    Abstract Notifications

    Good afternoon everyone,

    On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 20th Biennial Meeting of the Canadian Society for Biomechanics, we wanted to send out a brief but important update. Notifications of acceptance of submitted abstracts as either a poster or podium presentation were sent out via our web portal on Thursday May 24th, so everyone who submitted an abstract should have received a notice from us.

    In early June, our website will be updated with a list of our keynote presenters along with our symposium presenters. We are currently finalizing the program and if you have an accepted abstract, you will be notified in June with the specific date and time of your poster or podium presentation session.

    All attendees chosen for either poster or podium presentations must register for the conference before July 1st, 2018 and we encourage everyone who plans on attending the conference to register by this date as well. Registration for the conference is now open and available at our registration page, with early bird rates being in effect until July 1st, 2018.

    We also highly encourage you to book your accommodations as early as possible at the conference hotel, the Westin Nova Scotian, as August is a very busy tourism season in Halifax and Nova Scotia. Please use this conference booking link to get the discounted conference rate, which can also be found on our website.

    If you have questions with respect to any aspect of CSB 2018, please do not hesitate to email and we will get back to you usually within that day. We very much look forward to having you in Halifax this August for the 20th Biennial Meeting of the Canadian Society for Biomechanics.

    Registration for CSB 2018 is now open and can be found here. Please note that all registrations include admission to all conference events including symposia, keynote lectures, workshops, opening ceremonies/reception, and closing banquet. Additional banquet tickets can be purchased at the time of registration for an additional cost of $100. Online payment is available with credit card.
