  • NACOB-II (Chicago) starting today

    Dear Biomch-L readers,

    As already announced by Krystyna Gielo-Perczak on March 16 and 27, NACOB-II,
    the Second North Americal Congress on Biomechanics starts tomorrow in the
    McCormick Center Hotel in Chicago. The meeting is combined with the 16th
    Annual Conference of the American Society of Biomechanics and the 7th Bien-
    nial Conference of the Canadian Society for Biomechanics.

    The Canadian Society's symposium Locomotion VII will this year concentrate
    on the interface between research and clinical practice found in gait and
    locomotion assessment laboratories, with the interesting title "Clinical
    Gait and Balance Assessment: Millions of Bits of Data but where is the
    Clinical Information?".

    The ASB's symposium topic is concerned with "Physiologic Adaptation to
    Microgravity: A Severe Hurdle to Extended Spaceflight?", addressed by four
    scientists who have flown with NASA, in particular with the successful
    SLS-1 shuttle mission for biomedical research which flew in June 1991.

    Conference chairs are: - Dr Louis Draganich, Orthopaedic Biomechanics
    Laboratories, University of Chicago
    - Dr Richard Wells, Department of Kinesiology,
    University of Waterloo
    - Dr Joan E. Bechtold, Orthopaedic Learning Center
    and Biomechanics Laboratory, Hennepin Cty Med Ctr,

    NACOB II is sponsored by the Universities of Chicago and Waterloo, the
    Natural Science and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and Biomet Inc.
