The Symposium will contain keynote lectures, but it will mainly
provide a forum for free communications. Abstracts will be solicited
for free communications (15 minute presentations followed by 5
minutes of Q&A) in early 2006. There will be a proceedings volume
published shortly after the symposium. We will provide the full
details for abstract submission including the peer review process, in
a formal announcement of the symposium to be sent out in early 2006.

Please contact us If your research interests overlap any of the
potential topics listed above, or if you are researching anything
else that will help us all understand skateboarders, enhance our
ability to prevent or treat injuries to skaters, or, enhance
performance or safety in skateboarding.

This first of its kind symposium is meant to be a gathering place for
