    IX International Symposium on Computer Simulation in Biomechanics

    The IX International Symposium on Computer Simulation in Biomechanics (ISCSB-IX)
    will be hosted by The University of Sydney, Australia, from the 2nd to 4th July
    2003. This Symposium, organized by the ISB Technical Group on Computer Simulation
    (TGCS), is a satellite event of the XIX Congress of the International Society of
    Biomechanics (ISB) which takes place at the University of Otago, Dunedin,
    New Zealand, July 6-12, 2003.

    The symposium will be a scientific and technical meeting for investigators and
    students whose focus is computer simulation in biomechanics, especially human
    movement, musculoskeletal modelling, motor control and robotics related to

    Congress Venue
    The symposium will be held in Sydney, Australia, at the Manly Quarantine Station,
    which is located at North Head on Sydney Harbour. It is in a spectacular position
    on a headland with views across to the city of Sydney, the nation's commercial
    capital and host city for the 2000 Olympic Games. The Quarantine Station is a
    place of international, historical, natural, and social significance and will
    provide conference participants with a unique conference experience. It can be
    reached from Sydney Airport by train and water taxi or train, ferry, and bus.
    Connection with Dunedin for the ISB Congress is by direct flight from Sydney
    Airport. Visit for more information about
    accommodation and the conference facilities.

    Sydney is a stopover for many flights from Europe to Dunedin so there should be
    no extra air travel cost for those going on to the ISB Congress. From North
    America the cost of the air ticket could be as little as $100 to travel to
    Dunedin via Sydney and return.

    Registration and Accommodation
    Three nights' accommodation and eight meals at the Manly Quarantine Station as
    well as conference registration are included in the registration cost of
    AUD 630.00 (approx. $350 US).

    Symposium Format
    The tradition of the TGCS symposia is to provide a format that stimulates
    vigorous interaction among the participants. Thus, each presenter, after the
    oral presentation, will have the opportunity to give an interactive
    demonstration of related software. There will be only one session at a time to
    facilitate continuity of debate among participants. Therefore, about 30-40
    papers only will be accepted for presentation. Priority will be given to papers
    accompanied by computer demonstration. One page abstracts will be due 10 February

    Watch for notice of the website with further details.
