We are pleased to announce that the deadline for submission of abstracts for
the 2011 Gait and Clinical Movement Society conference has been extended!
Abstracts must be received by Friday, December 10th at midnight US eastern
standard time. This announcement is the final call for abstracts for podium
or poster presentations in all areas of gait and clinical movement analysis.

In addition, we have now made an abstract submission template available to
facilitate creation of abstracts. The template is posted on the abstract
submission web site https://www.amrms.com/ssl/gcmas/2011/abstracts.cfm.
Abstracts already submitted that followed the posted abstract submission
guidelines do not need to be resubmitted using this template.

All abstract submissions will be peer-reviewed, and any abstracts in the
field of motion analysis are welcome. Submissions for case studies must
follow the same format specifications as for all other scientific program

Accepted abstracts will be included in the official conference proceedings
and posted online on Science Direct (full text). Gait and Posture will
publish authors' names and abstract titles only. Notification of acceptance
for the conference will be made by February 4, 2011.

About the Meeting: The GCMAS 2011 Conference will be held April 26-29 at
Natcher Conference Center on the National Institutes of Health campus in
Bethesda, MD, USA. The goals of the annual GCMAS Conference are to stimulate
and advance scientific knowledge, promote professional interaction and
collaboration among societies and society members, and advance the field of
gait and clinical movement analysis in the clinical and research
environments. This program is designed for orthopedic surgeons,
neurologists, developmental pediatricians, and physical medicine and
rehabilitation physicians, as well as physical and occupational therapists,
kinesiologists, biomedical/mechanical/electrical engineers, and others
