This is the 2nd Announcement for the European Society of Movement Analysis in Adults and Children Annual Meeting, to be held in London this Autumn (14-19th September 2009). (www.esmac2009london.org/welcome.html ).

The congress proper is held between the 17th and 19th September in a historic venue in the heart of London's West End (www.esmac2009london.org/venue.html ) . It is a great opportunity for biomechanists, physiotherapists, orthopaedic surgeons, neurologists and others to listen to leading research in the area of clinical movement analysis, and to share their own findings.

This year we have the honour of receiving 3 distinguished plenary speakers: Professor At Hof, Professor Daniel Wolpert and Dr Martin Lakie (www.esmac2009london.org/plenaryspeakers.html).

We have excellent pre-congress events as well. If you are new to 3D gait analysis or need a refresher, there is an established and extremely popular 3 day course taught by leading experts in the area (14-16th September). For the more experienced movement analyst, we have a 2 day continuing education programme (15th and 16th September), which is an interesting mix of advanced material, delivered as case reports and lectures. Both programmes employ small group teaching to maximise the learning experience.

We have a wonderful website as well where you can listen and sing along to our amateurish tribute to the "biomechanist" (www.esmac2009london.org/news.html ) . You can also join in our "Cockney Rhyming Slang" competition and read the latest 5 minute interview with a leading exponent of movement analysis!

You will have the opportunity to discuss the latest advances in assessment and intervention technology with our exhibitors in comfortable and spacious surroundings.

Look out for the Call for Abstracts in a few weeks time and don't forget to register (www.esmac2009london.org/registration.html ) - it's going to be fun.
