Persons or groups interested in organizing the XXVII Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics in 2019 are invited to prepare and submit a formal proposal to the ISB Executive Council. Written proposals are due by April 1st, 2016. Like all years, the 2019 congress will be a landmark event for the ISB; bids should propose to organize an event that reflects the mission and goals of the society.
Candidates from shortlisted bids will be invited to present their proposal to the ISB Executive Council at their 2016 meeting on August 1 and 2, 2016, just prior to the start of the American Society of Biomechanics meeting in Raleigh, North Carolina. The final decision will be made during this meeting through a vote by the Executive Council.
As President-Elect of the ISB, I will be coordinating the bidding process. If you are interested in applying, please contact me and I will be happy to provide guidance and detailed additional information on proposal preparation.
