    On the behalf of the International Society of Biomechanics
    in Sports, we have the pleasure in inviting you to attend the
    International Symposium of the Society "ISBS '92", which will
    be held in Milan, Italy.
    The ISBS was organised in 1982 with express purpose of
    "bridging the gap between biomechanics researchers, teachers
    and coaches". The annual symposium, with its published pro-
    ceedings, provides the vehicle through which biomechanics
    applications may be transmitted to practitioners.


    When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express
    it in numbers, you know something about it.
    (Lord Kelvin, 1891)
