MEETING ANOUNCEMENT
******************************

5th EMED Scientific Meeting
Penn State University
University park, PA 16802, USA

AUGUST 17TH - AUGUST 20TH, 1996

******************************************

The 5th EMED Scientific Meeting will be held at the University Park Campus of
Penn State University for August 17-20th, 1996. The timing of the meeting has
been synchronized with the Candadian Society of Biomechanics Meeting in
Vancouver BC such that participants will be able to attend both meetings.

The EMED meeting is open to every scientist who works in the field of pressure
distribution measurement and analysis. As in previous EMED meetings, which took
place in Liverpool (UK), Vienna (Austria), Flagstaff (USA) and Ulm (Germany),
the goal of the meeting is to share experiences and results in the area of
pressure distribution measurement. The format will consist of scientific paper
presentations, workshops, and discussion sessions, all centred around the
application of pressure distribution measurements in the biomechanical, medical,
and technical fields. The main focus of the 5th EMED meeting will be the
analysis of pressure data using computational methods.

The provisional program for the 5th EMED Scientific Meeting is given below.

Accommodation will be available at the Nittany Lion Inn (Tel: 800-233-7505 or
814-231-7505) on the Pennsylvania State University campus where the scientific
meetings will be held. However, you will be responsible for making your own
hotel reservations. When making your reservations please reference the EMED
Scientific Meeting to secure the room rate of $92/double or $82/single.

Budget accommodations will also be available nearby, e.g. Nittany Budget Motel
(Tel: 814 237 7638); Friendship Inn (Tel: 814 238 6783); Sleep Inn (Tel: 814 238
