> Saturday, March 6th, 2004
> Parnassus Campus
> University of California, San Francisco
> Online registration starts: November 6, 2003
> Abstract Submission Deadline: December 23, 2003
> Dear Colleagues:
> This is the final announcement and call for abstracts for the 12th Annual
> Symposium on Computational Methods in Orthopaedic Biomechanics (the
> "pre-ORS" meeting). Detailed information on the meeting format and
> registration, maps to the meeting site, and the sponsors for the meeting
> can be found on the symposium website at
> http://www.ucsf.edu/~lotzlab/preORS2004.
> Location and Registration:
> The symposium will be held on Saturday, March 6th, 2004 on the Parnassus
> Campus of the University of California, San Francisco within easy access
> via public transit from the Moscone Convention Center in downtown San
> Francisco (the site of the ORS meeting). Registration will begin at 8am,
> with presentations starting at 9am and continuing through the afternoon in
> a single-session format. Each presentation will be 10 minutes long with 5
> minutes allotted for questions.
> We strongly encourage those interested in attending to pre-register for
> the symposium online through the meeting website so that we can adequately
> plan to accommodate everyone. Interest was great enough last year to
> require that registration be closed prior to the date of the symposium. As
> usual, registration and participation are free of charge.
> Objectives:
> The objectives of the symposium are to present 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. In keeping with the tradition of the symposium, this meeting is
> a forum for "junior researchers" to present their ongoing research
> involving computational work of any nature related to orthopaedics.
> Therefore, presentations are expected to be given by the
> student/postdoc/young investigator primarily responsible for the research.
> The symposium will also provide ample opportunity for interactions among
> students, engineers, and scientists from both academia and industry.
> Typical issues that have been discussed in the past include: computer
> modeling of whole bones from quantitative computed tomography scans;
> finite element formulation and implementation of non-linear constitutive
> models for soft tissues; development and numerical behavior of algorithms
> for simulation of bone remodeling; computer modeling of bone-implant
> systems; contact problems; micro-mechanical modeling of tissues; and
> motion/dynamic analysis of the skeleton
> Abstracts:
> Abstracts are requested from all areas of computational research of
> interest to the general orthopaedic biomechanics community. As mentioned
> above, this meeting is a nonarchival forum for "junior researchers" to
> present their work. Presentations are expected to be given by the
> student/postdoc/young investigator primarily responsible for the research.
> The deadline for submitting abstracts for the symposium is Tuesday,
> December 23, 2003. The only format requirement for submitted abstracts is
> a one-page limit in length. Please be sure to include abstract title,
> list of authors, and authors' affiliation(s). 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 the
> Orthopaedic Research Society meeting.
> Please submit abstracts as an attachment in either PDF or MS Word format
> to ahsieh@itsa.ucsf.edu. Any questions regarding abstract submission can
> be sent to the same e-mail address.
