  • ACL Research Retreat V - FINAL CALL FOR ABSTRACTS (Deadline11/23/09)

    FINAL CALL FOR ABSTRACTS -- (Deadline November 23rd, 2009)
    ACL Research Retreat V
    March 25th-27th, 2010
    Greensboro, North Carolina
    Hosted by the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, Department of
    Kinesiology

    ABSTRACT FORMAT and SUBMISSION INFORMATION:
    All abstracts must be research-based and be related to non-contact ACL
    injury. Topics relating to structural, hormonal, or
    neuromuscular/biomechanical, and covering areas of epidemiology,
    screening, prevention and rehabilitation would all be appropriate.
    Abstracts recently presented elsewhere (within the previous year of the
    date of the conference) may be submitted for review. Instructions for
    Abstract Format and Submission can be found at
    http://www.uncg.edu/ess/anrl/abstractsv.pdf

    ONGOING MISSION:
    It has been well recognized that multiple factors, whether individually or
    in combination, contribute to non-contact ACL injury. While research has
    increased our understanding of contributions of these factors, continued
    work in this area is needed. There are a number of directions currently
    being investigated including causes related to structural, hormonal and
    neuromechanical factors. We look forward to hosting the 2010 Retreat in
    Greensboro, North Carolina to update attendees on ongoing research in the
    area and to discuss new research directives aimed at understanding the
    epidemiology, risk factors and prevention of non-contact ACL injury. In
    the past, this retreat has attracted some of the foremost national and
    international scientists involved in this area of research. It is
    anticipated that the information presented will make a valuable
    contribution to the existing body of literature and continue to strengthen
    the foundation upon which quality research and clinical interventions can
    be advanced.

    FORMAT:
    The format will feature presentations by well known experts in the field
    as well as 15-minute podium presentations and poster presentations of
    research relating to non-contact ACL injury epidemiology, risk factor
    identification, and prevention. Significant time will be provided for
    group discussion following each keynote and each group of podium
    presentations. At the conclusion of the meeting our goal will be to
    revisit and update the consensus statement from the 2008 research retreat
    and set sights on future research directions based on progress in the
    field.
