Call for Biomechanics Project Applications:
Sydney 2000 Olympic Games
(15 September - 1 October, 2000)


Following the practice of recent Olympic Games, the Medical Commission of
the International Olympic Committee will sponsor biomechanical research
studies during the Sydney Summer Olympic Games in 2000.

The Subcommission for Biomechanics and Sports Physiology of the IOC Medical
Commission requests project applications from various scientific
laboratories and institutes. Applications should specify the purpose
(benefit to the athlete), research, methodologies, personnel involved and
budget. Specific venue requirements, such as positioning of cameras, must
be clearly stated in the proposal. Preference will be given to projects
that clearly show direct benefit to athletic performance and have the
support of National/International Governing Bodies. Proposal length should
not exceed 6 pages. Deadline for submission is 1st September 1999. The IOC
Medical Subcommission will review the proposals and make the final
selections by 15th January 2000.

Financial assistance will be allocated with consideration to: benefit of
study, personnel involved, analysis procedures, accommodation and travel
costs. Equipment used in each study is the responsibility of the project
team. The IOC Medical Subcommission for Sydney 2000 is looking at a reduced
number of projects which will lead to increased funding for each team.
Accommodation will be provided for the successful Research teams. Research
assistants are planned to be available to assist with projects at the games
and no direct access can be expected with respect to athletes. Where
appropriate, the accreditations, room reservations and local transport will
be arranged by SOCOG in Sydney.

Proposals should be posted to:
