Dear Colleague,
We invite you to attend the 14th Biennial Conference of the Canadian
Society for Biomechanics (CSB2006) to be held in Waterloo, Ontario,
Canada at the University of Waterloo from August 16th to 19th, 2006.
The schedule of presentations has been posted to the conference webpage
and on-line registration is now open. Early registration has been extended
until June 15th.


We are pleased to announce that there will be two CSB career award
recipients who will be giving keynote addresses:
1) Dr. Walter Herzog, University of Calgary who will speak on the muscle
mechanics work he has performed over the past 27 and the impact on applied
2) Dr. Doris Miller, University of Western Ontario (retired) will give a
talk titled "Behind the Scenes in Sport Biomechanics" which will reflect
oh her sports biomechanics work that spanned four decades.

We are also delighted to be able to present Dr. Ron Zernicke form the
University of Calgary who will be giving an invited keynote at the
conference on his work titled "Bone: Cellular Mechanisms to Functional

We will be highlighting the influence of fundamental hypothesis-driven
research on "real world" applications with the theme "From Cell to
Society". The scientific program and reasonable registration and
accommodation costs make the meeting very appealing for all registrants,
especially student attendees.

CSB is a multidisciplinary group of biomechanists including engineers,
orthopaedic surgeons, rehabilitation medicine specialists, sports
biomechanists, physiotherapists, ergonomists, and kinesiologists to name a few.
The major research areas of the conference include Clinical Biomechanics,
Occupational Biomechanics, Sports Biomechanics, Muscle and Tissue mechanics,
Locomotion, Balance and Posture, and Biomechanical Modelling. Conference
symposia will focus on locomotion and occupational health risks. There will be
four New Investigator Awards sponsored by NDI presented at the meeting.

We are pleased to announce Northern Digital Inc. (NDI) as a major sponsor of
the conference. NDI is a producer of advanced measurement systems with their
international headquarters located in Waterloo.

UW is situated in the heart of Waterloo, Ontario, a city of approximately
100,000 residents, just a 1 hour drive west of Toronto. Home to 2 universities
and a community college, Waterloo offers plenty to see and do both on campus
and in the community.

We look forward to meeting you in Waterloo.
