Call For Abstracts:
The 16th Annual Injury Biomechanics Symposium will stimulate and reward strong injury biomechanics research among students and recent
graduates. The Symposium Committee invites abstracts of prospective presentations in all areas of traumatic injury biomechanics. Studies of
interest include those that quantify human injury tolerance, develop analytical or experimental tools that assess injury risk, or evaluate the
effectiveness of safety countermeasures in environments such as automotive crashes, sports injuries or military trauma. All selected podium
presenters will prepare a written manuscript to be included in the symposium proceedings. Honorariums will be awarded to all selected
presenters, both oral and poster.
Abstract submissions should include the following information:
1. A title that clearly reflects the objectives and contents of the paper
2. Information required for each author: Additional information required for Primary Student Author:
• Name • University where research was completed
• Current Affiliation • Department/program enrolled in (e.g. Mechanical Engineering
• Address • Degree sought during work done for abstract (B.S., M.S., Ph.D.)
• Phone • Expected/actual degree completion date
• Email • Advisor’s name
The work presented must have been completed while the primary author was a student. The presenting author must be
currently enrolled or have graduated within the year prior to the symposium; additional authors do not need to be students or
3. An abstract of no more than 500 words containing:
• Clear statement of the study objective(s) • Data to be included
• Outline of the problem that the study attempts to solve • Summary of results and current conclusions
4. State whether you would prefer a poster or an oral presentation slot. All presentations will be virtual. The committee reserves the right
to alter the presentation type based on the submitted abstracts.
