The 2011 Meeting of the American Society of Biomechanics will be hosted by the University of Southern California and held August 10 to 13 in Long Beach. The abstract submission website will open on February 9, 2011 and abstracts will be accepted until 5:00 PM EST on March 9, 2011. Meeting information is available through the conference website (http://www.visitlongbeach.com/asb2011), including the template for abstracts.

The organizers of ASB encourage the submission of abstracts on the full spectrum of biomechanics topics, including aging, biofluidics, comparative biomechanics, cellular and tissue mechanics, computational biomechanics, ergonomics, imaging, injury prevention, instrumentation, locomotion, molecular motors, motor control, neuromechanics, orthopedics, prosthetics, rehabilitation, robotics, sports, tissue engineering, and vehicle occupant safety. Both modeling and experimental work is encouraged at scales ranging from molecular to whole body. The program will include concurrent podium sessions, poster sessions, tutorials, symposia, keynote lectures, best paper competitions (Clinical Biomechanics, Journal of Biomechanics), and honorary awards (Borelli, Hay, Young Scientist Pre-Doctoral, Young Scientist Post-Doctoral). Details on the eligibility and nominating requirements for each of the annual awards can be found on the ASB website (www.asbweb.org).

The conference website will be updated regularly to provide links for abstract submission, meeting registration, and program details. In addition, a Facebook page for the ASB 2011 Annual Meeting has been created (http://tinyurl.com/ASB2011Facebook). It links to the meeting webpage, and is intended to help communication for the upcoming meeting. If you're a Facebook user, please "Like" our page for the meeting to keep up to date on the details.
