    Report of the XIth International Biomechanics Seminar

    The XIth International Biomechanics Seminar (IBS98) was held
    in Wroclaw, Poland in September of this year. It was organised
    jointly by the Academy of Physical Education, Wroclaw, Poland,
    the Chalmers University of Technology, Göteborg, Sweden
    and the Polish Society of Biomechanics under the chairmanship
    of Prof. Stefan Kornecki.
    The theme of the two-day seminar was the problem of muscular
    synergism with special emphasis on stabilising functions
    of skeletal muscles. It comprised four sessions devoted to various
    aspects of the muscle force sharing problem, each starting
    with a lecture of a distinguished invited speaker and containing
    four to five free communications.
    The lecturers were Necip Berme (Ohio State University),
    Roger Enoka (University of Colorado), Herbert Hatze (University
    of Vienna) and Walter Herzog (University of Calgary).
    A book of proceedings containing full texts of the four invited
    lectures and free communications by authors representing
    Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, France, Israel, Latvia,
    Netherlands, Poland, Sweden and United Kingdom was published just
    before the seminar.
