Dear All,

I would like to draw your attention to the ISB's new Code of Conduct, which was discussed and passed at our recent council meeting. We expect our members to conduct themselves in a manner that is in keeping with the principles and integrity of our society. By accepting and retaining a role in ISB, members are covered by the Code of Conduct and affirm their commitment to uplold its principles and obligations.

Please take a moment to read this important document. 

Special thanks to Joe Hamill, Past-President of the ISB, for writing this document. 

ISB2021 in Stockholm will be taking place. Hopefully as a complete, physical meeting at which the whole international biomechanics community can finally meet, socialise, share science and create networks again. However, due to the present situation and uncertainty over its development the organising committee is planning on different scenarios. Perhaps most likely is a physical conference but with a lower attendance than would otherwise be expected. In the worst case the conference may need to be completely digital. We have plans for all scenarios and intend to have various levels of streaming regardless of which scenario eventuates.

ISB2021 in Stockholm will in any case be an international meeting with high scientific quality. We are not cancelling or postponing the congress.


After all of the conferences being postponed or cancelled in 2020, it is with pleasure that we can announce the abstract submission is now open for the ISB2021 Conference in Stockholm. Abstract submissions will be open until January 31 2021. So get cracking on those interesting research questions and drum up some abstracts!

Hope to see you all in person in 2021 :)

ISB Exec Committee.

The minutes of the 2019 General Assembly of the ISB will be considered at a virtual meeting of the ISB Council on July 21 2020.

ISB-EDC membership is now available at a reduced fee. Please visit the Subscriptions & Renewals page for details.

Dr. José Acero invited Andrea Hemmerich, EDC Project Officer, to present a seminar about the ISB-EDC Program at the 2nd International Congress of Applied and Sports Biomechanics (ICB) in Medellín, Colombia. Andrea connected live via webcast and answered questions on how the ISB could support biomechanics research in Latin America. The Colombian Association of Biomechanics was formed at this meeting; we are anticipating future affiliation of this society with the ISB. Thanks to Dr. Felipe Carpes for support and to Dr. Acero for organizing as well as English-Spanish translation throughout this presentation.
