Dear all,

It is with great pleasure that I announce the Call for Abstracts for the
Tenth Annual Meeting of the Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society to
be held in Portland, Oregon from the 6th to 9th April 2005. Abstracts
relating to all areas of gait and clinical movement analysis are invited.
Within the program there will be a specific focus on the "Efficacy of
Clinical Gait Analysis" and "Clinical Application of Advanced Modelling".
All abstracts will be peer-reviewed but those relating to these subject
areas will be particularly welcome.

The home site for the Conference is:
http://www.amrinc.net/gcma/2005/index.cfm. Details of format for submission
of abstracts for both podium and poster presentations are available and the
on-line submission process is now open.

As in previous years there will be two two hour tutorial sessions. These
will be determined on the basis of abstracts submitted through the
web-site. GCMAS will cover the registration fee (including banquet) for up
to two presenters of each tutorial selected by the Program and Education
Committees for presentation.

The timetable for abstract submission, review and notification of
acceptance is:
