Detailed information

All abstracts for the Ninth International Symposium on the 3-D Analysis of Human Movement must be submitted electronically via email at , by Monday, February 20, 2006. The scientific committee will review the abstracts and will notify corresponding authors about acceptability and/or revisions of the abstracts by Monday, February 27, 2006. Abstracts that meet standards of acceptability will be included in the presentation schedule and in the Proceedings provided to all registered participants. Revised papers must be received by Monday, March 27, 2006 to be included in the Symposium's Proceedings.

Abstracts that explain new measurement methods and describe novel analysis related with human movement in three dimensions will have the highest priority in the abstract selection process. All topics should pertain to three dimensions. Some suggested topics include but are not limited to: 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.

Nevertheless, 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.

The following word file serve as a template for abstract formatting :

Abstract Template

The page limit is 4 pages . Conference manuscripts should adhere to the previous paper template two-column format. This template, created in MS Word 2000 for the PC, provides authors with most of the formatting specifications needed for preparing electronic versions of their papers. All standard paper components have been specified for three reasons: (1) ease of use when formatting individual papers, (2) automatic compliance to electronic requirements that facilitate the concurrent or later production of electronic products and (3) conformity of style throughout a conference proceeding. Margins, column widths, line spacing, and type styles are built-in; examples of the type styles are provided throughout this document and are identified in italic type, within parentheses, following the example. Some components, such as multi-leveled equations, graphics, and tables are not prescribed, although the various table text styles are provided.
