The program for the this year's ASB conference is coming together and
will including an exciting mix of keynote lectures, symposia on current
topics in biomechanics, award presentations, and regular podium and
poster sessions. We encourage you to participate via submitting
abstracts at the ASB submission website (,
which will remain open until 5:00 PM EST on March 15, 2010. Abstract
guidelines and meeting details are accessible via the conference

The 2010 Meeting of the American Society of Biomechanics will be held
August 18 to 21 in Providence, Rhode Island, a city of 170,000 that
combines the charm of a small New England town with the energy of a
thriving city. The organizers of ASB encourage the submission of
abstracts on the full spectrum of biomechanics topics, including aging,
biofluidics, comparative biomechanics, cellular and tissue mechanics,
computational biomechanics, ergonomics, imaging, injury prevention,
instrumentation, locomotion, molecular motors, motor control,
neuromechanics, orthopedics, prosthetics, rehabilitation, robotics,
sports, tissue engineering, and vehicle occupant safety. Both modeling
and experimental work is encouraged at scales ranging from molecular to
whole body. The program will include three concurrent sessions, lab
tours, tutorials, symposia, keynote lectures, best paper competitions
(/Clinical Biomechanics, Journal of Biomechanics)/, and honorary awards
(Borelli, Hay, Young Scientist Pre-Doctoral, Young Scientist
Post-Doctoral). Information on the eligibility and nominating
requirements for each of the awards is accessible at the ASB website
