Professor Farid M. Amirouche will be a keynote speaker at the International Congress on Sports Dynamics – ICSD 2003, September 1-3, 2003 in Melbourne, Australia. His talk will be entitled “The Fitting of Human Joints During Arthoplasty and Sports”.
The inaugural International Congress on Sports Dynamics, ICSD 2003 aims to provide an international forum for engineers and scientists from around the world who are involved in Sports Dynamics research. The Congress will enable the participants to present and discuss latest trends and findings and to learn about the state-of-the-art in their particular field(s) of interest. Sports Dynamics focuses on the sports, athletes and technology used thus providing scope for interdisciplinary collaboration between various engineering disciplines and diversified areas of sciences such as sport sciences, biomechanics, computer science, physics, mathematics, materials and others. A broad range of topics and application areas have been devised to reflect the interdisciplinary nature of this Congress, all of which involve analytical, computational and experimental dynamics research applied specifically to sports and sports technology.
Contributions are invited in the following areas relating to the dynamics of any sport and sport technology: Dynamics Modelling and Simulation, Biomechanics and Biodynamics, and Experimental Techniques.
Organizers of the Congress include RMIT University, Australasian Sports Technology Association (ASTA), in cooperation with Japanese Sports Engineering Association (JSEA), and International Sports Engineering Association (ISEA)
Professor Amirouche is also on the International Scientific Committee of ICSD 2003.
