On the behalf of the International Society of Biomechanics
in Sports, we have the pleasure in inviting you to attend the
International Symposium of the Society "ISBS '92", which will
be held in Milan, Italy.
The ISBS was organised in 1982 with express purpose of
"bridging the gap between biomechanics researchers, teachers
and coaches". The annual symposium, with its published pro-
ceedings, provides the vehicle through which biomechanics
applications may be transmitted to practitioners.


When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express
it in numbers, you know something about it.
(Lord Kelvin, 1891)
