The orignal message

The International Symposium on Magnetic Bearings will be held in Mito, Japan, Aug. 26-28, 2002. This meeting will foster multidisciplinary interaction between scientists and serve to inform the community of the current state-of-the-art of magnetic bearing technology. The recent symposia held in Switzerland, Japan, and the USA have shown that this area is not only developing rapidly, but that there are expanding uses for magnetic bearings.
