BIOMECHANICS OF HUMAN MOVEMENT REHABILITATION, NEUROSCIENCE
IN ORTHOPAEDICS, AND SPORTS
Eric P. and Evelyn E. Newman Laboratory for Biomechanics and Human Rehabilitation, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, U.S.A., 15-19 June 1986 The measurement and analysis of the kinematics and dynamics of human movement will be the major theme. Comparisons of contemporary motion analysis and force plate systems will lead into demonstrations of, and ‘handson’ experience with the Selspot-based TRACK movement analvsis svstem at both M.I.T. and the Massachusetts General ‘Hospital. Applications will include intertrochanteric osteotomy, acetabulum pressure in vivo, and

MEETING OF THE AMERICAN OF BIOMECHANICS
University of California, Davis, CA, 1618 September, 1987 The American Society of Biomechanics was formed in 1977 to foster interaction among various disciplines. The membership of the Society includes biologists, engineers, ergonomists, health scientists, and physical educators. The Society invites researchers in all areas of biomechanics to submit original scientific papers for presentation at the 1987 meeting. The selection of papers to be presented will be based on scientific quality as well as the relevance of the material to an audience with diverse interests. Abstracts
Short and long abstracts are required for each paper. Those wishing to submit papers should obtain instructions
and mats from the Program Committee Chairperson, whose address appears below. Borelli Award
The ASB annually awards the Giovanni Borelli Award to an investigator who has conducted exemplary research in any of the many areas of Biomechanics. The Awards Committee will consider submissions by individuals or groups in the form of (a) an original unpublished research paper, or (b) a series of up to five published research papers on a single topic or theme. Also, ASB members may nominate others for consideration within the second category. If a nomination is to be made, the member making
