ESM Awards

art in science® Award


art-in-science-award
 

In 1991, the first novel award was presented in recognition of excellence in pressure distribution research. The novel award recipient was determined by an international review committee from the fields of biomechanics and medicine. The novel award for pressure distribution measurement research continued since then to be endowed by novel.
In 2010 the “novel award” was renamed the “art in science® Award”. The prize will be awarded to scientists presenting papers not only associated with pedography or foot biomechanics, but for any research in the field of sensing body contact and dynamic load distribution.
The art in science® Award 2016, with a prize of EUR 5,000 will be presented for the best scientific manuscript in the field of dynamic load distribution in biomechanics. 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.
The review of the papers will be conducted by a prominent panel of experts. The nominated authors are requested to send a full length paper by the May 31, 2016 date and will present the paper at the meeting during a 25 minute talk. The art in science® Award will be presented to the winner at the banquet, July 30, 2016.

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 the MPP 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 max. two pages (excl. reference list) must be submitted to the session chair not earlier than one hour before the award session starts. Seven printed copies must be provided. Proposals fitting the requirements will be presented in a separate session during ESM 2016. The main author will have 3 min for an oral presentation (no slides or posters) and 3 min for discussion.
The winner will be the most innovative, relevant and most convincingly presented proposal. The award recipient will receive EUR 1,000.
