ANZSB Publication of the Year Award
There were six papers nominated for the award. Four finalist were selected by non-conflicted members of the executive committee which were then sent to two senior independent assessors in the field of Biomechanics with no conflicts of interest, one national and one international. Both commented that all papers were of high quality and the decision was difficult. However the result was unanimous with the inaugural winning being
Pizzolato, C., Lloyd, D. G., Sartori, M., Ceseracciu, E., Besier, T. F., Fregly, B. J., & Reggiani, M. (2015). CEINMS: A toolbox to investigate the influence of different neural control solutions on the prediction of muscle excitation and joint moments during dynamic motor tasks. J Biomech, 48(14), 3929-3936. doi: 10.1016/j.jbiomech.2015.09.021
Congratulations to all authors but in particular the ANZSB member Claudio Pizzolato and David Lloyd from Griffith University and Thor Besier from the University of Auckland

Some changes have been made to procedures for joining the ANZSB. Starting in 2015, a term of membership is two years rather than just one. So people who become members in 2015 will receive membership for 2015 and 2016. Join now to get the best value for your membership fees! Membership for two years is AUD $100 for full membership and $50 for student membership.
