    ********** ANNOUNCEMENT AND SECOND CALL FOR ABSTRACTS **********

    18th ANNUAL SYMPOSIUM on
    COMPUTATIONAL METHODS IN ORTHOPAEDIC BIOMECHANICS
    http://www.pre-ORS.org


    Friday, March 5th, 2010
    Tulane University, New Orleans
    Louisiana

    Abstract Submission Deadline: December 7th, 2010
    Pre-Registration open till: February 5th, 2010


    Dear Colleagues:

    This is the first announcement and call for abstracts for the 18th Annual
    Symposium on Computational Methods in Orthopaedic Biomechanics (the
    ≥pre-ORS≤ meeting). Detailed information on the meeting format and
    registration, maps to the meeting site, and the sponsors for the meeting can
    be found on the symposium website at http://www.pre-ORS.org.

    Location: The symposium will be held on Friday, March 5th, 2010 on the
    Campus of Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana, and locally hosted
    by the College of Science and Engineering, Department of Biomedical
    Engineering. The site is conveniently located in uptown New Orleans and less
    than 5 miles east of the location of the Annual Meeting of the Orthopaedic
    Research Society. Registration will begin at 7:30 a.m., with presentations
    starting at 8:30 a.m. and continuing through the afternoon in a
    single-session format.

    Registration: Pre-registration for the meeting will be available
    electronically at: http://www.pre-ORS.org/preregistration.html. We strongly
    encourage those interested in attending to pre-register for the symposium
    online through the meeting website so that we can adequately plan to
    accommodate everyone. Interest was great enough last year to require that
    registration be closed prior to the date of the symposium. As usual,
    registration and participation are free of charge.

    Objectives: The purposes of the symposium are to communicate the most
    current ideas on the impact of computer-assisted techniques in the field of
    orthopaedic biomechanics, to educate scientists, engineers, and researchers
    in the use of these techniques, to promote the use of computer technology in
    biomechanics research, and to welcome new researchers into the field. In
    keeping with the tradition of the symposium, this meeting is a forum for
    ≥junior researchers≤ to present their ongoing research involving computation
    in orthopaedics. Therefore, presentations are expected to be given by the
    student/postdoc primarily responsible for the research. The symposium will
    provide ample opportunity for personal interaction with faculty and other
    symposium participants, and will be a unique educational experience for the
    presenters. The pre-ORS is the premier international forum on the use of a
    new breed of computer based tools in orthopaedic biomechanics.

    Topics: All topics on computation in orthopaedics are welcome. Special
    topics of interest for this upcoming symposium are:
    ∑ Multi-Scale Approaches to Computer Modeling of Orthopaedic Tissue
    ∑ Numerically Derived Non-Linear Constitutive Models
    ∑ Algorithms for Simulation of Time-Dependent Processes
    ∑ Micro- and Nano-scale Biomechanical Modeling of Tissues Behavior


    Abstract Submissions & Presentations: Abstracts are requested for all areas
    of computational research of interest to the general orthopaedic
    biomechanics community. As in the past, this meeting is a non-archival forum
    for graduate students and postdocs to present their ongoing research. The
    deadline for submitting abstracts for the symposium is Monday, December 7,
    2009. Abstracts not exceeding one page should be sent via email as
    attachments in .pdf format to pre-ORS@bcm.edu. Any questions concerning
    abstract submission can be sent to this email address as well. Please be
    sure to include abstract title, list of authors, and authors'
    affiliation(s). Text should be structured in a dual column format and font
    size not be smaller than 10pt.

    Presentation: By submitting an abstract, it is understood that the primary
    author will present her/his work in person if the abstract is accepted, and
    that this work is not being presented at the Orthopaedic Research Society
    meeting. Presentations are expected to be given by the trainee (student or
    post-doc), primarily conducting the research, not by the PI. During the
    symposium the authors will be provided with two opportunities to present
    their work, 1) an oral presentation and 2) a poster presentation. With the
    submission of abstract, it is understood that the author agrees to an oral
    presentation, with the poster presentation being optional. Each oral
    presentation will be 10 minutes long with 5 minutes allotted for questions.
    The poster presentation will be informal during the social event in the
    evening.
