Second conference of the International Shoulder Group
15 -16 August 1999
Calgary, Canada

Following the succesful conference of the International Shoulder Group in
1996 in Delft, our second official meeting will be held as a satellite
meeting of the International Society of Biomechanics. The meeting will be
held at the University of Calgary.

Aim
The conference aims at the stimulation of interaction in the area of upper
extremity research, and especially the shoulder joint. We strive at the
interaction between fundamental and applied research, but also between
those who are active as researchers and those who intend to apply new
research in their clinical or ergonomic practice.
Comparable to the first conference in 1996 we hope to stimulate the
interaction between those active in the fields of ergonomics,
rehabilitation, orthopedics, neurology or sports. These aims are of course
reflected in the possible topics of the conference.

Topics
Musculoskeletal modelling: development and applications
Mechanical and physiological load in working conditions.
Mechanical and physiological load in rehabilitation.
Mechanical and physiological load in sports.
Clinical outcome studies.
Repetitive strain injury.
Stiffness and stability
Imaging techniques
Muscle function and fatigue
(Endo)prosthesis design
Bone remodelling
Motion recording
Anatomy and Morphology

Registration
The registration fee for the conference is CD$300,00 for ISB members and
CD$320,00 for non-members, if registered before June 1, 1999.
Registration forms as well as Accomodation forms are soon available from
http://www.fbw.vu.nl/research/Lijn_A4/shoulder/isg/forms.html
Also, these forms can be requested by e-mail from
Int.Shoulder.Group@WBMT.TUDelft.NL
The forms are also attached to this mail as Word-files.

Presentations
Scientific and application papers are invited for oral presentation. Those
who would like to present should submit an abstract with a maximum length of
500 words to the scientific committee. The address is given below. Deadline
for submission is March 1, 1999. Of course, all abstracts are subject to
review by the scientific program committee. Notification of acceptance will
follow before May 1, 1999.
We intend to publish Congress Proceedings. This implies that all authors are
requested to submit short papers with a maximum length of six pages A-4 (12
point Times, 1.5 spaced). Deadline for these papers is September 1, 1999.
These short papers will go through a (preferably interactive) peer review
process.

The International Shoulder Group
The International Shoulder Group has started at the Congress of the
International Society of Biomechanics at UCLA (Los Angeles) in 1989.
The ISG is a collaboration of mostly biomechanically oriented research
groups, whose main interest is in the shoulder. The goal of the
International Shoulder Group is to enhance shoulder research by exchanging
ideas, methodologies, data and results. This goal is achieved by regularly
meetings (mostly at major Biomechanics Conferences), exchange of preprints
and PhD-theses, exchange of researchers and frequent contacts by electronic
media.
In 1996, the ISG organized their first official conference in Delft, The
Netherlands. During this specialized meeting, approximately 30 researchers
discussed their shoulder research projects and applications.
The Proceedings of this meeting are still available mail to:
Int.Shoulder.Group@WBMT.TUDelft.NL
