). He is the Founder of Director of the BMIT Research Group. He has published over 400 scholarly research papers, pioneered several new research directions, made a number of landmark contributions in his field with significant scientific impact and social benefit, and received the Crump Prize for Excellence in Medical Engineering. More importantly, however, is that many of his research results have been translated into solutions for real-life problems and have made tremendous improvements to the quality of life for those involved. He is a Fellow of the Australian Academy of Technological Sciences and Engineering, ACS, HKIE, IEE, and IEEE. Dr. Feng is a Special Area Editor of IEEE Transactions on Information Technology in Biomedicine, Editorial Board Advisor or member for The Visual Computer (International Journal of Computer Graphics), Biomedical Signal Processing and Control, Control Engineering Practice, Computer Methods and Programs in Biomedicine, The International Journal of Image and Graphics (IJIG), and is the current Chairman of IFAC-TC-BIOMED.
