Dear Colleagues & ISBS Members



This is the final call for papers for the XXVII International Society of Biomechanics in Sports Conference (ISBS 2009); the closing date for submission of papers is the 1st April 2009 at 23:59 (BST).



The organising committee has also been working extremely hard with local suppliers and within severe budget constraints in an attempt to reduce the conference registration fee and still maintain a first-class conference experience. We are now delighted to announce a new pricing structure for delegate registration; details of this will be available at www.isbs2009.com within the next few days (for those who have already registered you will receive a refund of the difference).



We are also in the position to offer several postgraduate assistance grants; these will be in the region of €100 each and will be formally announced within the next month.



Original call for papers included below.



We look forward to welcoming you to Limerick in August.

Limerick City is the hub and capital of the Shannon Region and the 3rd largest city in the Republic of Ireland. Its colourful and fascinating history is evident everywhere and proudly maintained. Limerick is a proud, progressive and thriving City with a charter older than that of London; its castles, ancient walls and museums are testament to its dramatic past. Limerick embraces its sporting nature; the spiritual home to Munster Rugby, a very strong heritage in rowing, world renowned golf courses, and an all embracing culture around sport makes it an exciting place to hold ISBS 2009.
