Dear Friends,

It is with great pleasure that I can inform you that the international journal "Medical & Biological Engineering & Computing" (Springer) has just published a Special Issue on Shoulder Biomechanics (Vol. 47, No. 5), gathering some of the works presented at our last meeting in Bologna. Among the papers,

Steenbrink F et al "Arm load magnitude affects selective shoulder muscle activation"

have been awarded with the two Young Investigator Awards sponsored by the Biomedical Engineering Group of the University of Bologna and Springer Verlag, and are "Open Access".
