*** CALL FOR PAPERS ***


1997 Summer ASME Bioengineering Conference

Sun River, Oregon

June 11-15, 1997


Session: Experimental Techniques and Robotic Applications in
Bioengineering


This is an invitation for those interested in presenting research and
participating in

discussion involving new or advanced experimental techniques, and the
innovative

application of both existing and new approaches to experimental
biomechanics.


An additional goal of this session is the discussion of problems and
solutions in

testing of biological specimens (eg. alignment, variability, incomplete
specimens, etc)

in a format that would be interesting and beneficial to everyone
involved.

Appropriate topics for this session would include:


- robotic applications

- 6 degree-of-freedom systems for in-vitro testing

- 6 DOF load cell applications

- use of artificial models for laboratory testing

- correlation of in vitro test results to in-vivo behavior

- studies involving application of loads to living systems


Please send the authors and tentative title of your paper to the
session organizer as

soon as possible:


David N. Kunz, Ph.D. (e-mail: kunz@trace.wisc.edu)


Final paper (two page abstract on 8.5 x 11" paper) is due by December
16, 1996.

Author's instructions are available from, and papers should be
submitted to:
