28th International Society of Biomechanics in Sports Conference

19 - 23 July 2010, Marquette, MI USA www.nmu.edu/isbs

Abstract Deadline: 5th March 2010

The 28th International Society of Biomechanics in Sports Conference will be
hosted by Northern Michigan University (NMU) in Marquette, MI USA. NMU is
located in a stunning environment on the shore of the world's largest
freshwater lake, Lake Superior. Surrounded by miles of forests and mountains
for hiking and biking, beaches for swimming and paddling, Marquette is a
vibrant town rich with culture and history and ripe for shopping and
relaxing. The conference will be held at the NMU University Center with
housing available on campus less than 10 minutes walk from the congress
venue or in local hotels.

Submission of Manuscripts
Scientific papers are requested for oral sessions or poster sessions. All
papers are subject to review by the Scientific Committee. There are two
types of papers accepted for review:

Full length manuscripts: up to 4 pages including a 10 line abstract
Abstracts: 2 page structured abstract of completed research

The format and style are the same for both papers except that there is no 10
line abstract in a structured Abstract (see spacing, margins, font specifics
in the instructions for full papers www.nmu.edu/isbs). Following the TITLE,
authors and affiliations, the paper is structured under the following

Other topics

ISBS 2010 is pleased to include a Thematic Session on Paralympic Sports.
Authors wishing to submit a paper for this session are asked to use the
guidelines for regular paper submission, but select this topic.

A pre-conference Symposium co-hosted by the Biomechanics Academy of the
National Association of Sport and Physical Education (NASPE) will focus on
teaching Biomechanics.

Social events
An Adventure Activities Afternoon will see delegates able to choose from
rock climbing, hiking, mountain biking or canoeing/kayaking to enjoy the
outdoor beauty of Michigan's Upper Peninsula on the shores of Lake Superior.
An evening boat cruise of the Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore will follow
