Greetings:

The Midwest Graduate Students' Biomechanics
Symposium for Y2K will be held on the campus of Illinois State University
in Normal, IL on March 31 and April 1, 2000. Thanks to the generous
support of the American Society of Biomechanics, the format of the
symposium will be changed slightly this year to provide attendees with an
even better experience.

The Symposium will open Friday evening, March 31 when Dr. Paul DeVita of
East Carolina University will give the presentation "Friends,
Romans, Countrymen, lend me your biomechanist".  A social will
follow Dr. DeVita's presentation.

On Saturday, April 1, Dr. Tim Derrick of Iowa State University will
present the morning keynote lecture titled "Attenuation of Shock in
the Human Body". Following a lunch break, Dr. DeVita will present
the afternoon keynote lecture titled "Biomechanical gait responses
to ACL injury, surgery, and rehabilitation".

The two keynote lectures will be scheduled around the typical symposium
format of student podium presentations. Students at all levels are
encouraged to present in the friendly, receptive milieu of the Symposium.
In the past, presentations have ranged from students in the formative
stage of developing a research project through to students giving dry
runs of a dissertation defense or an international presentation. Students
interested in presenting at the Symposium must submit (email) an
abstract  by February 24. An abstract consists of a title, author(s)
affiliations, and a brief description of the study. At least 15
minutes will be provided for each student presentation, with the actual
time to be determined by the number of submissions. In accordance with
the informal nature of the symposium, presentations will be accepted on a
first come-first accepted basis.

A variety of hotel-motel accomodations are available at reasonable cost
around Bloomington-Normal, IL. The Best Western University Inn
(univinn@gte.net) has offered a special rate of $55/night during the
symposium (make sure you ask for the MWGSBS rate).

I look forward to another successful symposium. See you in Normal.
