S.M. Perren

The S.M. Perren Research Award was first presented at the 2002 ESB Congress in Wroclaw, Poland, and was previously named the ESB Research Award. This award will be given to the first author of the best scientific paper (submitted in this round) based on original and previously unpublished research. Papers will be judged on their scientific merit and must fully conform to the format suitable for publication in the J.Biomechanics. The award is open to all areas of biomechanics research and to both members and non-members. The winner is required to give an award lecture named in Dr. Perren’s honor during the ESB Congress.

The award includes a honorarium of 5,000 Swiss francs (approx. €4,500) sponsored by the AO Foundation in Davos, Switzerland, and a certificate which is presented after the S.M. Perren Award Lecture at the biennial ESB Congress.

Papers in consideration for the S.M. Perren Research Award are submitted directly to the Journal of Biomechanics submission portal (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/journal-of-biomechanics/) and flagged against “Choose Article Type: S M Perren– ESB award article”. The deadline for submission of manuscripts is 1st November 2017.
