  • Deadline extension: Northwest Biomechanics Symposium 2010

    The deadline for abstract submission to the 6th Northwest Biomechanics Symposium (NWBS) has been extended to Friday, April 9th at 5pm (PT). As a point of clarification, the NWBS is meant to provide students with an opportunity to present their work (in any stage of completion) to a group of peers and regional faculty. Commonly, this same work has already been submitted to a national meeting (ASB, ACSM, etc). The NWBS thus serves as a good practice round for students before they present at the national stage.

    Detailed instructions for preparing and submitting an abstract can be found at

    The 6th Northwest Biomechanics Symposium (NWBS) will be held MAY 21-22, 2010 at the University of Washington. This symposium, in the spirit of ASB-supported meetings, will encourage students in biomechanics, assist regional collaborations between research institutions, and advance the state-of-the-art in biomechanics. The program will include student presentations (podium and poster), a keynote address by Dr. J.J. Trey Crisco (Brown University), a student/faculty dinner banquet, and round table discussions on current biomechanics research. These activities are expected to provide an atmosphere rich in student and faculty networking for both career and research advancement. Abstracts from all areas of biomechanics will be considered.
