Society for Strain Measurement Annual Conference. This year the topic is
AUTOMATED STRAIN MEASUREMENT AND ANALYSIS. The conference will include a
dedicated section on Strain Measurement in Biomechanics.
More details can be obtained from myself or through the
address given at the bottom of this email. You could also email abstracts
of not more than 200 words direct to me. The deadline is 1st March 1995
(see below).

Yours sincerely,
