  • Deadline Approaching

    Dear Subscribers and Biomechanists all over the world,

    The deadline of abstracts submission for the XVth Congress
    of the International Society of Biomechanics is approaching.
    The Scientific committee expects the two-page, camera ready
    abstracts be submitted no later than December 15th, 1994.
    While each one of the abstracts will be blind rewieved it is
    urgent to receive the papers in time. The "Eager Beavers"
    have already done their job. However, there's still time left for
    the rest of the Biomechanists to do the same. We wish you a
    good luck and patience in finalising the scripts!

    Sincerely Yours,

    The Scientific Committee of the ISB XV 1995

    Call for Papers
    General information:
    Authors are invited to submit proposals for podium and poster
    presentations at the Congress. The two-page abstracts should be
    written in English within the scope of the Congress Topics. Abstracts
    should provide sufficient information for readers to fully assess the
    aims, methods, results and implications of the research in question.
    Each submission must be original work that has not been published

    Submission of abstracts:
    Authors are requested to submit one complete, two-page,
    camera-ready abstract which will be printed in the Proceedings Book.
    Please, note that each abstract will be reviewed before acceptance or
    non-acceptance. Therefore, please also send two additional copies
    without authors' names, address and affiliations. Abstracts sent by
    fax are not accepted.

    Abstract Format:
    The abstracts should be typed on two A4 size (210 mm x 297 mm) white
    bond papers and written within 260 mm high by 150 mm wide rectangle.
    The margins are: the left margin 41.5 mm and others 18.5 mm. Text
    should be justified left, single-paced, with a character size set at
    12 points, with a Times typeface. Please do not use typefaces
    simulating scriptwriting. Do not hyphenate words at the end of lines.

    The title (in CAPITAL letters), the name(s) of the author(s) and
    affiliation(s), city and country should be included within the
    rectangle described above. Please omit university degrees, titles,
    street address and zip code. Each item should be separated by a blank

    A two-page abstract should include the following sections: an
    introduction, methods, results, discussion and references. The
    emphasis of the abstract should be on the results and discussion.
    Please write the title of each paragraph in full capital letters
    and justify the left margin. Do not separate titles or paragraphs by
    a blank line from the following text. Leave a 6-pace indention at the
    beginning of each new paragraph. Graphs, tables and references may be
    used throughout the abstract. Only SI units are to be employed.

    Provide line drawings and black and white glossy photographs in the
    correct size for insertion within the text. Figures and captions must
    remain within the defined text limits. Figures should be taped (not
    glued) in the appropriate position. Each drawing should be numbered
    and have a short caption commentary.

    Equations can be provided either as line drawing or as glossy
    photographs in the correct size or they can be typed on standard

    Please try to minimize the amount of references. Use Index Medicus
    for journal title abbreviations and usual format for reference (see
    for instance "instructions to authors" in Journal of Biomechanics).
