    2008 Injury Biomechanics Symposium
    Abstract Submission Deadline Extended to: February 4, 2008
    Location: The Ohio State University, Columbus Ohio
    Date: May 19-20, 2008

    Abstract submission deadline: February 4, 2008

    The fourth annual Injury Biomechanics Symposium will be held to stimulate and reward strong injury biomechanics research among students and recent graduates. The Injury Biomechanics Symposium Committee invites abstracts of 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.

    Keynote Speaker: Stephen W. Rouhana, Ford Motor Company
    Panel Discussion: Aerospace Biomechanics
    Featuring: Former Astronaut - Nancy J. Currie, Ph.D. (Colonel, USA, Ret.)

    ***All selected oral and poster presenters will receive a travel stipend and have their conference fees waived.***

    Abstract submissions should include the following information:
