    Dear Friends and Colleagues,
                 I am writing on behalf of the organising committee to
    invite you to attend the forthcoming Fifth Annual Perception and Action
    Symposium to be held on Saturday March 24, 2001, at Deakin University,
    Melbourne. The Melbourne Campus of Deakin University is at 221 Burwood
    Hwy., Burwood 3125.

    The 2001 Symposium is again a one-day event, maintaining our tradition
    of bringing together those interested in the interactions between
    perception, attention, and action. In previous years the delegates have
    represented a variety of disciplines, such as Psychology, Ergonomics,
    Neuroscience, Movement Science, Engineering, Medicine, Physiotherapy and
    Occupational Therapy. It is open to academics, students and
    practitioners. The symposium is expected to attract approximately 80-100
    delegates. There is no registration fee.

    For next year’s Symposium the format will be a keynote presentation
    followed by commentaries from a small panel of invited respondents. In
    addition the Committee will encourage delegates to submit, in advance of
    the meeting, a brief comment and question for the keynote speaker’s
    response. The committee will review these submissions with a manageable
    number selected for a public response on the day. We will invite these
    submissions for “Delegates’ Question Time” at a later date when you have
    had the opportunity to review the keynote speaker’s presentation. A copy
    of Professor Lee’s address will be made available on the website within
    the next few weeks.

    The keynote speaker will be Professor David Lee from Edinburgh
    University. Professor Lee’s academic profile, and other information, can
    be obtained from our website:

    Look forward to seeing you all next year.

    Sincerely, Tony Sparrow – School of Health Sciences, Deakin University
