  • Networking etc.

    Dear Biomch-L readers,

    Some hours after my posting of Elena Birjukova's note to me as sent from
    the USSR Academy of Sciences in Moscow, I received a note from LISTSERV @
    HEARN that she had subscribed to the list; thus, I owe her a rectifica-
    tion, and I hope that many more Russian colleagues will follow. The very
    fact that computers have been scarce in the USSR has resulted in some
    highly qualified, theoretical work in biomechanics modelling which is now
    ripe for computerized implementation, with the potential of practical,
    clinical application.

    In a few hours, I shall be leaving for the INET-'91 conference on inter-
    national networking in Copenhagen, during which there is a special session
    on networking in and with the (former) East bloc. For example, there are
    plans well underway to have a direct email connection between Rumania and
    The Netherlands, in the context of CEPES, the UNESCO organisation for higher
    education in Bucarest which has been active since 1972 but, because of very
    limited communication possibilities, not with very much effect. It is ex-
    pected that the upcoming X.25 link will also connect Rumanian universities
    with the rest of the world. Let's wait and see what happens in Albania and
    Bulgaria ...

    With kind regards -- Herman Woltring, Eindhoven/NL.
