    prospective presentations for the Injury Biomechanics Symposium. Abstracts
    are desired in all areas of traumatic injury biomechanics research,
    including human subject testing, sports injury studies, crash safety
    evaluation, and anthropomorphic dummy research. All selected presenters will
    prepare a written manuscript to be included in the symposium proceedings.

    ***All selected oral and poster presenters will receive a $500 travel
