  • 1998 American College of Sports Medicine Meeting

    The tentative schedule for the 1998 Annual Meeting of the American College
    of Sports Medicine (ACSM) has been released. Sessions of principal
    interest to the readers of this list are indicated at the conclusion of
    this message.

    I would like to highlight the Biomechanics Interest Group Meeting on
    Thursday, June 4, 1998 to individuals planning on attending the
    conference. At this meeting, we will be planning the biomechanics content
    for the 1999 ACSM Meeting (Seattle, WA June 2-5, 1999). If you have ideas
    regarding symposia, colloquia, clinical lectures, thematic posters or
    other types of sessions of interest to biomechanists and the ACSM
    membership, please don't be shy! Put your ideas into action and help us
    plan the content for the 1999 meeting. If there is a session you would
    like to create or see developed, bring your ideas (including topics and
    potential speakers) to the Interest Group Meeting. If you have questions
    or would like to discuss your ideas in advance, feel free to contact
    either Jesus Dapena ( or myself

    The 1998 ACSM conference will be held June 3-6, 1998 in Orlando, Florida.

    The deadline for preregistration is 3/15/98.

    Further information regarding the conference and registration can be
    obtained from the ACSM website:
