The XVI International Symposium on Computer Simulation in Biomechanics will be held July 20th-22nd 2017, the weekend leading up to ISB 2017, in the Gold Coast, Australia.

TGCS Goals
  • Joining together ISB members particularly involved in computer simulation.
  • Providing a forum for extensive exchange of information related to new computer simulation approaches in biomechanics (methods, software, hardware and applications).
  • Formulating standardized terminology of computer simulation in biomechanics.

The symposium will be a scientific and technical meeting for investigators and students in all areas of computer simulation in biomechanics, especially human movement, motor control, and robotics related to biomechanics.
