Two symposia solicit papers on biomechanics topics for the upcoming Materials Research Society meeting, November 26-30, 2007, Boston, MA. Short-form abstracts are due 20 June, 2007.

Symposium AA, Fundamentals of Nanoindentation and Nanotribology IV, solicits papers on the subject of nanomechanical characterization of biological materials including biomolecules, cells and tissues. Further details can be found here: http://www.mrs.org/s_mrs/doc.asp?CID=8005&DID=192313

Symposium OO, Solids at the Biological Interface, solicits papers on the subject of mechanical and/or material characterization of biological materials and engineered materials in biological systems. Further details can be found here: http://www.mrs.org/s_mrs/doc.asp?CID=8005&DID=192144

A joint session is anticipated between these two symposia with an emphasis on nanomechanics of biological interfaces.


Graduate students who are interested in assisting in the symposium sessions during the 2007 MRS Fall Meeting are encouraged to apply for a Symposium Assistant position at http://www.mrs.org/s_mrs/doc.asp?DID=193016&CID=4749&SID=1&VID=2&RTID=0. By assisting in a minimum of four half-day sessions, students will receive a complimentary student registration, a one-year MRS student membership commencing January 1, 2008, and a stipend to help defray expenses.
