  • Reminder - Pre-ORS 2004, Computational Symposium, San Francisco,USA

    ********** REMINDER **********


    Saturday, March 6th, 2004
    Parnassus Campus
    University of California, San Francisco

    Online registration starts: November 6, 2003
    Abstract Submission: closed

    Dear Colleagues:

    This is a reminder for the 12th Annual Symposium on Computational Methods in
    Orthopaedic Biomechanics (the "pre-ORS" meeting). Registration and the
    sponsors for the meeting can be found on the symposium website at:

    Please note that the preliminary program and maps to the meeting site are
    now available on the symposium website.

    Location and Registration:

    The symposium will be held on Saturday, March 6th, 2004 on the Parnassus
    Campus of the University of California, San Francisco within easy access via
    public transit from the Moscone Convention Center in downtown San Francisco
    (the site of the ORS meeting). Registration will begin at 8am, with
    presentations starting at 9:30am and continuing through the afternoon in a
    single-session format. Each presentation will be 10 minutes long with 5
    minutes allotted for questions.

    We strongly encourage those interested in attending to pre-register for the
    symposium online through the meeting website so that we can adequately plan
    to accommodate everyone. Interest was great enough last year to require that
    registration be closed prior to the date of the symposium. As usual,
    registration and participation are free of charge.


    The objectives of the symposium are to present current thinking on the
    impact of computer assisted techniques in the field of orthopaedic
    biomechanics, to educate scientist and researchers in the use of these
    techniques, and to promote the use of computer technology in biomechanical
    research. In keeping with the tradition of the symposium, this meeting is a
    forum for "junior researchers" to present their ongoing research involving
    computational work of any nature related to orthopaedics. Therefore,
    presentations are expected to be given by the student/postdoc/young
    investigator primarily responsible for the research. The symposium will
    also provide ample opportunity for interactions among students, engineers,
    and scientists from both academia and industry.
