Dear Biomechanics Community,

At the upcoming 9th International Symposium on Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering, to be held in Valencia from the 24th-27th February 2010 (http://www.cmbbe2010.cf.ac.uk/), we will hold a 'Zimmer Special Session on Upper Limb Biomechanics'.

The upper limb presents unique challenges to health care providers, and is currently one of the fastest growing markets in orthopaedics. New and innovative prosthetic options for the shoulder, elbow, wrist and finger joints are emerging globally, and a sustained focus on the techniques used to analyse, describe and optimise the performance of these complicated joints is necessary to ensure their continued development.

We are now looking for novel research papers addressing these topics, and we invite you to submit an abstract to this special session.

Submissions relating to the upper limb in the areas of FEA, kinematics, motion capture, prosthetic design, prosthetic performance, musculoskeletal anatomy and tribology are welcomed.

Abstract submission is now open, and the deadline is October 16th 2009. You may submit your abstract via the conference website, selecting the special session SS10 (http://www.cmbbe2010.cf.ac.uk/pages/abstract%20submission/abstract%20new.asp).

We look forward to seeing you in Valencia.

Best regards,

Dr Andrew R Hopkins
