    ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

    FOURTH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM
    ON 3-D ANALYSIS OF HUMAN MOVEMENT
    July 1st - 3rd, 1996, Grenoble, FRANCE

    combined with the

    FIRST INTRNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL
    THREE-DIMENSIONAL ANALYSIS OF HUMAN MOVEMENT
    June 29th - 30th, 1996, Lyon, FRANCE


    FOURTH INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUMON 3-D ANALYSIS OF HUMAN MOVEMENT
    The International Symposium on 3-D Analysis of Human Movement is a scientific and technical forum for investigators of human motion, whether their work is applied to the study of musculo-skeletal disability or disease, sport and elite performance, or basic studies of biomechanics. By generating further communication and contact between investigators in diverse areas, this meeting encourages discussions to cross the boundaries between scientific disciplines and specialities. The Symposium will be directed at sharing information and results relating to philosophies for solving problems of measurement and analysis, rather than only delivering recent research study findings.

    SCIENTIFIC PROGRAM
    The conference is spanned over three days. There will be keynote speakers in addition to oral presentations. Additional papers will be accepted in the form of poster presentation and a Hyde Park Speakers' Corner is also planned.

    1. KEYNOTE SPEAKERS
    Four or five keynote speakers will be invited to address issues from the field of computer vision, virtual reality, computer simulation and applied biomechanics.

    2. THEMES
    Data capture: New instrumentation, and specific hardware, accuracy and precision of various reconstruction techniques, interpolation and calibration, lens distortion correction, etc.
    Joint motion: Location of markers, relation between external reference markers and joint movements, definition of local and global coordinate systems.
    Modelling: 3-D kinematic and kinetic/dynamic joint models, finite element techniques, estimation of internal forces, model validation and sensitivity analysis.
    3-D Representation: Computer-aided-graphic techniques, animations, simulation, and virtual reality applied to human movement.
    3-D Applications and interpretation: 3-D variables used in the analysis of human movement and their relation to conventional 2-D parameters.

    3. SUBMISSION
    The four-page manuscript is intended to be a complete mini-paper with figures and references. Each submission is to represent original work that has notbeen reported elsewhere. The paper may report significant results of current pilot studies that may be leading to a journal publication, and as such we do not claim any copyright priviliges.

    All papers are to be up to FOUR 8 1/2" by 11" or A4 pages in length. Title of paper, in capital letters, must be centred on the first page at about 2cm from the top. The character must be of 10 points Times type or equivalent and single spaced. This is an example. Name of author and co-authors, affiliation and address should be beneath each name, leaving a line in between. The text is to be written at about 7cm from the top of the first page and 2,5cm on the others. It must be within two columns 8cm wide and separated by a 1,5cm space leaving an equal margin on each side. Indent beginning of each papagraph by 4 spaces. Text must be justified to use maximum column width. Text ends 2,5cm from the bottom. Left justify and underline each heading in the colum and use capital letters with one space above each heading. Figures may be full width if necessary. SI units are to be employed. The manuscript will be reproduced exactly as submitted so new black ribbon or laser quality are best.

    Send the original and THREE copies of the manuscipt to Professor Jean-Pierre BLANCHI, Grenoble, France. It must be postmarked before March 15th, 1996. The manuscript will be published in the proceedings of the Symposium.

    4. PUBLICATION
    About 15 abtracts from the proceedings will be selelected by the Scientific Committee. The authors will be asked to submit a full length paper to be reviewed before publication in the journal Human Movement Science.

    5. DEADLINES
    Abstract submission: March 1st, 1996
    Notification to authors: May 1st, 1996
    Early bird registration: May 15th, 1996

    TECHNICAL PROGRAM
    As a complement to the scientific program, manufacturers of data capture systems will be given time during the meeting to inform the participants about their products. THERE WILL BE NO EXIBITS. Those wishing to participate in the Technical Program are asked to communicate with the Permanent Secretariat.

    SOCIAL PROGRAM
    A welcoming reception will be held on the evening of the 30th of June, 1996. Some lunches and a banquet are also planned as well as other social gatherings.

    SYMPOSIUM REGISTRATION
    The fee for the Fourth International Symposium on 3-D Analysis of Human Movement is 1975FF (about) 395.00 US$) prior to May 15th 1996 and 2250FF (about 450.00 US$) afterwards. The registration fee includes meeting material and all scientific and social activities. Checks, money orders or bank drafts drawn in French Francs (no credit cards) are made payable to the International Symposium on 3-D Analysis of Human Movement and Mailed to Professor Jean-Pierre BLANCHI, Grenoble, France.

    LODGING
    You must make your OWN hotel reservation. Prices and suggestions will follow.


    FIRST INTERNATIONAL SUMMER SCHOOL
    3-D ANALYSIS OF HUMAN MOVEMENT

    A two-day International Summer School will focus on the data capture systems, three-dimensional reconstruction techniques and modelization. It is addressed to doctoral and post-doctoral students having a good background in biomechanics.

    1. THEMES AND SPEAKERS
    History and instrumentation; Photogrammetry; Signal processing; Bone and surface marker information; 3-D inverse dynamics; Robotics; Mechanical energy estimation; Applications

    2. REGISTRATION FEES FOR INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL AND LODGING
    Fees for the First International Summer School are 1125FF about 225USD prior to May 15th 1996 and 1500FF or 300.00US$ afterwards. The registration fee includes meeting material and all scientific and social activities. Checks, money orders or bank drafts drawn in FF (no credit cards) are made payable to the International Symposium on 3-D Analysis of Human Movement and Mailed to Professor Joannhs DIMNET, Lyon, France. The participants will be lodge near the Universiti Claude Bernard. Those attending both the International Summer School and the Symposium will benefit from a reduction when making their full payment.

    3. FURTHER INFORMATION
    Contact either Professor Joannhs DIMNET or Dr. Paul ALLARD for further information on the International Summer School.
