ESBiomech24 Congress in Edinburgh

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.

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

18th Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics

Lisbon Conference ESB2012
The 18th Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics
will take place in Lisbon, Portugal on 1st to 4th July 2012.

Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is a beautiful, historic city on the Atlantic Ocean. Lisbon has been a point of cultural interchange and encounter for many centuries for visitors and people coming from all over the world.
