SOUTH EAST BIOMECHANICS CONFERENCE 2006

It is our pleasure to announce the FIRST South East Biomechanics Conference
to be held MARCH 30 – APRIL 1, 2006 at the Georgia Institute of Technology
in Atlanta, Georgia. The major aims for this regional ASB meeting are to
provide a welcoming environment for students to present and receive feedback
on their research; and, to create an informal scientific environment that
encourages interaction between students and faculty. Due to generous support
by the American Society of Biomechanics and the School of Applied Physiology
(Georgia Tech) registration and Friday night banquet are free to all
attendees.

The theme will be “COMPARATIVE BIOMECHANICS: BORELLI MEETS KROGH” which will
be highlighted with keynote addresses by Dr. Andrew Biewener (Harvard
University, ASB Past-president) and Dr. Robert Gregor (Georgia Tech, ASB
Past-president). However, abstracts from all areas will be accepted. Besides
podium presentations, the meeting will include a student/faculty banquet as
well as tours of several biomechanics laboratories on the Georgia Tech
campus. Details regarding the abstract submission and presentation format
will be available from January 2006 at the conference website:
