The 1st NATO technology discussion board used to be held in Biarritz in September 1990. This Taormina convention is the second one in a sequence that we want to be an extended one and that i think that it has equalled the good fortune of its predecessor. In constructing those conferences the NATO technology Committee desired to assemble major specialists to check fields of robust current curiosity.

The reason for building a physiologic compartmental model is to realize as complete a description as possible of a metabolic system under investigation. The model is built to develop an analogy of the system under investigation and to obtain values for critical parameters of the model so that unobserved portions of the dynamic and kinetic behavior of the system under investigation can be predicted. Specific information obtained about the system under investigation includes the number of pools and their sizes, how they are connected, and how their masses change over time.
