    [Northeast American Society of Biomechanics (NEASB) Conference 2007]

    We are pleased to inform you that Dr. Mary Rodgers (a past president of
    International Society of Biomechanics; University Maryland School of
    Medicine) will have an opening remark at 2007 NEASB Conference currently
    sponsored by ASB and BOSE corp. We are also excited to inform you that Dr.
    Vladimir Zatsiorsky (Penn State University) and Dr. Steven Stanhope
    (National Institute of Health) will give keynote addresses.

    The NEASB conference is a regional meeting of American Society of
    Biomechanics, and it is co-hosted by the University of Maryland at College
    Park and Baltimore, Departments of Kinesiology, Bioengineering, and Physical
    Therapy and Rehabilitation Science. The theme of this year’s conference is
    “Bridging the Gap between Biomechanics and Motor Control." Abstracts from
    outside of the conference theme are strongly encouraged and will be

    The conference intends to provide a welcoming environment for graduate
    students to present their research and get feedback from peer students and
    faculty. In light of this aim, the registration will be FREE. In addition to
    presentations, the meeting will feature tours of the Neuromechanics,
    Cognitive Motor Neuroscience, Orthopaedic Mechanobiology, and Human
    Performance Laboratories at the University of Maryland. We also plan to have
    MATLAB/LabVIEW tutorials by experts from National Instruments. For the
    details about the conference and registration, please visit the website:
