  • CSB2006 Call for Papers, University of Waterloo

    Dear Colleague,
    We invite you to attend the 14th Biennial Conference of the Canadian
    Society for Biomechanics (CSB2006) to be held in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada
    at the University of Waterloo from August 16th to 19th, 2006. We will be
    highlighting the influence of fundamental hypothesis-driven research on
    "real world" applications with the theme "From Cell to Society". The
    scientific program and reasonable registration and accommodation costs
    make the meeting very appealing for all registrants, especially student

    CSB is a multidisciplinary group of biomechanists including engineers,
    orthopaedic surgeons, rehabilitation medicine specialists, sports
    biomechanists, physiotherapists, ergonomists, and kinesiologists to name a
    few. The major research areas of the conference include Clinical
    Biomechanics, Occupational Biomechanics, Sports Biomechanics, Muscle and
    Tissue mechanics, Locomotion, Balance and Posture, and Biomechanical
    Modelling. Conference symposia will focus on locomotion and occupational
    health risks. There will be four New Investigator Awards sponsored by NDI
    presented at the meeting.

    The abstract Submission deadline is March 1, 2006. Please visit our
