While details of the podium and poster sessions are currently in final review, information is being updated regularly on Facebook (http://tinyurl.com/ASB2011Facebook), the meeting website (http://www.visitlongbeach.com/asb2011), as well as http://asb2011.smpp.northwestern.edu/. We expect the full schedule (including final information regarding details of the podium and poster sessions) to be available within the week.

Highlights of the 2011 Annual Meeting include:

• Tutorials: “Plasticity of Muscle Mechanics” (Professor Rick Lieber) and “Visual 3D: Inside the Black Box” (Tom Kepple, PhD and Scott Selbie, PhD).
• “Virtual” Lab Tours from the USC Biomechanics Community
• Keynote lectures: Professor Christine Ortiz and Professor Jessica Hodgins
• 2011 Borelli Award Lecture: Professor Scott Delp

• ASB Young Scientist Pre-Doc Award: Curtis Goreham-Voss, University of Iowa
• ASB Young Scientist Post-Doc Award: Paul Ivancic, PhD, Yale University
• Invited Symposiums: “Upper Extremity Symposium on Wheelchair Biomechanics” organized by Philip Requejo, PhD and “Teaching Undergraduate Biomechanics” organized by Andrew Karduna, PhD.
• Opening Reception at the Aquarium of the Pacific and Conference Banquet aboard the historic Queen Mary

To meet the increasing demand for participation at the conference, we have expanded the poster sessions at the 2011 Annual Meeting. In addition to 100 podium presentations selected from submitted abstracts, 345 abstracts have been accepted for poster presentation. We will be releasing the final details describing the podium sessions and the expanded poster sessions over the upcoming days, including:

• Two 4 hour time blocks dedicated to posters, with scheduled sessions to maximize interaction between attendees and poster presenters.
• Highlighted poster sessions for the Journal of Biomechanics and Clinical Biomechanics Award Finalists.
• Simulia Computational Biomechanics Award. One $1000 award representing the “Best Computational Biomechanics Paper”. An awards committee assembled by the ASB Past-President is currently selecting the award winner, to be announced prior to the meeting.
• Simulia Computational Biomechanics Student Award. Three $500 awards targeting student posters, highlighted in special sessions. The award winners will be selected by an awards committee assembled by the ASB Past-President. Decisions will be made during the course of the meeting based on scientific content and poster presentation and announced at the closing ceremonies.
• Popular Choice Poster Award. Interactive poster sessions where the conference attendees select their favorite poster from a group of abstracts representing the highest scored abstracts from the peer-review process.

Don’t miss it! We have a fantastic program lined up and we are excited to see you in Long Beach!
