The paper must be entirely original, not published at the time of the meeting in any journal nor submitted for publication to any journal or book. The paper must describe a scientific study including pressure distribution measurement.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is February 15, 2016.
Six of these abstracts will be nominated for the art in science® Award by April 11, 2016.

The nominated authors will be requested to send a full length (25 pages maximum, double spaced; The general abstract instruction to authors may be found in the Authors section at www.elsevier.com/locate/clinbiomech) paper by May 31, 2016, and will present the paper at the meeting in an approximately 25 minute talk.

Most Promising Proposal MPP
Anyone who has not defended his or her PhD prior to the first conference day (July 27, 2016) is eligible for this award. The goal is to present a project proposal which includes the investigation of load distribution on the human or animal body. The topic area can be freely chosen and a document of maximum 2 pages (excl. reference list) can be submitted to the session chair one hour before the award session starts (7 printed copies have to be provided). No prior disclosure of the title, topic area or any details of the proposed study are allowed. Proposals fitting the requirements will be presented in a separate award session on the 2nd scientific day of ESM 2016. The main author will have 3 minutes for presentation of the study background, concept and plan followed by a 3-min discussion. The presentation should be only verbal, no slides or posters are allowed. The award committee will consist of 3 members of the scientific committee plus 3 randomly selected ad hoc members. The winner will be the most innovative, relevant and most convincingly presented proposal. The winner will be presented at the final conference banquet. The prize money is EUR 1,000


Poster Presentation
Abstracts for poster presentations in the field of load distribution measurement not participating in the art in science® Award must be submitted by February 15, 2016. Participants will be informed of presentation acceptance by April 11, 2016.

Award for the Best Poster will be presented and the award recipient will receive EUR 1,000.

The poster should be in A0 (841 x 1189 mm) format with the text not smaller than font size 32. The title and authors, with affiliations, should be clearly stated. The poster should be broadly divided into sections: Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion and Conclusions. Poster will be viewed during the poster session.

This year again we will offer a thematic posters sessions. All poster presenters are asked to prepare a 3 minute PowerPoint presentation.

The presentation can include maximum 2 slides to convey the core idea and possibly the main result of your study. It is not expected that you present any details or a large amount of information. It is rather expected that you convince the listeners to come and see your poster, where you will then have time to provide them with all the details of your work and discuss your findings. The time for the PowerPoint presentation is limited to 3 min (signal after 2:30 min). Posters are to be hung up prior to the first keynote lecture (before 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 28th) and will remain on the boards for the whole day. Pins for fixation will be provided.
Please remember to take the poster down at the end of the day. The 2-slide presentation should be provided per email prior to the conference to Daniela Jirova at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
