Dear Colleagues,

Please find below the call for papers for "The Engineering of
Sport" to be held in Sheffield on 2nd to 4th July 1996. The event is
intended to be a forum for Engineers, Physicists and Scientists who find
that their work falls somewhere between the Biomechanics and Engineering

Sheffield is fast becoming one of the major centres of
sport in the UK. In June 1996 Sheffield will be one of the host cities for
the European Soccer Championships and the conference will coincide with the
1996 World Masters Swimming Championships. This will be held at Sheffield
Ponds Forge International Sports Centre between 22nd June and 3rd July
1996; entrance to the Championships is free.

If you are not interested yourself then could you pass this
information on to anyone you think may be, many thanks.

I hope to see some of you in Sheffield next year.


Steve Haake

Honorary Secretary,
The Stress and Vibration Group of the Institute of Physics

P.S. If you have already given me your details you should receive
something through the post soon.
