Dear Biomch-L readers,

Some hours after my posting of Elena Birjukova's note to me as sent from
the USSR Academy of Sciences in Moscow, I received a note from LISTSERV @
HEARN that she had subscribed to the list; thus, I owe her a rectifica-
tion, and I hope that many more Russian colleagues will follow. The very
fact that computers have been scarce in the USSR has resulted in some
highly qualified, theoretical work in biomechanics modelling which is now
ripe for computerized implementation, with the potential of practical,
clinical application.

In a few hours, I shall be leaving for the INET-'91 conference on inter-
national networking in Copenhagen, during which there is a special session
on networking in and with the (former) East bloc. For example, there are
plans well underway to have a direct email connection between Rumania and
The Netherlands, in the context of CEPES, the UNESCO organisation for higher
education in Bucarest which has been active since 1972 but, because of very
limited communication possibilities, not with very much effect. It is ex-
pected that the upcoming X.25 link will also connect Rumanian universities
with the rest of the world. Let's wait and see what happens in Albania and
Bulgaria ...

With kind regards -- Herman Woltring, Eindhoven/NL.
