Student Paper Competition 1

Biomechanics, Biophysics and Biomateriomics

EMI’s biomechanics committee is organizing the inaugural Y.C. Fung best student paper competition in bio-mechanics at the EMI 2011 conference. Submissions are invited in all areas of Biomechanics, Biophysics and Biomateriomics, including organ and tissue mechanics, cellular and molecular mechanics and covering all scales from nano to macro. Application areas broadly range from understanding biological systems and mechanisms, and the design of biologically inspired structures and materials, to medical applications, biomaterials and regenerative medicine. Submissions in experimental, computational and theoretical approaches are encouraged. This student award recognizes excellence in research among graduate and undergraduate students to engage a new generation of biomechanics researchers in the various application areas.

Sponsored by:

Biomechanics Committee, Engineering Mechanics Institute (EMI)

American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE)

Submission and Competition Format:

The competition consists of three phases:
1. Submission of an abstract (to any of the sessions at EMI 2011) or full paper (for select symposia), according to the guidelines listed at call for papers (somewhere in the abstract body mark that the contribution is intended for the Y.C. FUNG AWARD FOR THE BEST STUDENT PAPER ON BIOMECHANICS AND BIOPHYSICS),
2. Following abstract acceptance, but no later than April 1, 2011, submission of a 7‐page research paper (format requirements and address below),
3. Oral presentation at EMI 2011. The award winner will be selected based on the evaluation of the 7‐page paper and the performance during the oral presentation at EMI 2011.
