Penn State Berks and the Human Movement Research Center are pleased to invite you and your students to attend and present at the American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) East Coast Meeting on April 20-21, 2018 on our campus in Reading, PA. The conference will feature a keynote speaker, workshops, and podium and poster presentations. The program will have an additional emphasis on students, featuring undergraduate and graduate student awards, mentoring opportunities, and heavily discounted student registration fees.

The keynote speaker is Dr. Jill Higginson of The University of Delaware.

Our call for abstracts for podium and poster presentations is open! We are inviting presentations in a broad range of Biomechanics fields. If you have not been previously involved in ASB, we welcome you to present at this conference and make new connections. You can follow updates and obtain more information on the event website at

Note, the date was shifted from March 2 to coincide with the extended deadline for the national conference. There will be no further extensions to this date. Your abstract may be the same or similar to both the regional and national conferences but must use the correct template for each.

Please feel free to forward this message to your students and colleagues that may not have been on the original distribution list. Attached is our promotional flyer for the event.

We hope to see you in April.
