Many of you are awaiting the decision on the abstract(s) submitted
as free communication to the Second World Congress of
Biomechanics. We are a little behind schedule. The number of
abstracts exceeded the expectations. We could not manage to have
all decisions made prior to February 1. Shortly after February
15, we mail the letters of notification to you.

Just to give you an idea: we received 1126 abstracts, 30 will be
included as an oral presentation in the symposia where we have
some free slots. 10 abstracts were selected for the Clinical
Biomechanics Award. Of the remaining 1086 abstracts we can accept
371 as oral presentation presented in 53 sessions. We will accept
about 540 poster presentations in three poster sessions. Hence we
have to reject 175 abstracts.

The symposium organizers have done a good job. They manage to
fill 89 sessions with about 400 contributions and in many
occasions time for (panel) discussions.

As you may notice the Second World Congress of Biomechanics will
be a large meeting. All areas of biomechanics are covered, so
each of you will find your share of scientific information.
Sufficient time is reserved for the poster presentations and
discussions with fellow participants.

I urge you to be patient. The notification of acceptance of you
abstract will arrive on time for you to register early and to take
advantage of the discount on the registration fee.

I hope to see you all in Amsterdam.

Leendert Blankevoort
Secretary General
