It is our pleasure to announce the Second South East Biomechanics
Conference to be held APRIL 19-APRIL 21, 2007 at Duke University in
NC. Abstract Submission is now open for SEBC 2007 and will close February
1, 2007. The major aims for this regional ASB meeting are to provide a
welcoming environment for students to present and receive feedback on
their research; and to create an informal scientific environment that
encourages interaction between students and faculty.

The theme is "BIOMECHANICS: from Injury Prevention to Performance
Enhancement" which will be highlighted with keynote addresses by Dr. Irene

Davis (University of Delaware) and Dr. Farshid Guilak (Duke University,
Editor in Chief Journal of Biomechanics). However, abstracts from ALL
areas of biomechanics will be accepted and are encouraged. In addition to
student presentations, the meeting will include a student/faculty banquet
as well as tours of several biomechanics laboratories on the Duke
University campus. Details about the conference and call for abstracts can

be found at the SEBC website:

- Abstract Submission Deadline: February 1, 2007
