In keeping with BIOMCH-L tradition (when general interest is expressed),
I have a summary of information provided to me by the thoughtful
subscribers of the listserv. Thank you!

The following is my interpretation of what I have received for my needs.
I hope I did not misinterpret anyone's comments.

For basic/advanced courses for collection, analysis and interpretation
being given this year so far (in no particular order):
1) 16th Annual Meeting of ESMAC (European Society of Movement Analysis
for Adults and Children) September 24-29, 2007 in Athens, Greece:

2) Centre for Clinical Research Excellence in Clinical Gait Analysis and
Gait Rehabilitation

3) 17TH Annual Conference May 17 - 19, 2007 Faculty Club in Leuven -
Belgium
CLINICAL GAIT ANALYSIS: A FOCUS ON INTERPRETATION; Also sponsored by:
The University Hospital Pellenberg (Belgium), Gillette Children's
Specialty Healthcare (St. Paul, US) and the Connecticut Children's
Medical Center (US). To my knowledge neither the Basic nor advanced
Courses are full.

Several people sent me the web link for the 16th Annual course on
Clinical Gait Analysis. Co-sponsors: Gillette Children's Specialty
Healthcare Connecticut Children's Medical Center, and University
Hospital Pellenberg (Belgium) The date: May 18 - May 20, 2006 in
Minneapolis, MN.

The link was provided because Gillette, Connecticut Medical Center, and
University Hospital sponsor a course every year. This year it is in
Belgium.

And, of course, not to forget two additional groups who examine gait and
posture in many aspects and provide tutorials:
1) The Gait and Clinical Movement Analysis Society at:
https://www.amrms.com/ssl/gcmas/
The Conference this year is in Springfield, Massachusetts; April
11-14, 2007.
2) The International Society for Posture and Gait Research whose
conference is July 14-18, 2007 in Burlington, Vermont. Site:
