The 2005 SIAMOC Annual Congress aims to highlight the mission of SIAMOC
that is to foster the study and the clinical application of movement
analysis methods, in order to improve the functional evaluation of motor
disorders and to enhance the efficacy of the treatments through a
quantitative analysis of data and a more focussed treatment planning.
The topics of the Congress include motor development in children and the
study of motor control in adults and in subjects with different
pathologies. The submission of studies conducted on specific patient
groups (e.g. cerebral palsy, adult stroke, spina bifida, spinal cord and
orthopaedic injuries, Parkinson) are encouraged together with studies on
recent methodological developments related to movement analysis and other
movement analysis applications (e.g. posturography, upper limb/spine
evaluation, ergonomics, sports).

The congress will include main lectures, keynote presentations, oral and
poster communications, breakfast instructional courses and an interactive
round table. A satellite event will be held on October 26th.
