The 2022 SB3C Organizing Committee chose a hybrid format for this year’s conference to maximize access to the scientific content. All posters, presentations, and plenary lectures will be available for six months for virtual conference registrants.

In order to ensure that the widest possible audience has access to this content, the SB3C will be offering an 80% discount for student virtual registration, which is made possible by funding from the National Institutes of Health. As part of the long-term goal of increasing diversity and equitable access to biomechanics and bioengineering research, this discount will be offered specifically to undergraduate students, 1st or 2nd year graduate students, or any graduate student who is unable to attend SB3C in person because of personal obstacles (e.g., lack of financial resources, lack of childcare, disability, illness, etc.). Individuals from underrepresented populations (see examples below) are particularly encouraged to apply.
