    6th of October, 1997

    session on NEUROMUSCULAR CONTROL, 24 March 1998
    organised by Johan L. van Leeuwen
    The Society for Experimental Biology
    Annual Meeting
    York, UK 23-27 March 1998

    Dear Colleague,

    I would like to draw your attention to the above session on NEUROMUSCULAR
    CONTROL (24 March 1998), which I am organising for the Annual Meeting of the
    Society for Experimental Biology. Below you will find a preliminary
    programme of invited speakers for the meeting.

    There is one day available for invited and contributed presentations. I
    envisage 20 minutes for contributed talks and 30 to 40 minutes for invited
    presentations. This includes 5 minutes for discussion. Both theoretical and
    experimental contributions can be offered.
    There is also the possibility to submit a poster. Poster size should be
    within dimensions of 1m high x 1m wide. They should be presented, wherever
    possible, in not more than two pieces and the SEB will supply velcro for up
    to two panels. Drawing pins must not be used as they damage the poster
    boards. Any drawing pins used will be removed by the organisers. All posters
    should be accompanied by a photograph of the presenting author.
    A special poster meeting is usually organised at Wednesday (from about 8 PM).

    Official closing date for submission of presentations is 17 October 1997. I
    will however consider all proposals received before 24 October 1997. Posters
    should also be submitted before this date. Late poster entries are usually
    possible, but guaranties can not be given.

    Titles may be submitted to me at the address given below. Please, state
    whether you wish to contribute a poster or a presentation, and provide your
    address and FAX number if available.

    Other sessions which may be of interest to you are:
    Biological Materials in their Mechanical Environment (23 March),
    General Biomechanics (25 March)
    General Neurobiology (25 March)
    Neurobiology of Feeding (26 and 27 March)
    Muscle Development (26 March)
    General Animal Respiration (25 March)

    Registration fees:
    SEB members: 60 pounds per week, 25 pounds per day, 15 pounds per week for
    Non-members: 120 pounds per week, 45 pounds per day, 30 pounds per week for
