    Today's topics:

    (1) BIOMCH-L membership
    (2) First IOC World Congress on Sports Sciences
    (3) Oxford Orthopaedic Engineering Centre Annual Report


    (1) BIOMCH-L membership

    Current membership for BIOMCH-L is 65, including a number of local News Distrib-
    ution lists (University of Waterloo, Canada; Catholic University of Leuven, Bel-
    gium; University of Maryland, USA; Carnegy Mellon University, USA). Details of
    country membership can be obtained by sending the command


    to LISTSERV@HEARN. As discussed last year, individual subscribers' names are
    currently confidential, but I'm quite prepared to consider removing this con-
    straint if a substantial majority should so desire. Readers who wish to pre-
    serve or undo their anonymity can do so by sending the command


    to LISTSERV@HEARN. Note that the originating address should be identical to
    the one under which you have been subscribed; in the case of VAX/VMS clusters
    on EARN/BITNET/NETNORTH, these names are currently different if you subscribed
    via an interactive command or via an emailed command. For example, my site
    name is HEITUE51 (interactive address), buth my cluster name is HEITUE5 (email

    The number of mailings on BIOMCH-L has been disappointingly low during the past
    few weeks; may I suggest that you all think of interesting items that warrant
    wider dissemination? Calls for Papers, Calls for Help, Book Announcements and
    Reviews, or Lab Descriptions would all be highly useful for the readership, and
    the informal nature of BIOMCH-L should enhance such activities. Remember that
    submission of an item to the list is straightforward: just send your posting to
    BIOMCH-L@HEARN, and everything will be taken care of (NB: LISTSERV@HEARN is
    only intended for administrative matters such as subscription, log file retrie-
    val, etc.).


    (2) First IOC World Congress on Sports Sciences

    The first I.O.C. World Congress on Sport Sciences will convene from 28 October
    through 3 November 1989 in the Broadmoor Hotel, Colorado Springs, CO/USA; it
    is promoted by the International Olympic Committee's Medical Commission, orga-
    nized by the US Olympic Committee, and sponsored by 3M Health Care. Abstracts
    of research papers are now being sollicited for presentation at the meeting.

    Papers must be of direct relevance to one of the following specialty areas:
    Biological Sciences (Physiology and Biochemistry of Exercise), Medical Sciences
    (Orthopaedics, General Medicine, Injury Prevention and Treatment), Physical
    Sciences (Biomechanics, Technology, Engineering), or Psychosocial Sciences
    (Psychology, Motor Behaviour).

    Abstracts should not exceed 200 words in length and must state the objectives
    of the study, materials and methods, results and conclusions, and significance
    of the findings. Abstracts must contain the name of the institution, name of
    the author who would present the paper at the congress, and the names of all
    co-authors. The name, address, and daytime telephone number of the person to
    whom correspondence relative to the paper should be addressed must also be

    Abstracts accepted for presentation at the Congress will become the property of
