International Society of Biomechanics
Gold sponsor


We would like to thank all the attendees to our latest symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics, which was hosted in conjunction with the XIX Congress of the Brazilian Society of Biomechanics (XI CBB), the XI Applied Neuromechanics Symposium, and the III Latin-American Meeting of Biomechanics.

The symposium featured internationally distinguished researchers in the field of Motor Control and Biomechanics in two sessions:


  • Dr. Matt Jordan, University of Calgary (Canada). “The Hamstring Conundrum: A Data-Informed Approach to Graft-Specific Rehabilitation after ACL-Reconstruction:
  • Dr. Daniela Vaz, Federal University of Minas Gerais – UFMG (Brazil). “The Biomechanical Body in Context: Challenges for an Ecological Understanding of Functioning”
  • Dr. Lilian Teresa Bucken Gobbi, São Paulo State University (Brazil). “Gait rehabilitation in Parkinsons Disease: A Motor Control Perspective”

High-Performance Sports

  • Dr. Jill L McNitt-Gray, University of Southern California (USA). “Control and Dynamics of Human Movement in Context”
  • Dr. Michael Hiley, Loughborough University (UK). “How do Gymnasts modify Technique in a Task with Uncertain Initial Conditions”
  • Dr. Herbert Ugrinowitsch, Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais (Brazil). “Motor Control and Biomechanics: Training to Adaptation in Open Sports Motor Skills”

We would like to thank the organizers of CBB 2021, in particular Prof. Dr. André Gustavo Pereira de Andrade and Prof. Dr. Felipe Pivetta Carpes, for this wonderful opportunity.

We would also like to thank all the attendees to our past meetings at the 2021 ISB Congress and iFAB Congress, as well as the ISB for their continuous support.
