News from the ISB Technical Group on Computer Simulation (TGCS)
The ISB Technical Group on Computer Simulation is responsible for organizing the biennial International Symposium on Computer Simulation in Biomechanics held before the main ISB Congress, as well as facilitating interactions and resources that will improve the utility of computer simulations for biomechanics research.

Elections for the TGCS Executive Board
The ISB Technical Group on Computer Simulation (TGCS) is seeking nominations for 5 new members of its executive board (4 regular members and 1 student member). We are accepting both regular nominations and self nominations. Those wishing to nominate themselves should submit a nomination to the TGCS Secretary General; those wishing to nominate another person should submit a nomination to the TGCS Secretary General only after having confirmed that the person in question agrees to be nominated.

Nominations should be sent by email to the Secretary General (Rick Neptune, at  rneptune@mail.utexas.edu) by October 1st 2010. Please make the title of the message ‘TGCS Executive Board Nomination.

K.U. Leuven welcomes the 13th Biennial International Symposium on Computer Simulation in Biomechanics:
June 30th-July 2nd, 2011.
You are cordially invited to attend next year’s Computer Simulation Symposium in Leuven (Belgium) from June 30th-July 2nd, organized by the ISB Technical Group on Computer Simulation (TGCS).

By tradition, this symposium is a scientific and technical meeting for investigators and students in all areas of computer simulation in biomechanics, especially human movement, motor control, and robotics related to biomechanics.

We are currently in the process of defining an exciting program with keynote lectures by experts in the field, oral presentations and computer demonstrations. A call for abstracts for oral presentations is to be expected in fall, with submission deadline around March 1st, 2011.

With its location only 15 minutes away by train from Brussels and with a venue next to the railway station, this symposium will allow a smooth and easy transfer to the ISB conference in Brussels.

Stay tuned for more information as our plans including many new ideas evolve! If you have suggestions or comments that you would like the planning committee to consider, please do not hesitate to contact us (TGCS@faber.kuleuven.be).

We look forward to seeing you in Leuven!


Sincerely,
Ilse Jonkers
