ESBiomech24 Congress in Edinburgh

19th Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics

ESB Congress in Patras 2013

On behalf of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB), we are pleased to announce that the 19th Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB2013) will be held at the Conference and Cultural Centre of the University of Patras, Greece, between 25-28 August 2013. The main objective of the congress is to bring together researchers and practitioners in biomechanics to stimulate and promote research on all core topics of biomechanics, including emerging research areas. Based on the previous Congresses, we believe that ESB2013 will have a strong impact on the development of biomechanics research work, identifying emerging areas of research and promoting the collaboration between its participants.

We would like to invite you to attend the congress in Patras and participate in its scientific activities. We look forward to welcome you at the ESB2013.

Yours Sincerely, Prof. Yannis Missirlis, Conference Chairman
