Annual Meeting of the Society for Experimental Biology,
Swansea, UK, 11-15th April 1994
Session on 'Biomechanics of Growth and Form',
14th of April 1994



Dear Colleague,

I would like to draw your attention to the above session on
biomechanical aspects of 'Growth and Form', which I am
organising for the Biomechanics Group of the Society
for Experimental Biology. In recent years, exciting advances
have been made in this area, and I am keen to receive
contributions from a variety of back grounds and levels of
structural organisation. Below you will find a preliminary
programme for the meeting.

If you would like to submit a paper or poster, please let me
know by the end of this month and supply the following
details:
-Title of paper or poster
-Author's and co-authors' initials, names and affiliation.
-Full name and address of the person to whom all
correspondence should be addressed.

An abstract is required before the 14th of February 1994.

Other meetings which may be of interest to you are:
General Biomechanics, 13th of April, organised by Dr Iain
Young, Dept of Pure and Applied Biology, University of
Leeds, LS2 9JT, England, tel. 0532-431751, Fax. 0532-
