  • 2006 MWGSBS Announcement

    The Department of Human Movement Sciences and the College of Health Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee are proud to announce that they will host the 2006 Midwest Graduate Student Biomechanics Symposium (MWGSBS) on March 31st and April 1st, 2006. The MWGSBS functions to promote and enhance student research in biomechanics by providing a collegial environment in which to exchange ideas. As such, only graduate and undergraduate students in biomechanics are eligible to present papers at the conference. These papers may range from idea development to completed projects. It is also the goal of this conference to promote interaction among students and faculty of biomechanics programs in the midwest.

    Conference information including details regarding the abstract submission process can be found at: The conference will be held on-campus at UW-Milwaukee, and suggested lodging options are listed on the website.

    Thanks to support from the American Society of Biomechanics, the MWGSBS is free to all attendees, although there will be an additional cost (approx. $20) for the Friday night banquet.

    There will be three keynote speakers representing a range of research perspectives:
    Dr. Joseph Hamill, Department of Exercise Science, University of Massachusetts
    Dr. Clive Pai, Department of Physical Therapy, University of Illinois-Chicago
    Dr. George Papaioannou, Department of Human Movement Sciences, UW-Milwaukee

    Conference Organizers:- Dr. Kristian O'Connor and Dr. George Papaioannou
    Program Co-Chairpersons:- Dr. Thomas Kernozek, UW-Lacrosse and Dr. Jennifer Earl, UW-Milwaukee

    Important Dates:
