Report of the XIth International Biomechanics Seminar

The XIth International Biomechanics Seminar (IBS98) was held
in Wroclaw, Poland in September of this year. It was organised
jointly by the Academy of Physical Education, Wroclaw, Poland,
the Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden
and the Polish Society of Biomechanics under the chairmanship
of Prof. Stefan Kornecki.
The theme of the two-day seminar was the problem of muscular
synergism with special emphasis on stabilising functions
of skeletal muscles. It comprised four sessions devoted to various
aspects of the muscle force sharing problem, each starting
with a lecture of a distinguished invited speaker and containing
four to five free communications.
The lecturers were Necip Berme (Ohio State University),
Roger Enoka (University of Colorado), Herbert Hatze (University
of Vienna) and Walter Herzog (University of Calgary).
A book of proceedings containing full texts of the four invited
lectures and free communications by authors representing
Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Israel, Latvia,
Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and United Kingdom was published just
before the seminar.
