- Last call for abstracts -
Tenth Annual Symposium on COMPUTATIONAL METHODS IN

Submission Deadline - December 10th, 2001

Dear Colleagues:

This is the third announcement and last call for abstracts for the
Tenth Annual Symposium on Computational Methods in Orthopaedic
Biomechanics (the "pre-ORS" meeting) in Dallas.

Location and Registration: The pre-ORS symposium will be held on
Saturday, February 9, 2002 at the auditorium on the south campus of the
University of Texas, Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas (UTSW).
Registration will begin at 8 a.m., with a single session format running
through the afternoon. Pre-registration for the meeting can be performed

at: http://www.rice.edu/pre-ORS2002/preregistration.html.

Registration and participation is free of charge.

Objectives: The objectives of the symposium are to present the most
current thinking on the impact of computer assisted techniques in the
field of orthopaedic biomechanics, to educate scientist and researchers
in the use of these techniques, and to promote the use of computer
technology in biomechanical research.

By tradition of this symposium, presentation of research is limited to
"junior" researchers (either graduate students or PhDs within five years

of their degree) who are actively involved in computational work of any
nature related to orthopaedics.

Abstracts: Abstracts are requested for all areas of computational
research of interest to the general orthopaedic biomechanics community.
As in the past, this meeting is a nonarchival forum for graduate
students and postdocs to present their ongoing research. Presentations
should be given by the student/postdoc primarily responsible for the
research, not by the PI.

Abstracts Format: The abstract length is not to exceed one page and
should be sent via email as attachments in .pdf format or as Word'97
file to preors@rice.edu. There is no other format requirement.
The deadline for abstracts is December 10, 2001. By submitting an
abstract, it is understood that you will present your work in person if
your abstract is accepted, and that this work is not being presented at
Orthopaedic Research Society. Any questions concerning abstract
submission can be sent to this email address as well.
