The meeting was held at the Rhode Island Convention Center (RICC) in downtown Providence, Rhode Island, a city of 170,000 combines the charm of a small New England town with the energy of a thriving city.

Over 600 biomechanists and 24 exhibitors attended the meeting and we want to be sure the the next one is even better! So please follow this link and complete the Meeting Survey. We want to hear from you!



The program consist of three concurrent sessions with 104 presentations, two keynote lectures, two lab tours, two tutorials, four symposia and one continuous poster session with 357 posters, lined with 24 exhibitors.  The topics include aging, biofluidics, comparative biomechanics, cellular and tissue mechanics, computational biomechanics, ergonomics, imaging, injury prevention, instrumentation, locomotion, molecular motors, motor control, neuromechanics, orthopedics, prosthetics, rehabilitation, robotics, sports, tissue engineering, and vehicle occupant safety. Both modeling and experimental work at scales ranging from molecular to whole body.
