As in former versions of the congress, all participants (oral sessions and posters) are entitled to submit a 4-page paper. This paper will be the basis for selection of some of the oral presentations. Normally these papers will be included in the book but a reviewing process will be used to screen for papers which have to be revised or even excluded. The book will be published by NPI with ISBN registration. This book will be handed out to all registered participants at the meeting.

All submissions must be written in English, starting with a succinct statement of the problem, the results achieved, their significance and a comparison with previous work. The following sections should be present: title, authors with affiliation and addresses, introduction, methods, results, discussion, references. The format for these papers is the same as for the papers for the "Posture and Gait" journal except that a summary abstract is not needed and that there is a strict limitation of number of words.

Maastricht, Congress Site
Situated close to the borders of Belgium and Germany, the Roman city of Maastricht has a cosmopolitan atmosphere. It is the capital of the province 'Limburg' in the southernmost part of the Netherlands. To visit Maastricht is like traveling through time. Walk on Roman cobble stones from 150 BC and visit the halls where the Maastricht Treaty was signed in 1992. Enjoy Maastricht's skyline of church's spires and towers and its tree lined squares. But also be sure not to miss 'In den Ouden Vogelstruys', the Netherlands' oldest pub. We guarantee that Maastricht and its people will delight and charm you.
