The winning paper will be published as the ISB Clinical Biomechanics Award paper in Clinical Biomechanics (subject to a normal peer review process). The first author of the winning paper will receive a certificate and a monetary award of US $1250.

Requirements: Any scientist may submit an abstract for the award, except members of the ISB Executive Council. The abstract must describe a study related to a clinical problem and contain some form of biomechanical analysis pertaining to the clinical problem. From the abstracts submitted, 5 are selected and nominated for the award. The authors of the 5 selected abstracts are requested to submit a full length paper prepared according to the guidelines of Clinical Biomechanics. The paper must be entirely original, not published at the time of the ISB-congress nor submitted for publication to any Book or Journal other than Clinical Biomechanics. A jury will evaluate the full papers and select the winning paper. The first author of the winning paper is expected to give a 20 min plenary session of the winning paper at the ISB-congress of the same year. Abstracts are solicited for this competition with the call for papers for the ISB Congress. Please note: ISB has a policy that an abstract or manuscript submitted for an ISB conference award is non-identical to an abstract submitted elsewhere.

When applying for the award, please download the CBA tick-box questionnaire 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. "
