Dear subscribers

We would like to circulate the first announcement of an international
seminar titled "Prediction and evaluation of THR performance:can we
plan success?", organised in Leuven (Belgium), June 22nd-23th, 2007.

As closure of an interdisciplinary research project, funded by the
research council of K.U. Leuven, we take the opportunity to present
our research findings. These will be confronted with the current state
of the art on performance of Total Hip Replacement (THR) presented by
an invited faculty of keynote lecturers.

This seminar is aimed at researchers active in the field of THR, as
well as a multi-disciplinary audience of orthopaedic surgeons,
engineers and physical therapists involved in the treatment of
patients after THR and related procedures.
