    The sixth 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 podium
    presenters will prepare a written manuscript to be included in the symposium

    Abstract submissions should include the following information:

    1. A tentative title that clearly reflects the objectives and contents
    of the paper
    2. Author information (name, current affiliation, address, phone, fax,
