Dear Biomch-L Colleagues,

Please note: deadline for abstract submission is approaching fast ... only two weeks to go ! See
below for more details.

*******

I'm contacting you again to kindly remain you that the next symposium of The International Society
of Biomechanics (ISB) Technical Group on the 3-D Analysis of Human Movement will take place in June
2006 in Valenciennes (France).

The organisation committee would like to welcome you at this event, and is kindly inviting you to
submit your work. Instructions for authors (including abstract template) can be found at:

http://www.univ-valenciennes.fr/congres/3D2006/instructions.htm

Next to "traditional" topics (Motion Capture, Motion Analysis Kinematics & Kinetics, Imaging and
Image Processing, Animation, Numerical Methods, Optimal Control, Fuzzy Logic, Joint Replacement,
Sport Performance and Equipment, Models and Experiments, Simulation Methodology and
Instrumentation, Robotics, Finite Element Analysis, Computational Biomechanics, and Biomechanics
Simulation), emphasis of this 2006 3D Symposium Edition will be put on:

a) Skin movement artefacts in 3D analysis
b) Adding human interactivity in 3D analysis
c) Improving the clinical exploitation of data for 3D analysis
d) Image analysis
e) Technological issues in exploitation of 3D information of human motion
f) Simulation and modelling (registration, modelling, fusion, decision-making)
g) Combining inverse and forwards dynamics.

Abstracts that describe novel aspects of the above topics and clear links with 3D analysis of human
movement will have the highest priority in the abstract selection process.

Poster and podium presentation can be submitted.

Some important dates:

- January 30, 2006 Abstract submission due.
- February 27, 2006 Notification for abstract acceptance.
- March 27, 2006 Camera-ready abstract manuscripts (Final Form).
- March 27, 2006 Regular registration due which will include lunches, dinners, &/or social events. -


April 24, 2006 Deadline for Cancellations. - June 28, 29 & 30, 2006 Conference.
