I want to inform you of the biomechanics-related programming at this year's
Annual Meeting of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) in
Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. The conference dates are May 31 to June 3,
2000. Additional program and conference details are available at the ACSM
website (http://www.acsm.org).

The biomechanics-related programming on this year's program is shown below
and includes a President's Lecture entitled, "Elastic Structures in the Leg,
and Their Roles in Running" by R. McNeil Alexander, Ph.D. of the University
of Leeds.

Other program sessions are:

Biomechanics of Musculoskeletal Injuries in Young Athletes: Clinical and
Basic Science Perspectives (Symposium)

Understanding Osteoarthritis: Basic Science to Intervention Techniques

Disuse Muscle Atrophy: Consequences, Mechanisms, and Countermeasures

Electromyography: Interpretation and Application in Exercise Science

Mechanical Loading of Bone: Bridging the Gap between Animal and Human
Studies (Symposium)

Muscle-Nerve Interactions and Fiber Type: From Impulse to Gene (Symposium)

Simulation of Human Motion (Mini-symposium)

Biomechanical, Neuromuscular and Economy Considerations for Amputee
Locomotion (Mini-symposium)

Variability and Stability: A Dynamical Systems Perspective (Mini-Symposium)

The Influence of Segmental Coupling on Patellofemoral Mechanics

H-Reflex: Description and Applications (Mini-Symposium)

Bone Health in the Elderly (Mini-symposium)

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: How Work Related Is It? (Clinical Lecture)

Controlling Skeletal Muscle from Motor Unit to Sarcomere (Colloquium)

Clinical Biomechanics of Throwing (Clinical Colloquium)

The Vastus Medialis Oblique (Anatomical Structure, Anomaly, or Myth?
(Clinical Colloquium)

Interpreting Joint Power in Biomechanics Research (Conversational Forum)

In addition to the sessions listed above, there will be biomechanics-related
thematic poster sessions and several biomechanics-related poster and slide
free communications sessions.

On behalf of the Executive Committee of the Biomechanics Interest Group of
ACSM (Paul DeVita, Kathy Simpson & Steve McCaw), I want to thank all the
members of our community who are either participating or assisting in the
development of programming for the upcoming Annual Meeting of the ACSM.
Additionally, I encourage all members of our community to consider attending
this year's meeting in Indianapolis.
