Message from the President
With this article I would like to report on the activities of the ESB Council members (achievements, decisions, ongoing discussions…) and “highlights” during this first year of my term, as well as some challenges that lie ahead of us. It has become a rather extensive report – blame it on the Council members for being too active!
There may be several reasons why I prefer to update you at this stage…
7th World Congress of Biomechanics from 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. 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. Here, we indicate the most important dates.
Prizes and Honors Awards for WCB-ESB-2014 in Boston
