DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACTS - 16th October 2009
ACCEPTANCE OF ABSTRACTS - 20th November 2009

INVITATION & SUBMISSION OF ABSTRACTS
We are pleased to invited both new and previous participants to submit abstracts to
www.cmbbe.cf.ac.uk. A full list of topics can be found on the website page
http://www.cmbbe2010.cf.ac.uk/pages/topics.htm. Note that 10 Special Sessions associated with
particular areas of interest are now offered and proposed abstracts in these areas are now
requested. Please note that papers will be reviewed on a continuous basis in order to speed up the
acceptance process and the programme profile.

SPECIAL SESSIONS FORUM UPDATE FOR CMBBE2010
You are invited to submit abstracts for the following Special Sessions which will be chaired by
experts from within these fields. These areas are considered to be innovative, novel and of prime
importance for the next generation of research and commercial development in biomechanics and to
advance technology translation in healthcare. Please note that submissions for Special Sessions
will be oral (podium) presentations. Abstracts for these sessions or other topics can be submitted
by going to the website www.cmbbe2010.cf.ac.uk and clicking on ‘Topics/Special Sessions’ and
then ‘Abstract Submission’ to submit.
Please note that the deadline for submission is 16th October 2009.
