We are excited to welcome you to the University of Dayton in Dayton, Ohio for the 2019 Midwest American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) Regional Meeting. The meeting will be held Thursday, February 28th and Friday, March 1st at Curran Place on the University of Dayton campus in Dayton, Ohio.

We are looking forward to welcoming faculty and students from institutions in Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and beyond. Funded in part with support from the American Society of Biomechanics, ASB regional meetings are student centered gatherings which provide opportunity for graduate students, mentors, and other researchers to network and build collaborations as well as to practice scientific communication in a supportive environment. We hope that the convenience and cost of our meeting in Dayton will allow faculty to bring larger groups of students than might otherwise be able to experience the national (international this year) meeting. We also encourage individuals who work in related fields but who may not currently be a part of the ASB or biomechanics community to attend so that we might learn from each other.

Hosted by Dr. Kimberly Bigelow and supported by University of Dayton biomechanics faculty and students in engineering, physical therapy, and health and sports science, we look forward to welcoming you to our campus. Questions about the conference can be directed to MidwestASB2019@udayton.edu

The conference registration website is now open with early bird rates available until Feb 4th ($25/student, $75/faculty and non-students):
