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 centered 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.

During the Meeting, the NOVEL award will be presented for the best
scientific paper submitted in the field of pressure distribution analysis.
A cash prize of $10,000 will accompany the award. Applications for the
award are currently being reviewed by an international jury of specialist=
s
in the fields of biomechanics and medicine.
