Journal of Biomechanics
and Organizers of the ISB Congress

thumb DavidWinterAs of 2012, these awards are presented in honour of Professor David Winter and his pioneering contribution to the science and application of biomechanics. There are two YI awards, one for the best oral presentation (sponsored by the Journal of Biomechanics, Elsevier Science Ltd) and one for the best poster presentation (Sponsored by the organizers of the previous ISB Congress). The award recipients are offered a certificate, a monetary award of US $750. A short biography with an outline of the recipients’ professional background is published in the ISB Newsletter and ISB website.

 Requirements: Candidates must be the first author of an abstract submitted to the ISB congress for presentation. They should not have been awarded PhD by the time of the abstract submission, have a maximum age of 30 at the first day of the congress, and must have made the major contribution to the research presented in the abstract. If selected for the final round, the candidate must personally present the paper (whether oral or poster) at the ISB-congress. The abstracts for this competition are solicited with the call for papers of the ISB Congress. Please note: ISB has a policy that an abstract or submitted for an ISB conference award is non-identical to an abstract submitted elsewhere.

When applying for the award, please download the tick-box here, answer the questions and send it back to the ISB Awards Officer, Prof Catherine Disselhorst-Klug (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

    "The ASB Graduate Student Grant-in-Aid (GIA) deadline is January 15th. The GIA supports ASB student members pursuing biomechanics research by offering a source of research funding. The grants are distributed on a competitive basis and are intended to offset the costs directly associated with conducting research. Funds may be used for small equipment items, materials and supplies, and animal or participant costs, but cannot be used to support travel costs, salaries or indirect costs of research. The ASB anticipates awarding 3-5 grants of $2000 each for a one-year period beginning in May. "
