Dear Sir:

Please help us to post the following message to all the members on Biomch-L.
Thank you in advance.

An Invitation to International Conference on Biomechanics combined with the
Annual Scientific Meeting of Taiwanese Society of Biomechanics, November
10-11, 2001, Taipei, TAIWAN

The Organizing Committee invites you to participate in the ˇ§International
Conference on Biomechanics combined with the Annual Scientific Meeting of
Taiwanese Society of Biomechanicsˇ¨ to be held at National Yang Ming
University, Taipei, TAIWAN, from 10 to 11 November, 2001.

The ˇ§International Conference on Biomechanics combined with the Annual
Scientific Meeting of Taiwanese Society of Biomechanicsˇ¨ is fully supported
by the International Society of Biomechanics and Taiwanese Society of
Biomechanics. This conference will be a significant event for the Asia
region. It aims to bring together multidisciplinary researchers to discuss
the latest breakthrough in biomechanics. The world-renowned experts have
been invited to give special lectures in this conference.

We believe that Taipei, a modern metropolis with a world famous Palace
museum and other scenic sites, is an ideal place for us to share our
experiences and identify our challenges in the new century. I hope to invite
you to participate in this exciting multidisciplinary conference. Looking
Forward to seeing you in Taipei on November.

Sincerely Yours,
