In the PREFACE to the Book containing the papers presented at the Conference
on Motor Control during the Fall of 1999 we wrote: "We look forward to
further developments in the field of Motor Control which is a challenging
and exciting life theme. We would like to believe that the organization of
the Forum on Motor Control is a step towards future communication among
clinicians and scientists in their efforts to understand the "mysterious
functions" of our Brain, aiming at a final outcome of improving the daily
motor activity of patients with posture and gait incapabilities."

Looking forward to welcome you in Bulgaria!

On behalf of the Organising Committee,

Nikolai GANTCHEV
