Dear BIOMCH-L subscribers and Bioemechanists all over the world,

************************************************** *********
Final Announcement & Registration and Call for Papers
XVth Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics
Hosted by the University of Jyvaskyla, Finland, July 2-6, 1995
************************************************** *********

The Organizing Committee of the XVth Congress of the International
Society of Biomechanics warmly welcomes the Biomechanists all over
the world to participate the next Biannual Scientific Meeting of the ISB
at the University of Jyvaskyla, Finland. The ISB XV opens on July the
2nd and closes on July the 6th.

As Prof. Dr. Paavo V. Komi, the Chair of the XVth ISB Congress says:
"Please come to Jyvaskyla with your best scientific spirit and knowledge
so that we can all enjoy the great progress of biomechanics research.
Be also prepared to come here fresh and well charged: the long days with
the midnight sun demand special professional and social energy."

*Call for Papers*

Participants are invited to submit proposals for podium and poster
presentations at the Congress. The two-page abstracts should be
written in English within the scope of the Congress Topics.

The Deadline for Abstract Submission is December 15, 1994.

The Final Announcement & Registration and Call for Papers brochures
have been posted to the members of ISB already in July 1994. Most of the
participants of the 2nd World Congress of Biomechanics in Amsterdam
this summer have got their copy also. Those who have not received the
leaflet yet, please, send an email message to: multasuo@jyu.fi.
