View Full Version : IRCOBI Biomechanics Course and the 2nd Young APSN Conference

05-29-2006, 06:15 PM
I would like to inform you that the second "Young APSN Conference" will be
organized by ViSEB Lab, Warsaw University of Technology (WUT), at the
Central Campus of WUT (information on building name and room number will be
posted soon), on June 14th, 2006.

The conference will be preceded with the IRCOBI Biomechanics Course (focused
on biomechanics of impact) organized at the same place on June 12-13.

Both the course and the conference are not restricted to delegates
representing the APSN partners
-- all interested participants are welcome!

The idea of the "Young APSN Conference" (YAPSN) is to give early stage
researchers, working in the road safety field, suitable occasion to present
(during 10-15 minutes PowerPoint presentation) their research work and to
meet each other.

Combination of the YAPSN Conference with the IRCOBI Course will give the
participants excellent opportunities to extend their knowledge in the
important field of biomechanics of impact.

IRCOBI course topics:

a.. Introduction and History of Biomechanics
b.. Injury Scaling
c.. The Head - Anatomy, Injuries, Mechanisms, Criteria
d.. Accident Data and Sources
e.. Injury Data Sources
f.. The Neck - Anatomy, Injuries, Mechanisms, Criteria
g.. Abdomen & Limbs - Anatomy, Injuries, Mechanisms, Criteria
h.. The Chest - Anatomy, Injuries, Mechanisms, Criteria
i.. Impairment Scaling
j.. Kinematics - Front, Side, Rear, Rollover
k.. Testing, Dummies, Modelling
l.. Pedestrians
m.. Vehicle Crashworthiness Assessment
n.. Advanced Restraint Design
You are kindly asked to delegate one young high-potential
researcher/Master/PhD student to participate in this event. Participation in
both the IRCOBI Course and the Young APSN Conference is free (organizers
cover board and accommodation and will refund costs of travel up to 200Euro)
for ONE delegate per APSN partner.

The APSN "first delegates" will be accommodated free of charge in the
tourist-class hotel. Information how to find the hotel will be posted soon.

Registration/hotel forms for the "first delegates" chosen by the APSN
partners, are available here -- PDF and WORD versions.

Please register as soon as possible.


we will charge a fee of 125 Euro (IRCOBI course only) or 160 Euro (the
IRCOBI Course + YAPSN Conference) covering costs of handouts, lunches,
dinner on June 12th and refreshments and we WILL NOT cover accommodation and
travel costs. You should also arrange the accommodation by yourself via
numerous hotels available in Warsaw. We are happy to provide any assistance
if necessary. Please have a look at some useful links (the first one with
interactive hotel map; moving a mouse over a central part of the map you
will also find location of the WUT campus):


The ***hotel "MDM" seems to be a good choice. It is situated very close to
the course/conference site (5 minutes slow walk) -- direct link:


Another option are tourist-class hotels: ATOS and ARAMIS with good access to
the conference place by public transportation -- direct link:


Registration/fee payment information forms for all other interested
participants (who are not the "first delegates" of the APSN partners) are
available here -- PDF and WORD version.

We kindly ask you to register very soon.
