The organizers of the ASB encourage the submission of abstracts on the entire spectrum of biomechanics-related research including but not limited to muscle mechanics, 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, muscle, sports and teaching. The program will include multiple parallel sessions, research symposia and thematic poster sessions, lab tours, tutorials, keynote lectures, best paper competitions (Clinical Biomechanics, Journal of Biomechanics), and honorary awards (Borelli, Hay, Young Scientist Pre-Doctoral, Young Scientist Post-Doctoral), and, new this year, student presentation competitions. Meeting information is available through the meeting website (http://asb2018.asbweb.org), including links for the abstract template and submission, meeting registration, updated news and details on the eligibility and nominating requirements for each of the ASB society awards.
