The Symposium on Computational Methods in Orthopaedic Biomechanics (Pre-ORS, for short) provides a forum for junior researchers to disseminate their results in a setting among their peers. Therefore, presentations are expected to be given by the student/postdoc primarily responsible for the research. The pre-ORS is known to be a premier international forum on the use of a new breed of computer-based tools in orthopaedic biomechanics. The symposium is traditionally scheduled to occur the day before the opening of the Annual Meeting of the Orthopaedic Research Society at a nearby University.

The main objectives of the symposium are to present the most current thinking on the impact of computer assisted techniques in the field of orthopaedic biomechanics, to educate scientists and researchers in the use of these techniques, and to promote the use of computer technology in biomechanical research. The symposium will provide ample opportunity for personal interaction with faculty and other symposium participants and will be a unique educational experience for the presenters.
