Dear colleagues and friends!
There are now less than two weeks remaining before the opening of the XXVIII Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics from the 25 – 29 July. It is still possible to register so please take the opportunity to participate in this exciting scientific event! The congress will start with the traditional educational tutorials with the highly relevant and stimulating topics of wearable sensors, imaging and modelling, deep learning and optimal control in biomechanics: https://isb2021.com/program/tutorials/ Don’t forget to register for these separately when you register for the congress. We are also are extremely proud to have attracted such an eminent list of Award and Keynote lecturers: https://isb2021.com/speakers/. In order to promote discussion and insight into some cutting edge and controversial issues in biomechanics we have a strong focus on five panel debates with world experts on the topics: the distribution problem in biomechanics and motor control; markerless vs marker motion capture; scientific peer review; biorobotics; computational approaches on studying locomotion disorders. Please visit here to find details concerning these debates and the internationally renowned biomechanists leading them: https://isb2021.com/program/debates/ Special sessions have been organised by the ISB Hand and Wrist Biomechanics International and Motor Control Technical Groups and also one on Computer Simulation.
The congress will also include student social events, student mentoring possibilities and Advancing Women in Biomechanics sessions. Finally a new format is being explored for exposing the fantastic sponsors, whom, despite the difficulties experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic have remained loyal to ISB. The congress sponsor (Qualisys) and the major sponsors (Vicon and Xsens) will have special sessions in which to present their companies to all delegates – we are sure this will be a new level of digital exposure for congress sponsors!
Every effort has been made to make the congress as attractive as possible in the digital format. We have staggered the days so that material is available to different time zones on different days, all oral and plenary presentations will be live so that a discussion is possible and all material will be recorded and available to registered delegates for 30 days after the congress.
Many generous scientific awards will be presented including two new ISB awards: the Jaqueline Perry Emerging Female Scientist Award and the World Athletics Award for Biomechanics.
ISB2021 will be really exciting and promises an exceptional level of scientific content! We are happy to welcome you to ISB2021, the most gender equal ISB congress ever. To register please visit here: https://isb2021.com/registration/ The last date to register through the congress homepage is Friday 23 July. Registrations after that date must be done by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org
We are looking forward to meet you at ISB2021!
