    *15th ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM on
    COMPUTATIONAL METHODS IN ORTHOPAEDIC BIOMECHANICS*
    *http://www.pre-ORS.org*


    *Saturday, February 10th, 2007
    University of California - San Diego
    La Jolla, California
    Online Registration & Abstract Submission Deadline:
    December 1, 2006*
    *

    Dear Colleagues:*

    This is the first announcement and call for abstracts for the 15th
    Annual Symposium on Computational Methods in Orthopaedic Biomechanics
    (the "pre-ORS" meeting). Detailed information on the meeting format and
    registration, maps to the meeting site, and the sponsors for the meeting
    can be found on the symposium website at http://www.pre-ORS.org.

    *Location:* The symposium will be held on Saturday, February 10th, 2007
    on the Campus of the University of California - San Diego (UCSD) in La
    Jolla, California, and hosted by the UCSD Department of Bioengineering
    and Whitaker Institute of Biomedical Engineering. The site is
    conveniently located, along the southern California coastline, ~15 miles
    north of the location of the Annual Meeting of the Orthopaedic Research
    Society. Registration will begin at 8:00 a.m., with presentations
    starting at 8:30 a.m. and continuing through the afternoon in a
    single-session format.

    *Registration:* Pre-registration for the meeting will be available
    electronically at: http://www.pre-ORS.org/preregistration.html. 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.

    *Objectives:* The purposes of the symposium are to communicate the most
    current ideas on the impact of computer-assisted techniques in the field
    of orthopaedic biomechanics, to educate scientists, engineers, and
    researchers in the use of these techniques, to promote the use of
    computer technology in biomechanics research, and to welcome new
    researchers into the field. In keeping with the tradition of the
    symposium, this meeting is a forum for "junior researchers" to present
    their ongoing research involving computation in orthopaedics. Therefore,
    presentations are expected to be given by the student/postdoc primarily
    responsible for the research. The symposium will provide ample
    opportunity for personal interaction with faculty and other symposium
    participants, and will be a unique educational experience for the
    presenters. The pre-ORS is the premier international forum on the use of
    a new breed of computer based tools in orthopaedic biomechanics.
    *
    Topics: All topics on computation in orthopaedics are welcome. Special
    topics of interest for this upcoming symposium are:*

    * Multi-Scale Approaches to Computer Modeling of Orthopaedic Tissue
    * Finite Element Formulation of Non-Linear Constitutive Models
    * Development of Algorithms for Simulation of Time-Dependent Processes
    * Micro- and Nano-scale Biomechanical Modeling of Tissues


    *Abstract Submissions & Presentations: *Abstracts are requested for all
    areas of computational research of interest to the general orthopaedic
    biomechanics community. As in the past, this meeting is a non-archival
    forum for graduate students and postdocs to present their ongoing
    research. The deadline for submitting abstracts for the symposium is
    Friday, December 1, 2006. Abstracts not exceeding one page should be
    sent via email as attachments in .pdf format to pre-ORS@rice.edu
    . Any questions concerning abstract
    submission can be sent to this email address as well. Please be sure to
    include abstract title, list of authors, and authors' affiliation(s).
    Text should be structured in a dual column format and font size not be
    smaller than 10pt.

    *Presentation: *By submitting an abstract, it is understood that the
    primary author will present her/his work in person if the abstract is
    accepted, and that this work is not being presented at the Orthopaedic
    Research Society meeting. Presentations are expected to be given by the
    trainee (student or post-doc), primarily conducting the research, not by
    the PI. During the symposium the authors will be provided with two
    opportunities to present their work, 1) an oral presentation and 2) a
    poster presentation. With the submission of abstract, it is understood
    that the author agrees to an oral presentation, with the poster
    presentation being optional. Each oral presentation will be 10 minutes
    long with 5 minutes allotted for questions. The poster presentation will
    be informal during the social event in the evening.
