*****2nd International Conference on*****
********The Engineering of Sport*********
*********13th to 17th July 1998**********
**********Sheffield, England*************

organised by
**The International Sports Engineering Association**
**************The University of Sheffield***********

This conference follows on the success of the 1st International
Conference on the Engineering of Sport held in Sheffield in 1996. The
Conference brings together research groups from around the world
working in the area of Sports Engineering and Technology. The 1998
Conference will formally launch the International Sports Engineering
Association and a new journal Sports Engineering, published by
Blackwell Science.

The Conference will be held at the University of Sheffield which is
one of Britainís leading universities in both research and teaching.
Sheffield has excellent rail and road links to all parts of the United
Kingdom and with the London and Manchester International Airports.

The Conference will be held at the University of Sheffield. Sheffield
is the UK's first National City of Sport and has been recently awarded the
prestigious £160 million headquarters for the UK Institute of Sport.
Sheffield boasts some of the best sports facilities in the country and has
identified sport as its main route to City regeneration.

A number of single en-suite rooms have been reserved at Halifax Hall
of residence at a cost of £30 per night for bed and breakfast. These
