IX International Symposium on Computer Simulation in Biomechanics
-----------------------------------------------------------------

The IX International Symposium on Computer Simulation in Biomechanics (ISCSB-IX)
will be hosted by The University of Sydney, Australia, from the 2nd to 4th July
2003. This Symposium, organized by the ISB Technical Group on Computer Simulation
(TGCS), is a satellite event of the XIX Congress of the International Society of
Biomechanics (ISB) which takes place at the University of Otago, Dunedin,
New Zealand, July 6-12, 2003.

Scope
-----
The symposium will be a scientific and technical meeting for investigators and
students whose focus is computer simulation in biomechanics, especially human
movement, musculoskeletal modelling, motor control and robotics related to
biomechanics.

Congress Venue
--------------
The symposium will be held in Sydney, Australia, at the Manly Quarantine Station,
which is located at North Head on Sydney Harbour. It is in a spectacular position
on a headland with views across to the city of Sydney, the nation's commercial
capital and host city for the 2000 Olympic Games. The Quarantine Station is a
place of international, historical, natural, and social significance and will
provide conference participants with a unique conference experience. It can be
reached from Sydney Airport by train and water taxi or train, ferry, and bus.
Connection with Dunedin for the ISB Congress is by direct flight from Sydney
Airport. Visit http://manlyquarantine.com/QSmain.htm for more information about
accommodation and the conference facilities.

Sydney is a stopover for many flights from Europe to Dunedin so there should be
no extra air travel cost for those going on to the ISB Congress. From North
America the cost of the air ticket could be as little as $100 to travel to
Dunedin via Sydney and return.

Registration and Accommodation
------------------------------
Three nights' accommodation and eight meals at the Manly Quarantine Station as
well as conference registration are included in the registration cost of
AUD 630.00 (approx. $350 US).

Symposium Format
----------------
The tradition of the TGCS symposia is to provide a format that stimulates
vigorous interaction among the participants. Thus, each presenter, after the
oral presentation, will have the opportunity to give an interactive
demonstration of related software. There will be only one session at a time to
facilitate continuity of debate among participants. Therefore, about 30-40
papers only will be accepted for presentation. Priority will be given to papers
accompanied by computer demonstration. One page abstracts will be due 10 February
2003.

Watch for notice of the website with further details.
