The Association for the Advancement of Automotive Medicine (AAAM) is a
scientific professional organization devoted entirely to traffic related
injury control. Its multidisciplinary membership represents such diverse
backgrounds as medicine, behavioral research, biomechanics, engineering,
epidemiology, statistics, education, law, and public policy, and
combines clinical, research, academic and administrative backgrounds.
The AAAM Scientific Program Committee (SPC) invites abstracts of
prospective research papers for consideration in planning the 54th AAAM
Annual Conference. Abstracts are anonymously peer reviewed for quality
research, scientific content and logical presentation. By submitting an
abstract the author(s) agree that, if accepted, the paper will be
presented as scheduled.

Abstracts due by 5:00 PM EST • January 6, 2010.
Notifications sent via email by February 12.
The AAAM’s Annals of Advances in Automotive Medicine is an indexed
journal. The papers published in the journal will automatically be
indexed and included in Index Medicus and MEDLINE.

VENUE
AAAM’s 54th Annual Scientific Conference will be held October 17-20,
