2017 Northwest Biomechanics Symposium

The biomechanics community in the Pacific Northwest of North America has held successful regional student-centered symposia annually from 2005 to 2016. Continuing in this tradition, the University of Oregon will be the host site of the 13th Annual Northwest Biomechanics Symposium (NWBS).

This symposium, in the spirit of ASB meetings, will encourage students in biomechanics, assist regional collaborations between research institutions, and advance the state-of-the-art in biomechanics. A keynote address will be given by past ASB President, Don Anderson. This will set the educational tone for the symposium, and student presentations will both educate and promote discussion. Round table discussions will facilitate interactions and analysis of technical topics confronting current biomechanics research. Together, these activities will provide an atmosphere rich in student and faculty networking for both career and research advancement.
