  • Re-post: Summer ASME Conf. Announcement

    The following announcement was not readable to some people on the list. My
    Here it is again.

    D. Kunz


    1997 Summer ASME Bioengineering Conference
    Sun River, Oregon
    June 11-15, 1997

    Session: Experimental Techniques and Robotic Applications in Bioengineering

    This is an invitation for those interested in presenting research and
    participating in discussion involving new or advanced experimental
    techniques, and the innovative application of both existing and new
    approaches to experimental biomechanics.

    An additional goal of the session is the discussion of problems and
    solutions in testing of biological specimens (e.g. alignment, variability,
    incomplete specimens, etc.), in a format that would be interesting and
    beneficial to everyone involved.
    Appropriate topics for this session would include:

    - robotic applications
    - 6 degree-of-freedom systems for in vitro testing
    - 6 DOF load cell applications
    - use of artificial models for laboratory testing
    - correlation of in vitro test results to in vivo behavior
    - studies involving application of loads to living systems

    Please send the authors and tentative title, to the session organizers as
    soon as possible:

    David N. Kunz, Ph.D. (e-mail:

    Final paper (2 page abstract on 8.5 by 11 paper) is due by December 16, 1996.
    Author's instructions are available from, and papers should be submitted to:

    K. B. Chandran, D.Sc.
    Dept. of Biomedical Engineering
    1202 EB, College of Engineering
    University of Iowa
    Iowa city, IA 52242

    Please contact either of us with any questions regarding the session.
