Dear colleagues,

On behalf of the Organizing committee of IGS 2003, I like to announce the
11th International Graphonomics Society Conference (IGS 2003). The
conference will be held November 2 to November 5, 2003, at the Old Town
Hotel, Scottsdale, Arizona, USA.

This multidisciplinary event will gather scientists from all over the world
to share knowledge on novel developments, fundamental research on
handwriting movements and fine motor control, medical applications,
educational and developmental applications, computer interaction
applications and forensic applications.

We like to invite authors to submit original and unpublished research,
innovations, ideas based on analytical thinking, problems that requires
further investigations, case studies, etc., related to any of the fields of
Graphonomics (for an explanation of this term please see the IGS home page
http://www.cedar.buffalo.edu/igs/ ). We also encourage to submit ideas for
special sessions or tutorials as soon as possible.

As for the previous IGS conferences, a selection of the extended abstracts
will be made and their authors will be invited to submit a full paper for
special issues of top level Journals.

We are looking forward to meeting you at the IGS 2003 conference, in
Scottsdale.

Please see the information and call for extended abstracts below.

Sincerely,
Arend Van Gemmert
IGS Secretary/Treasurer
