VIIth INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON COMPUTER SIMULATION IN BIOMECHANICS

August 5-7, 1999, Calgary, Canada

SECOND ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

The VIIth International Symposium on Computer Simulation in
Biomechanics (ISCSB-VII) will be held at The University of Calgary,
Calgary, Canada, from the 5th to the 7th of August 1999. This Symposium,
organized by the ISB Technical Group on Computer Simulation (TGCS), is
a satellite event of the XVIIth Congress of the International Society
of Biomechanics (ISB) which takes place at the Calgary Convention
Centre, August 8-13, 1999.

Web address: http://isb.ri.ccf.org/tgcs/iscsb7

The symposium will be a scientific and technical meeting for
investigators and students in all areas of computer simulation in
biomechanics, especially: human movement, control, and robotics related
to biomechanics. The meeting will include sessions on the following
topics:

* Numerical methods
* Musculoskeletal modeling
* Applications in sport
* Applications in motor control
* Clinical and ergonomics applications
* Simulation of biomechanical signal processing
* Modeling of biologically inspired robots

Papers on other topics will also be considered.

Keynote Speakers:

"The Digital Biomechanics Laboratory: Simulating Realistic Human Behavior"
Robert Playter, Boston Dynamics, Inc.

"Biomechanics Meets Animation: Explorations in Motion Synthesis
for Real and Imaginary Creatures"
Michiel van de Panne, Department of Computer Science, University of Toronto
