Dear Biomech-List members,

The Robotic Biomechanics Sport & Health research group of the P-Prime
Institute UPR 3346 (CNRS-Université de Poitiers-ENSMA) is pleased to
welcome you to a symposium entitled SMS 2011 — Sport Measure Simulation.

SMS 2011 will be in Poitiers, France, 31st May and 1st June 2011.
SMS 2011 is organised under the aegis of the Société de Biomécanique.


Papers in all topics in the field of Sport Biomechanics will be
considered for oral presentation. We especially solicit papers in the
following areas of interest :

* Modelisation and Simulation,
* Instrumentation,
* Equipment,
* Performance sports testing,
* Musculoskeletal mechanics,
* Injury / Rehabilitation,
* Fluid mechanics.
