About this book

The NATO Advanced Study Institute on Biomechanics of Active Movement and Division of Cells was held September 19-29, 1993 in Istanbul and the Proceedings are presented in this volume. Sixty-eight scientists from sixteen countries attended. Prof. J. Bereiter-Hahn of Goethe-Universitat, Frankfurt, Germany, Prof. A.K. Harris of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, USA, Prof. R.M. Nerem of Georgia Institute of Technology, Atlanta, USA and Prof. R. Skalak of the University of California, San Diego, USA were the members of the International Organizing Committee. As the Scientific Director of the Institute, I wish to express my sincere appreciation for their assistance without which the Institute could not have taken place. This Institute is the third one of the meetings which are now called "the NATO Istanbul Meetings on Cytomechanics". The first one was the NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Biomechanics of Cell Division which was held October 12-17, 1986 in Istanbul. The Proceedings were published as NATO ASI Series A Life Sciences Vol. 132 by Plenum Press in 1987. The second one was the NATO Advanced Study Institute on Biomechanics of Active Movement and Deformation of Cells which was held September 3-13, 1989 in Istanbul. The Proceedings were published as NATO ASI Series H : Cell Biology Vol. 42 by Springer-Verlag in 1990.
