SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

FIFTH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON THE 3-D ANALYSIS OF HUMAN
MOVEMENT

July 2-5, 1998, Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA

OFFICIAL EVENT OF THE INTERNATIONAL SOCIETY OF BIOMECHANICS

INTRODUCTION
The International Symposium on the 3-D Analysis of Human
Movement
is a scientific and technical forum for investigators of human
motion,
whether their work is applied to the study of musculoskeletal
disability or disease, sport and elite performance, or basic
studies
of biomechanics. By generating communication and contact between
scientific disciplines and specialties, the Symposium will be
directed
at sharing information and results relating to philosophies for
solving problems of measurement and analysis.

SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM
The conference spans three days, and includes four keynote
presentations, forty fifteen-minute oral scientific
presentations, and
a number of technical presentations from industry.

KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
Outlines of the talks are on the website:
www.utc.edu/Human-Movement
Jim COLLINS, Boston University, USA
Dynamic Modeling
Pascal FUA, EPF Lausanne, SWITZERLAND
Animation
Jean HELD, University of Vermont, USA
Motor function
Jim RICHARDS, University of Delaware, USA
Instrumentation

THEMES
DATA CAPTURE: New instrumentation, hardware, accuracy and
precision of reconstruction techniques, interpolations and
calibration, lens distortion correction.
JOINT MOTION: Location of markers, relation between markers
and
joint motion, defining coordinate systems.
MODELING: 3-D kinematic and kinetic/dynamic joint models,
finite
element techniques, estimation of internal forces, model
validation
and sensitivity analysis.
3-D REPRESENTATION: Computer graphics, animation, simulation,
virtual reality applied to human movement.
3-D APPLICATIONS AND INTERPRETATION: 3-D variables and their
relationship to conventional 2-D parameters.

HOST INSTITUTION
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

SPONSORS
The Symposium is grateful to Motion Analysis Corporation and
VICON
Motion Systems for providing major sponsorship, and to Elsevier
Science Ltd. for their support.

INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
The four-page manuscript is a complete mini-paper with
figures and
references, and will be published in the Proceedings. Each
submission
is to represent original work that has not been reported
elsewhere.
The paper may report significant results of current pilot studies
which may lead to a subsequent journal publications, and as such
we do
not claim any copyright privileges.
All papers are to be up to FOUR 8 1/2 x 11 inch or A4 pages
in
length. The characters should be 10 point Times type or
equivalent
(12 characters to the inch), and single spaced. The title of the
paper in capital letters is centred on the first page about 20 mm
from
the top. Leave one line space, and centre the names of the
author and
co-authors, affiliations, and addresses below the title.
Start the text 70mm from the top of the first page and 25 mm
from
the top of subsequent pages. Indent each paragraph 4 spaces.
The
text is to be in two columns each 80 mm wide, separated by a 15
mm
space, with equal margins on both sides, justified to the maximum
column width. Text should finish 250 mm from the top of the
page.
Headings should be in capitals, left justified and underlined,
and
preceded by a single blank line. Second-level headings should be
in
upper and lower case bold type, indented 4 spaces from the left
margin. Figures may be full width if necessary. An illustration
of
the layout will be found on the website
(www.utc.edu/Human-Movement).
Use SI units - papers based on Imperial units will be rejected.
The
manuscript will be reproduced exactly as submitted, so use a new
black
ribbon or laser printing.

Send the ORIGINAL AND THREE COPIES of the manuscript to:
Dr. Carolyn F. Small, Scientific Committee Chair (address below).
The submission must be postmarked before January 30, 1998.

PUBLICATION
All keynote speeches, and abstracts accepted for
presentation, will be published in the Symposium proceedings.
It is hoped to publish selected papers from the Symposium as a
special issue of "Human Movement Science".
