  • CALL FOR ABSTRACTS: ESB2010, 5-8th July 2010, Edinburgh, UK

    17th Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics
    5 - 8 July 2010, Edinburgh UK
    Abstract Deadline: 30th November 2009

    The 17th Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics will be hosted by The University of Edinburgh, Scotland, UK. The University's central campus in located in the city's Old Town, at the heart of the capital. Edinburgh is one of the greenest and architecturally most beautiful cities in Northern Europe, with a colourful history based on the nation's political and cultural past. The University was founded in 1558 and features some of the grandest buildings in the city, as well as the most modern academic facilities and services. Lectures will be held amongst the University's George Square with no more than 5 minutes walk in between congress venues.

    The 2010 meeting will cover the ESB's traditional core topics while including emerging research areas in which much new and exciting biomechanics research is taking place. A pre-course will draw on the experience of experts in their field to provide state of the art knowledge in an area of general biomechanics interest. Plenary sessions are planned to address current "hot topics" in biomechanics research, and to provide valuable insight into the ever-increasing importance of collaborative research, interdisciplinary programs, EU funding opportunities and biomechanical education programmes.

    Submission of Abstracts

    Abstracts can be submitted for either oral or poster presentation. All abstracts must be submitted through the online system ( by Monday 30th November 2009. There will be no extension of this deadline. You will receive automatic confirmation that your abstract has been received. Please note that only fully registered delegates can present at the conference and only abstracts of delegates who are fully registered will be entered into the programme.

    All abstracts must be submitted by one of the authors of that abstract. The submitter will provide their details for reference, and include all corresponding authors of the same abstract.

    All abstracts should be submitted as a single A4 page only, using the downloadable template as a guide. Please use this template to create a PDF file for upload. PDFs should be no larger than 700kb.

    All accepted abstracts will be subject to publication in conference literature.

    The topics for ESB2010 are listed below. Please choose one relevant topic when submitting an abstract as it will aid the scientific committee in grouping presentations within the programme. The list has been designed to cover most areas of biomechanical study.
    * Cardiovascular mechanics
    * Non-cardiovascular biofluid mechanics
    * Bone and dental mechanics
    * Mechanobiology
    * Motion and sports biomechanics
    * Implant and joint biomechanics
    * Soft Tissue mechanics
    * Other topics

    Kind regards,

    Prof. Mark Taylor
    Professor of Bioengineering Science
    University of Southampton UK
