The Department of Human Movement Sciences and the College of Health Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee are proud to announce that they will host the 2006 Midwest Graduate Student Biomechanics Symposium (MWGSBS) on March 31st and April 1st, 2006. The MWGSBS functions to promote and enhance student research in biomechanics by providing a collegial environment in which to exchange ideas. As such, only graduate and undergraduate students in biomechanics are eligible to present papers at the conference. These papers may range from idea development to completed projects. It is also the goal of this conference to promote interaction among students and faculty of biomechanics programs in the midwest.

There will be three keynote speakers representing a range of research perspectives:
Dr. Joseph Hamill, Department of Exercise Science, University of Massachusetts Amherst
Dr. Clive Pai, Department of Physical Therapy, University of Illinois-Chicago
Dr. George Papaioannou, Department of Human Movement Sciences, UW-Milwaukee

Conference information including details regarding the abstract submission process can be found at the above website. The conference will be held at two locations. On Friday, we will meet off-campus at the Cozzens Research Center, and Saturday will be held on-campus at UW-Milwaukee. Directions to these locations and suggested lodging options are listed on the website.

Thanks to support from the American Society of Biomechanics, the MWGSBS is free to all attendees.

Dinner on Friday night will be a fish fry held at a local brewery (Lakefront) and will be preceded by a brewery tour for all those interested Thanks to a corporate sponsor, Innovative Sports Training, Inc., the beer tour will be free. There will be an additional cost (~$20) for dinner.

We look forward to seeing you in Milwaukee!
