    American Society of Biomechanics 2017 Annual Meeting

    Call for Abstracts

    Submission opens January 15, 2017
    Deadline March 3, 2017

    The American Society of Biomechanics is announcing this call for abstracts for its 41st Annual Meeting in Boulder, Colorado.

    We encourage the submission of high quality abstracts across the full breadth of contemporary biomechanics research, including but not limited to: gait, posture and balance, rehabilitation engineering, ergonomics, musculoskeletal and orthopedic mechanics, prosthetics, orthotics and exoskeletons, cellular, molecular and tissue mechanics, comparative biomechanics, motor control, computational modeling and simulation, sports and teaching. In concert with ASBís enhanced efforts to increase diversity in the field, we encourage submission of abstracts reporting studies of underrepresented populations and health disparities. Furthermore, abstract submission instructions will indicate that appropriate descriptors of study participants should be included in submitted abstracts, such as the age and sex composition of the sample.

    The program will include multiple parallel sessions, research symposia, thematic poster sessions, traditional poster sessions, lab tours, tutorials, and student-focused programming. We are pleased to announce keynote lectures by Dr. Julie Steele of the University of Wollongong and by Dr. Beth Brainerd of Brown University.

    We look forward to our annual best paper competitions (Clinical Biomechanics and Journal of Biomechanics), and the Societyís honorary awards: the Borelli Award, Jim Hay Memorial Award, Goel Award, Foundersí Award, Young Scientist Pre-doctoral Award, and Young Scientist Post-doctoral Award.

    Abstract submission will open on January 15, 2017 and abstracts will be accepted until 5:00 pm EST on March 3, 2017. Instructions for abstract submission, including a Microsoft Word abstract template, are available for download on the meeting website.
