Movement Biomechanics and Sport
7-9 June 2009

ETH Zurich, Science City, Zurich, Switzerland

Abstract submission and registration is open now.

List of topics for free presentations:
The workshop focuses on the influence of movement and sport on soft tissues, especially on muscles, ligaments and tendons. From a biomechanical point of view, the workshop welcomes abstracts reporting results from experiments, theoretical modelling, simulation, and new measurement techniques. Multiscale approaches are particularly encouraged.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

- Material response - mechanical effects of loading
Load cases and boundary conditions
Material characterization and modelling
- System response - immediate and short term effects of loading
Load cases during daily activities and sport
Stimulation, injury, pain
- System adaptation - long term effects of loading
Mechanobiology, soft tissue adaptation
Influence of health, age and gender
Chronic pain

Important dates:
1. February 2009 Deadline for abstract submission
15. March 2009 Notice of acceptance
1. April 2009 Deadline for early registration
