    Dear Colleagues,

    On 27 December 2001 appeared the first announcement of the above
    Symposium on SKELETAL MUSCLE BIOMECHANICS. This high-level Symposium
    will take place within the framework of the 12th International
    Conference on Mechanics in Medicine and Biology, to be held on the
    magnificent Greek island of Lemnos from 9 to 13 September 2002. The
    contents of the presentations will focus on "Muscle Models:
    Fundamentals and Practical Applications".

    Papers are solicited on fundamental and applied topics relating to all
    aspects of modeling the function and structure of skeletal muscle.
    Invited presentations and papers of a sufficiently high standard will be
    published as a full journal paper in a special issue of a reputed
    journal like "International Journal on Mechanics in Medicine and
    Biology". Internationally renowned experts will talk on key issues. In
    addition to Prof. Walter HERZOG, Prof. Scott DELP and Dr. Robert RIENER
    also have confirmed their participation and presentation of invited
    papers, and other international top experts may still do so. The
    Symposium will feature high-level ROUND TABLE DISCUSSIONS with
    participation of the experts and the audience, with the aim of
    identifying those topics that will determine the future directions in
    biomechanical skeletal muscle research.

    If you feel you would like to contribute to this historic event and
    participate in a memorable muscle symposium of an exceptionally high
    standard, you should send an abstract that complies with the format
    outlined below to Prof. T. K. Karalis at , BEFORE
    31 January 2002. Details about the conference will soon be available on
    a website.

    are very helpful.
    Also, please keep us updated with any address changes.

    Abstract: The Abstract must be of 500 words, and the maximum length is
    a 3A4. The Abstract
    must include: (I) Introduction and Objectives, (ii) methods, and (iii)
    Results and Conclusions.

    Keywords: A maximum of 5 keywords should be provided.

    Figures & Graphs: The format for graphs, charts, and all other
    illustrations is PostScript.
    We will try to work with any electronic format that we receive.

    References: If references are added they must be numbered sequentially
