From: ESBiomech Council

Dear ESBiomech member:
The Council of the European Society of Biomechanics is proud to
announce that starting today our Society has a new and largely
improved web site:

The Council has put substantial time and resources in the development
of this web site, because we felt that this was the right way to
provide to our Society the infrastructure required to grow and to
prosper and to provide our members with improved services and
extended functionality. It is our hope that this web site will
quickly become the true Agora of our Society, the virtual square
where all members can find what they need for their professional and
research activities.

All membership services (applications, fee payments, etc.) will now
be managed electronically; this should drastically improve the
quality of the membership services, traditionally low as in any
Society without full-time service staff.

You will be able to monitor your personal subscriptions to journals,
to find all facts of our Society, to know immediately about new
awards and grants the Society promote, and to know all about our
summer workshops, biennial conferences, and related publications.
Students will find a special space entirely dedicated to them, with
useful resources for the development of their careers; other national
or regional Societies of Biomechanics in Europe will find all
information on our affiliation and liaison programs. Last, but not
least, the web site will host an array of discussion forums, launched
and moderated by members that want to discuss specific topics with
their peers.

While we shall continue to distribute our periodic newsletter, the
web site will become the main source of news related to biomechanics,
and you will be able to find very quickly all the information you

Being a resource for our members in good standing we have restricted
the access to most resources to the ESBiomech members. If you are
already a member, you will receive soon an email message with your
login and initial password. If you do not receive it, please contact
the webmaster: http://www.esbiomech.org/SendMailForm/sendMailWebmaster

If you want to join our Society simply go to this page and fill in
your application:

Of course, as any new thing, also this web site will probably have
some rough corners. If you spot a problem, from a spelling error in
a page to a programming error compromising a service, please let us
know by writing to the web site troubleshooting Forum:

Tiger! Tiger! Burning bright in the forest of the night,
what immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry?
