The National Biomechanics Day in 2017 was a huge success, with >7,000 high school students attending biomechanics labs all over the world. Well done to Paul DeVita, the founder of NBD, for pulling this together.

The third National Biomechanics Day will be held on April 11, 2018, and we encourage biomechanists around the globe to get together and celebrate our science by hosting an event in your local community. You can register your interest in hosting an event here.

The minutes of the 2015 General Assembly of the ISB will be considered at the General Assembly in Brisbane on Thursday 27 July 2017.

The 8th World Congress of Biomechanics will be held in Dublin, 8-12 July 2018, and the International Society of Biomechanics will be well represented at the meeting. Following on from our successful ISB Congress, we hope to see many ISB members at the world congress next year. Our President-Elect, Professor Tony Arndt will be giving the ISB Sponsored Plenary and past president, Prof Julie Steele will also be giving a Plenary talk. 

The call for abstracts to the WCB is now open and abstract submissions close Dec 19. We hope to see a good turnout of ISB members in Dublin next year.

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.
