    Second conference of the International Shoulder Group
    15 -16 August 1999
    Calgary, Canada
    second announcement
    deadline for submission march 1, 1999

    Following the succesful conference of the International Shoulder Group in
    1996 in Delft, our second official meeting will be held as a satellite
    meeting of the International Society of Biomechanics. The meeting will be
    held at the University of Calgary.

    Aim
    The conference aims at the stimulation of interaction in the area of upper
    extremity research, and especially the shoulder joint. We strive at the
    interaction between fundamental and applied research, but also between
    those who are active as researchers and those who intend to apply new
    research in their clinical or ergonomic practice.
    Comparable to the first conference in 1996 we hope to stimulate the
    interaction between those active in the fields of ergonomics,
    rehabilitation, orthopedics, neurology or sports. These aims are of course
    reflected in the possible topics of the conference.

    Topics
    Musculoskeletal modelling: development and applications
    Mechanical and physiological load in working conditions.
    Mechanical and physiological load in rehabilitation.
    Mechanical and physiological load in sports.
    Clinical outcome studies.
    Repetitive strain injury.
    Stiffness and stability
    Imaging techniques
    Muscle function and fatigue
    (Endo)prosthesis design
    Bone remodelling
    Motion recording
    Anatomy and Morphology

    Registration
    The registration fee for the conference is CD$300,00 for ISB members and
    CD$320,00 for non-members, if registered before June 1, 1999.
    Registration forms as well as Accomodation forms are available from
    http://www.fbw.vu.nl/research/Lijn_A4/shoulder/isg/forms.html
    Also, these forms can be requested by e-mail from
    Int.Shoulder.Group@WBMT.TUDelft.NL
    The forms are also attached to this mail as Word-files.

    Presentations
    Scientific and application papers are invited for oral presentation. Those
    who would like to present should submit an abstract with a maximum length of
    500 words to the scientific committee. The address is given below. Deadline
    for submission is March 1, 1999. Of course, all abstracts are subject to
    review by the scientific program committee. Abstracts can be submitted in
    electronic and in written form. They should be sent to the scientific
    committee (address below).
    Notification of acceptance will follow before May 1, 1999.
    We intend to publish Congress Proceedings. This implies that all authors are
    requested to submit short papers with a maximum length of six pages A-4 (12
    point Times, 1.5 spaced). Deadline for these papers is September 1, 1999.
    These short papers will go through a (preferably interactive) peer review
    process.
