CALL FOR PAPERS
NORTH AMERICAN CONGRESS ON BIOMECHANICS, AUGUST 5-9, 2008

The North American Congress on Biomechanics (NACOB 2008), a joint meeting of the American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) and Canadian Society for Biomechanics (CSB), will be held August 5-9, 2008, at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan, U.S.A. The organizers of NACOB 2008 encourage you to submit papers in a broad range of biomechanics topics, including aging, biofluidics, comparative and developmental biomechanics, cellular mechanics, dental, ergonomics, finite element modeling, injury prevention, locomotion, molecular motors, motor control, neuromechanics, novel instrumentation, orthopaedics, prosthetics, protein folding, rehabilitation, reproductive biomechanics, sports, tissue engineering, and vehicle occupant safety. Both modeling and experimental work is encouraged at scales ranging from the molecular to the whole body level. The program will include four concurrent sessions, lab tours, tutorials, symposia, four keynote lectures, best paper competitions (Microstrain, Clinical Biomechanics, and Journal of Biomechanics awards), the ASB Borelli, CSB Career, ASB Hay, and Young Investigator award presentations. Please see the ASB and CSB web sites for information on awards for outstanding research by student and other investigators. On campus housing will be available.

The deadline for abstract submission is March 1, 2008, and online submission will open February 1, 2008. Note this date is earlier than previously announced. Abstracts are to be submitted electronically at http://www.abstracts.nacob2008.org/. For more information about the meeting, please visit the NACOB 2008 website at http://www.nacob2008.org/.
