19 - 23 July 2010, Marquette, MI USA www.nmu.edu/isbs

Abstract Deadline: 15th March 2010

The 28th International Society of Biomechanics in Sports Conference will be
hosted by Northern Michigan University (NMU) in Marquette, MI USA. NMU is
located in a stunning environment on the shore of the world's largest
freshwater lake, Lake Superior. Surrounded by miles of forests and mountains
for hiking and biking, beaches for swimming and paddling, Marquette is a
vibrant town rich with culture and history and ripe for shopping and
relaxing. The conference will be held at the NMU University Center with
housing available on campus less than 10 minutes walk from the congress
venue or in local hotels.

Submission of Manuscripts

Scientific papers are requested for oral sessions or poster sessions. All
papers are subject to review by the Scientific Committee. There are two
types of papers accepted for review:

Full length manuscripts: up to 4 pages including a 10 line abstract

Abstracts: 2 page structured abstract of completed research

The format and style are the same for both papers except that there is no 10
line abstract in a structured Abstract (see spacing, margins, font specifics
in the instructions for full papers www.nmu.edu/isbs). Following the TITLE,

authors and affiliations, the paper is structured under the following

All papers must be submitted through the online system www.nmu.edu/isbs by

will be entered into the program. All accepted papers will be published in
the Conference Proceedings and available online at

The topics for ISBS 2010 are listed below. Please choose one relevant topic
when submitting an abstract as it will aid the scientific committee in
grouping presentations within the program. The list has been designed to
cover most areas of sports biomechanics.

Applied instrumentation


Coaching Biomechanics

Data Processing Techniques

Field & land sports

Muscle modeling / function

Paralympic Sports

Sports Injury

Strength & conditioning

Teaching Biomechanics

Training methodologies & equipment

Winter sports

Other topics

ISBS 2010 is pleased to include a Thematic Session on Paralympic Sports.
Authors wishing to submit a paper for this session are asked to use the
guidelines for regular paper submission, but select this topic.

A pre-conference Symposium co-hosted by the Biomechanics Academy of the
National Association of Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) will focus on
teaching Biomechanics.

Social events

An Adventure Activities Afternoon will see delegates able to choose from
rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking or canoeing/kayaking to enjoy the
outdoor beauty of Michigan's Upper Peninsula on the shores of Lake Superior.

An evening boat cruise of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore will follow
a lakeside picnic. An Opening Ceremony and Closing Banquet will also be held
on campus.

Conference Site a "Distinctive Destination"

Marquette, Mich., the site of the XXVI Conference on Biomechanics in Sports
on July 19-23, was recently selected by the National Trust for Historic
Preservation as one of the groups 2010 Dozen Distinctive Destinations.

Marquette was chosen in a competitive juried process because of the cultural
and recreational experiences that set it apart from the typical vacation
destination. Throughout February, an online voting contest is being held to
pick the most popular from the 12 areas, and right now Marquette is has a
wide lead in the contest. Why do people love coming to Marquette? You can
read the nearly 300 comments from some of the online voters by clicking

love visiting and living in Marquette and we think you'll love coming to
visit us, too! As so many of the comments indicate, it's a great place for a
family vacation, so bring your spouse and children, too. Watch for online
registration to begin on March 1 at www.nmu.edu/isbs.

Hope to see you all in July!
