Student’s Corner – September, 2012

Posted on September 27, 2012

Hi Student Members!

The ISB council had the opportunity to meet in Brisbane, Australia, immediately following the conference for International Society of Electrophysiology and Kinesiology (ISEK) in July. We discussed many exciting plans for ISB2013 Brazil, including options for student events and student travel grants! The student grant guidelines have been updated and are due November 30th (see http://isbweb.org/student-section/student-grants)! There are also additional options for student members from Economically Developing Countries to apply for travel grants to ISB2013 Brazil (see http://isbweb.org/econ-dev-countries-projects/edc-information). Read the guidelines carefully (and email me if you have questions) because some travel grant applications require abstracts to be presented at ISB2013 Brazil by November 30th (earlier than the regular abstract submission date).

Though our Facebook presence is still growing, during the meeting in Brisbane, we also decided to increase the social presence of ISB by joining the Twitter community (@ISBiomechanics) and creating an ISB active members-only group on LinkedIn (please see the article in the newsletter). There are links to these social media on our website! Both sites allow the ISB council to easily share information about upcoming events and opportunities with our members.

Finally, there were two ISB student dinners this summer; one at ISEK 2012 and one at American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) 2012! It was great spending quality time together with ISB president-elect John Challis and ISB past-president Julie Steele. Thank you everyone for participating! As always, please do not hesitate to email me with any questions or suggestions!
