The 2007 Northwest Biomechanics Symposium

We are pleased to announce the 3rd Northwest Biomechanics Symposium
(NWBS) to be held May 18-19, 2007 at the University of Oregon in Eugene,
OR. This symposium, in the spirit of ASB 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. Rodger Kram (University of Colorado) on running
mechanics, 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. For the details about the conference
