Message from the President
The ESB congress is the heart of the ESB community. This has been the case for more than thirty years now – thirty-four to be precise – and it is clear that we want to keep it this way.
19th Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics 25-28th August, Patras Greece
The European Society of Biomechanics cordially invites you to attend the 19th Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics (ESB) which will be held in Patras, a beautiful commercial hub located in northern Peloponnese.The deadline for the abstract submission is January 31st, 2013.
One way in which ESB promotes excellence in Biomechanics is by recognition of outstanding members with prestigious awards given at the ESB Congress: Huiskes Medal for Biomechanics, ESB Clinical Biomechanics Award, Best Doctoral Thesis in Biomechanics, ESB Student Awards, ESB Poster Award, ESB Travel Awards,…
2nd Meeting of the Spanish National Chapter
The second Meeting of the Spanish National Chapter will be held in Seville on 25th October 2012 at the ETS Ingenieros.

Historical Perspective Article: Richard Scherb (Orthopaedic Surgeon and Muscle Physiologist) by Hilaire Jacob et al.
We are pleased to introduce a new section in the newsletter where our eminent senior members contribute review or historical perspectives article. We are conscious that some of the key early events and advances in Biomechanics are no longer discussed and the next generation of biomechanicians may miss out on this wealth of knowledge and expertise. We will ask Huiskes Medal winners for their contributions from our Honorary and senior members.
On March 27th, 2012, the European Parliament hosted an Expert Policy Workshop on Biomedical Engineering in collaboration with EAMBES. The clear outcome of the workshop was that Biomedical Engineering needs a formal recognition at the EU level.
A student’s tale of the ESB 2012 conference in Lisbon
The 18th Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics was held at the Technical University of Lisbon in Portugal and was a great meeting of biomechanical minds.
The membership of the European Society of Biomechanics is steadily increasing. Total membership is now 855. This includes 580 active members, 227 student members, 36 senior members, 7 honorary members, 5 corporate members.
As incoming treasurer, I am asked a great number of questions that are not easy to answer, but the one overriding issue that is currently causing concern with the ESB is how exactly the payment of membership should work now that we have annual congresses.
