ESB 2017 will take place at the Higher Technical School of Engineering of the University of Seville, from the 2nd to the 5th of July 2017.

Plenary lectures will be delivered by Prof. Ellen Kuhl (Stanford University), Dr. Walter Herzog (University Of Calgary) and Prof. José Manuel García-Aznar (University Of Zaragoza).

Seville is the scent of orange trees under blue skies, the river, shops and streets, the barrios, the outlying areas, la Vega, el Aljarafe, las Marismas, la Campiña, the Southern and Northern Sierras, and Estepa.

We look forward to welcome you in Seville in 2017!

 

 

22nd Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics

 

ESB 2016 will take place at the Cité des Congrès of Lyon, France, from the 10th to 13th of July 2016 and is jointly organized by the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB) and the Société de Biomécanique (SB).

Two anniversaries will be celebrated at the occasion of ESB 2016. The ESB is a European society founded in 1976 and will celebrate its 40th anniversary in 2016. The SB is an international society which organizes a congress every year gathering delegates mostly from French speaking countries (Belgium, Canada, France, Switzerland…). The first conference was organized in Lyon in 1976. So the SB will celebrate the 40th anniversary of its annual conference in 2016.

The congress will take place in Lyon which is a very attractive city. Among numerous examples, Lyon is the place where Auguste and Louis Lumière invented the “Cinématographe” in 1895. Cité des Congrès is a modern and recently built venue offering the latest state-of–the-art equipment.

21st Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics

5 – 8 JULY 2015

Clarion Congress Hotel Prague****, Prague 9 – Vysočany, Czech Republic

 

The 21st Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics is held at Clarion Congress Hotel Prague, Czech Republic, from 5 to 8 July 2015. The location of the venue is just 10 minutes by metro from the historical center. Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, lies in the heart of Europe and ranks amongst the most impressive historical cities in the world.

The congress programme consists of a precourse on the first day, followed by 3 days of scientific sessions.

The precourses are: Short Course on Tissue Engineering, Combined experimental and modelling approach to clinical applications, Evaluation of implant stability, Custom made implants design and clinical application .

Plenary lectures will be delivered by Jacob Klein (Weizmann Institute of Science), Jeffrey A. Weiss (University of Utah) and Richard M Hall (University of Leeds).

The scientific programme is accompanied by a social programme, which cannot be missed. The most remarkable will be the “Night in town”, aimed at young colleagues, and the Congress Dinner, which will allow you to enjoy the Prague’s picturesque atmosphere.

Please find out more information about the congress and scientific programme at http://www.esbiomech2015.org.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Prague next year!

7th World Congress on Biomechanics

7th World Congress of Biomechanics7th World Congress on Biomechanics
July 6 – 11, 2014, Boston, USA

The World Congress of Biomechanics is an international meeting held once every four years, rotating among Europe, Asia and the Americas.  This, the 7th WCB, will once again bring together engineers, scientists from various disciplines including biology, physics, mathematics, computer science, chemistry and various clinical specialties. Applications range from basic biology to medical devices to the latest technologies.  Researchers, engineers from industry, medical doctors, academics, and students are all welcome.  Vendor exhibitions will highlight the latest technologies, publications, and medical devices.

The ESB strongly supports the WCB, by its representation on the organising committee, and the ESB community is strongly integrated, with European scientists participating as keynote lecturers,  track and session chairs for the conference. The WCB aims to offer nearly 400 individual scientific sessions, therefore the congress provides a unique opportunity to experience the full breadth and depth of global biomechanics research. Traditional ESB activities will be given a specific focus at the congress, with plenary sessions dedicated to our awards program and our bi-annual General Assembly. Boston is convenient to reach from all major European airports and offers a unique venue for the WCB. We hope to see a strong support from the European biomechanics community and look forward to a stimulating 5 days of in-depth discussions and presentations.

WCB REGISTRATION: When you register for WCB remember to state that you are a member of the European Society of Biomechanics. Select European Society of Biomechanics from the dropdown menu on the section of the form that asks ‘Primary Professional Society Affiliation’.  WCB only has one registration fee for all participants, regardless of any membership. For that reason, ESB is not able to offer any discount on the registration fee. The good news is that for ESB members who participate to the congress and who are in good standing (i.e. they have already paid their membership for 2014, either by having participated to ESB2013 in Patras, or by paying the membership fee by the end of this year), the membership fee up to the end of 2015 will be included in the congress registration fee.

Important dates:

November 15, 2013 – January 29, 2014 (Extended!)
Online abstract submission is open. Podium Presentations will be limited, so please submit early to the continuous review process.

Last date for notification of acceptance for Podium or Poster  Presentation.

 

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
