Dear Biomch-L readers,

Tom Cahalan kindly posted the item below to Biomch_L @ hearn; fortunately,
Ulrich Giese at hearn forwarded it to me for further action. May I remind
all of you that the listname is Biomch-L, rather than Biomch_L ?

Presented by Children's Hospital

You are invited to submit papers for presentation at the Seventh
Annual East Coast Clinical Gait Laboratory Conference.

Papers should be original abstracts covering the biomechanics of
human movement with emphasis on gait analysis.

Requirements for Abstracts/Presentations:
* Maximum abstract length is four 8-1/2" x 11" pages including
references, figures, and tables. Presentations are limited
to 10 minutes followed by a 5 minute question and answer
* Titles must include authors and affiliations.
