Midwest Graduate Student Biomechanics Symposium
Biomechanics Laboratory
Enderis Hall Room 132
2400 East Hartford Avenue
University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee
Friday March 23 - Saturday March 24, 2001
Schedule and Information

Below are listed the 10 presentations that will compose the program.
We will allocate 15 minutes for each (10 presentation, 5 for questions /
discussion) - a standard format. This will allow the symposium to be
fit in on just Saturday. There are no fees associated with this event
(except parking!). RSVPs will be appreciated to help with our
planning.

EQUIPMENT SUPPORT: Our PC platform is IBM-compatible and a laptop will
be available with PowerPoint (100mb ZIP drive available) and a
projection system (Mac support will be a problem). I anticipate that it
will be possible to connect your own laptop to the projector, if you
choose. Overhead and slide projectors will be available also.

ABSTRACTS: Presenters should submit an abstract. It should be limited
to a single page. Use a 1.5" left margin and a 1" margin for right, top
and bottom. Use a 12 point font and left justify everything. Place the
title in first line and type it in uppercase. List the author(s) in the
second line (presenting author first). The faculty advisor(s) shall be
listed in the third line. The fourth line will hold the institutional
affiliation. Leave a blank line before the actual abstract text. The
abstract text should have the following headings: Background, Purpose,
Methods, Results and Conclusions as appropriate (see a recent Medicine
and Science in Sports and Exercise for an example). It would be most
helpful if you submit this via email as a Microsoft Word document
attachment, or as simple email text. Abstracts due no later than March
21, 2001.

Travel: Our formal building address is 2400 East Hartford Avenue,
Milwaukee, WI 53211. If you input this to http://www.mapquest.com the
directions will be quite accurate. Also check our home page
http://www.uwm.edu and click on the MAPS button for another
perspective. Email me if you have any questions.

Lodging: Check http://hotelguide.net/milwaukee. From this page, check
the listings under Milwaukee North. The Hilton Milwaukee River,
Woodfield Suites, Manchester East, and the Sheraton Inn Milwaukee North
are nice places with pools (there are some others, the Baymont Inn -
Glendale & the Excel Inn, in the same area with fewer amenities and
slightly lower rates). Inexpensive is relative - these are a bit
cheaper than downtown. UWM is on the northeast side of the city, so I
recommend people look northward to make things as simple as possible.
You might consider a couple options in Brown Deer - it's the suburb
where I live. There is a brand new Holiday Inn Express with a pool, a
brand new Marriott Courtyard and the Sheraton mentioned above is
recently refurbished. The Holiday Inn and Marriott are so new that you
will have to call their 1-800 number and ask for the properties in Brown
Deer. These are about 20 minutes from campus and a very easy commute.
There's really nothing else close to campus.
