Dear Colleagues,

I have been entrusted with the organization of a high-level Mini
Symposium on SKELETAL MUSCLE BIOMECHANICS within the framework of the
12th International Conference on Mechanics in Medicine and Biology, to
be held on the magnificent Greek island of Lemnos from 9 to 13 September
2002. The contents of the presentations will focus on "Muscle Models:
Fundamentals and Practical Applications".

Papers are solicited on fundamental and applied topics relating to all
aspects of modeling the function and structure of skeletal muscle.
Invited presentations and papers of a sufficiently high standard will be
published as a full journal paper in a special issue of a reputed
journal like "International Journal on Mechanics in Medicine and
Biology". Internationally renowned experts will talk on key issues.
PROFESSOR WALTER HERZOG has already agreed to contribute an invited

If you are interested in participating in a memorable muscle symposium
of an exceptionally high standard and with the intention of contributing
to progress in skeletal muscle modeling, you should send an abstract
that complies with the format outlined below to Prof. T. K. Karalis at
, BEFORE 31 January 2002. Details about the
conference will soon be available on a website.

Herbert Hatze
Symposium Organizer

ABSTRACT FORMAT REQUIREMENTS as laid down by Prof. Karalis:


The items listed below are the minimum requirements for the Abstracts.

You may use the following as a checklist before submitting your
