The ESB invites proposals for the organization of its annual congress in 2025. If you would like to host and organize the 2025 ESB congress and wish to prepare and submit a bid, please read the conference rules.
The deadline for bid submission (first step) to organize the ESB 2025 is 15 December 2021.
We are pleased to share some news about the upcoming The ESB2021 congress, that will be an online event.
Face-to-face meeting is not possible, and we’ll miss friendly discussions, gathering, social dinner, and being in company with friends and colleagues. However, the local organisers are working hard to make this event a rewarding experience.
In addition to scientific parallel sessions, virtual student events, virtual boots for sponsors, other online initiatives, like mentoring sessions, are being to be prepared.
Furthermore, it is our intention is to take advantage of this format to maintain interaction between participants not only in the 3 days of the congress, but also in the post-congress period; to this purpose, recording of all presentations will be available for streaming after the congress.

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.
We look forward to welcome you in Lyon in 2016!
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.
