  • Deadline Extension and 2nd Announcement for CSB2006,University of Waterloo

    Dear Colleague,
    This is the 2nd call for papers for 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.

    Please also note that the abstract submission deadline has been extended until
    March 17, 2006.

    We are pleased to announce that there will be two CSB career award recipients
    who will be giving keynotes:
    1) Dr. Walter Herzog, University of Calgary who will speak on the muscle
    mechanics work he has performed over the past 27 and the impact on applied
    2) Dr. Doris Miller, University of Western Ontario (retired) will give a
    talk titled "Behind the Scenes in Sport Biomechanics" which will reflect oh her
    sports biomechanics work that spanned four decades.

    We are also delighted to be able to present Dr. Ron Zernicke form the
    University of Calgary who will be giving an invited keynote at the
    conference on his work titled "Bone: Cellular Mechanisms to Functional

    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 attendees.

    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 17, 2006. Please visit our website
