shows innovation/novelty in research computational mechanics. The
author/s will be invited to submit a full-length version of this
paper to the journal of Computer Methods in Biomechanics and
Biomedical Engineering,

2. WELSH DEVELOPMENT AGENCY/MEDITECH PRIZE
A cash prize of 700Euro will be awarded for the best student

As with previous symposia in this series Madrid will provide an
excellent opportunity to network with other fellow researchers from
around the world, establish new interdisciplinary collaborations
through national and international bodies and research councils and
to consider joint EU programmes being mindful of new member states
joining in 2004. The symposium also has an excellent record in
bringing research groups together as well as being a catalyst for new
ideas, concepts and innovations - so please take this opportunity of
meeting the world experts involved in biomechanics, catch up with the
latest research developments and join us for tapas and sangria in
what we hope will be a technically stimulating and socially enjoyable
event.
