American Society of Biomechanics
2017 Annual Meeting
Call for Abstracts
Submission opens January 15, 2017
Deadline March 10, 2017


We encourage the submission of high quality abstracts across the full breadth of contemporary biomechanics research, including but not limited to: 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, sports and teaching. In concert with ASB’s enhanced efforts to increase diversity in the field, we encourage submission of abstracts reporting studies of underrepresented populations and health disparities. Furthermore, abstract submission instructions will indicate that appropriate descriptors of study participants should be included in submitted abstracts, such as the age and sex composition of the sample.

The program will include multiple parallel sessions, research symposia, thematic poster sessions, traditional poster sessions, lab tours, tutorials, and student-focused programming. We are pleased to announce keynote lectures by Dr. Julie Steele of the University of Wollongong and by Dr. Beth Brainerd of Brown University.

We look forward to our annual best paper competitions (Clinical Biomechanics and Journal of Biomechanics), and the Society’s honorary awards: the Borelli Award, Jim Hay Memorial Award, Goel Award, Founders’ Award, Young Scientist Pre-doctoral Award, and Young Scientist Post-doctoral Award.
