ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS

It is our pleasure to announce the First Upper Midwest Student Regional
Meeting of the American Society of Biomechanics to be held November 12
and 13, 2004 in Minneapolis Minnesota.

The Upper Midwest Student Regional Meeting seeks to foster the
professional development of graduate and undergraduate students in
biomechanics by providing students an opportunity to present their
research to the biomechanics community. As such, only graduate and
undergraduate students in biomechanics are eligible to present papers
at the conference. Details regarding the abstract submission process
and presentation format can be found at the conference website,
www.orthotrauma.us/asb.htm

The conference also seeks to promote biomechanics and to increase the
exchange of ideas among biomechanics programs within the Upper Midwest.
It is organized in conjunction with two associated biomechanics and
orthopaedic research symposia occurring in Minneapolis on the same
weekend.
