Dear friends, I would like to give you the last invitation to a =
conference which will be held in a beautiful Polish mountain ski resort.

International Scientific Conference
Department of Motor Control
Academy of Physical Education in Katowice
Katowice ? Szczyrk


Motor control of human movement is a very important and undoubtedly =
fascinating area of scientific penetration for many specialists. Despite =
a vast amount of empirical data, many unexplained questions remain.The =
complexity of motor control seems even greater when considering the =
multidisciplinary character of procedures, diagnostic methods and =
reliable analysis of human movement. All of the above facts become =
reasons of diversification in interpretations and evaluation of these =
processess. They continue to generate controversies in basic =

The organisation of this conference, as a form of bilateral exchange of =
ideas and empirical data seems to be fully justified. We would like to =
continue ? in broader form ? the cycle of seminars concerning motor =
control, which was held in our department during the last three years. =
We expect, that our meeting allow to present contemporary knowledge and =
the state of research and discuss the tendencies and perspectives of =
development. We belive that the confrontation of Polish and =
international scientists will allow to determine the state of our =
knowledge in light of world achievements.

We definitly hope, that the conference becomes a place not only for =
scientific discussions, but also for friendly contacts.

We kindly invite you!
