Dear Biomch-l Colleagues:

Following is a Call For Papers for the 24th International Workshop on Human
Subjects for Biomechanical Research. This Workshop is held every year just
prior to the Stapp Car Crash Conference. It provides a forum to discuss progress
and problems in current research using human volunteers or cadavers.

The Workshop will be held on Sunday, November 3rd in Albuquerque, New
Mexico. The 40th Stapp Conference will take place from November 4th-6th at
the same facility. In addition, AGARD will be hosting a Special Meeting on
Impact Head Injury from November 7th-9th in Mescalero, New Mexico (near
Alamogordo). Why not spend a week in New Mexico and catch all three
meetings?

Dear Colleague:

The Twenty-Fourth International Workshop on Human Subjects for
Biomechanical Research will commence at 9:00 am on Sunday November 3,
1996. It will be in Albuquerque, New Mexico at the Albuquerque Marriott. The
basic purpose of the Workshop is to provide a forum for the exchange of ideas
and the presentation of current trauma research investigations using human
volunteers or surrogates. Open participation is strongly encouraged to facilitate
the problem-solving efforts.

This is a Call For Papers that are suitable for presentation at this Workshop.
Topics should be related to recent innovations or difficulties in human volunteer
or surrogate testing. Papers on computational simulations or dummy testing
must be linked with appropriate testing of volunteers or surrogates. Any topic
related to trauma biomechanics is welcome. Suggested areas of interest include
airbag induced trauma, whiplash injuries, and the biomechanical response of
children.

Should you wish to make a presentation, please submit a Title and Abstract on or
before August 30, 1996 to:

Dr. Michael Kleinberger
