CALL FOR ABSTRACTS FOR THE SEVENTH ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM ON
COMPUTATIONAL METHODS IN ORTHOPAEDIC BIOMECHANICS



The 1999 PreORS Symposium on Computational Methods in Orthopaedic
Biomechanics will be held on Sunday, January 31 at the University of
California Irvine Medical Center in Orange, preceding the 45th Annual
Meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Society.
Since its inception in 1993, this symposium has provided a more
informal setting where graduate students and/or recent graduates have
presented their recent and on-going computational work related to
orthopaedic biomechanics. The audience has also included senior
researchers in the field. This meeting has been a very valuable
educational experience by providing a forum for open discussion and
sharing of ideas.
In the past papers have been presented in the areas of soft tissue
mechanics, bone mechanics, total joint replacement, normal function and
adaptation, contact formulations and dynamic analyses of the
musculoskeletal system. We hope to continue covering the full spectrum
of computational applications in orthopaedic biomechanics and would
encourage presentations with preliminary results or that have emphasis
on computational methodologies. It would be acceptable to present
computational issues related to work being presented at the Orthopaedic
Research Society.
Presentations will last 15 minutes followed by 5 minutes of
discussion. Each session will be led by two co-chairs. There will be
four sessions total, with breaks in between and lunch. The symposium
will be followed by refreshments and Superbowl viewing (with biomechanical
analyses) at a location nearby.

TO SUBMIT AN ABSTRACT
Send by e-mail: a title, authors (& affiliations), and an abstract
(plain text, no figures, no special characters) of less than 350
words. Please send this to: preors99@ortho.ucicom.uci.edu.
The deadline for submission is Tuesday, December 1, 1999. Notification
of acceptance will be by the end of December.

The final program with the accepted abstracts will be posted on a WWW
site that will also include directions to the location of the symposium.
An electronic version of the program will also be sent to the mail list
of the symposium.

TO PRE-REGISTER:
Return this message to preors99@ortho.ucicom.uci.edu with your name
and affiliation. Please indicate whether you are planning to attend
the Superbowl event. A confirmation will be sent back to you.
Meeting registration will also be possible on-site.

If you have any questions or comments about the symposium, please
send e-mail to this address as well.

The organizing committee and I look forward to your abstract
submission and to seeing you at the symposium.
