Dear Subscribers of BIOMCH-L,

on behalf of the organisers I would like to announce the
following conference:


IInd International Conference on Motionsystems
Call for papers and registration, Deadline: January 31th, 2001
Home page: http://www.uni-jena.de/~beb/

Dear scientist,

on behalf of the Innovationcollege "Motion Systems" I would like to
invite you to participate at the "IInd International Conference on
Motionsystems" from July 17th to July 19th 2001 at the Friedrich
Schiller-University of Jena.
The major goal of this conference is to bring together life scientists
and engineers interested on function and performance of motion
In the first session on Tuesday organized together with the Society
of Technical Biology and Bionics (GTBB) biomimetic actuators
and compliant mechanisms following principles uncovered by
observing nature are within the center of interest. Parallel to this
session organized in co-operation with the center of research
program "Autonomous Walking" of the Deutsche
Forschungsgemeinschaft legged vehicles and their performance
are the main focus.
The sessions on Wednesday concentrate on the performance of
muscle-skeletal-systems. One session is organized in co-
operation with the biomechanics group of the German Union of
Sportscience (dvs). Understanding muscle and joints and their
influence on performance of the muscle skeletal system is the
main focus of this session. More basic research is addressed in
the parallel session organized in co-operation with the German
Society of Zoology (DZG). Motion from molecule to animals as
complex systems will be the subject of the presentations. In
parallel an industrial exhibition on measuring techniques in
kinesiology, the biomech 2001, will take place. A special session
may allow the developers to present and explain their latest
developments. On Thursday the sessions of the DZG and the dvs
will be continued shifting to control and exercise physiology. A
special session organized in co-operation with the German
Physiological Society (DPG) will concentrate on muscle activation
during locomotion. Thus the subjects treated on Thursday
smoothly lead over to the meeting organized by the Institute of
Pathophysiology and to the International Conference on Vertebrate
Morphology organized by the Special Zoology and Evolutionary
Biology. If you come from abroad you may also connect your visit
with participation at other conferences such as the ISB-Congress
at Zürich.

We would greatly appreciate your visit. Please register
immediately! We have kept the conference fees low to facilitate the
participation of students. Especially, I would very much like to
welcome many members of the societies listed above.
