BOOM Episode 12 is live! Check out the link to listen to Joe Hamill, current International Society of Biomechanics President, talk about his vision for making ISB "truly international". Hear about why he values ISB as a top tier biomechanics society, including it's emphasis on the students.

Our ISB Student Representative, Melissa Boswell, has put together a great new initiative to encourage community engagement and support for students via a biomechanics podcast, called Biomechanics On Our Minds (BOOM!). Visit the BOOM podcast site and have a listen!

 

Applications will soon be open (March 1 - March 30) for the Developing Countries Grant Competition (DCGC).

DCGC 2019 will award five projects from EDC groups in biomechanics with the purpose to incentive innovative and collaborative activities to develop biomechanics in EDC regions.

Dear Friends in the International Society of Biomechanics,

We are thrilled to announce the fourth National Biomechanics Day on April 10, 2019. With your participation NBD 2019 will introduce Biomechanics to an incredible number of high school students around the world. Please see the attached announcement about registering for NBD 2019 or please go directly HERE to register. Of course, you can hold your NBD event on any Spring or Summer day if April 10 does not work for you.

NBD has grown each year because of your enthusiastic participation. We now have the potential to revolutionize the impact of Biomechanics on society by showing our science in this synchronized, celebratory manner to thousands and thousands of young people. Please help us grow Biomechanics through our unique, worldwide and fun Biomechanics extravaganza. Through our unified outreach, we will make Biomechanics the 21st century’s Breakthrough Science.

Sincerely and with great enthusiasm,

Paul DeVita

Director, Biomechanics Laboratory and

Leroy T. Walker Distinguished Professor of Kinesiology

East Carolina University

The TGCS 2019 website is now live!

TGCS 2019 is an upcoming symposium organized by International Society of Biomechanics members and its technical group partners that focuses on computer simulation in biomechanics. Keynote speakers include Wendy Murray (Northwestern University) and Ilse Jonkers (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven). The meeting will take place in beautiful Canmore, Canada from 28 to 30 July 2019. 

Don't miss the latest symposium news and help us with preliminary plans.

The December edition of ISB NOW is available here. Note that this edition and future editions will be available on the through the main ISB website, so please update your Bookmarks to make sure you don't miss out!

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

2015 General Assembly Minutes

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.

The Call for Applications for the EDC Congress Travel Grant in order to attend the XXV ISB Congress in Glasgow, Scotland, is now open. Please see the Application Instructions below for further details.

This a reminder that the 7th World Congress of Biomechanics is being held in Boston, USA, from July 6-11. WCB is an international meeting held once every four years, rotating among Europe, Asia and the Americas. The 7th WCB will once again bring together bioengineers, biomechanists, life scientists and medical researchers from around the world for 5 days of in-depth discussions and presentations. The ISB has major role at the WCB and and there are number ISB based sessions, including the ISB Motor Control I and II, Footwear-Force, Footwear-Muscle, Footwear-Move, Footwear-Foot, and the ISB Presidential Symposiums. Make sure you are attending WCB2014 and also attend all the ISB Session.
