This special issue of the European Journal of Applied Physiology contains a series of 27 short papers that were presented at the 5th International Manikin and Modelling Meeting (5I3 M) held in Strasbourg (France) in September 2003. The meeting was organized by Professor Victor Candas of the National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) at CEPA, Strasbourg. Several technical and physiological aspects of thermal effects on and temperature regulation in humans were discussed at length. As the main issues addressed at this symposium were highly specific and the material of good quality, we decided that a selection of the papers presented might be of interest not only to our academic readers but also to potential industrial users of physical or computer models, particularly in view of the many practical aspects discussed.

The collection—edited byVictor Candas— begins with a brief history of manikin use in thermal physiology by Ingvar Holmér. This is followed by numerous papers dealing with
