The 2nd Conference of the South African Society of Biomechanics (SASB) will be held under the banner of the International Festival of Sports, Exercise and Medicine Conference (IFSEMC) in Pretoria, South Africa from the 29th of September to the 2nd of October 2022. This event is co-hosted by SASB and the Biokinetics Association of South Africa (BASA), the South African Sports Medicine Association (SASMA), and Physical Activity, Sport and Health for Development in Africa (PASHDA).

This multidisciplinary event is likely to be the largest of its kind on the African continent.
