    Abstract submission deadline: February 9, 2009

    The fifth 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

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

    Abstract submissions should include the following information:
