The symposium featured internationally distinguished researchers in the field of Motor Control and Biomechanics (see flyer for details), oral and poster presentations from abstract submissions.

Invited Speakers


Carlo J. De Luca Memorial Session

A special memorial session to honor the lifelong contributions of Professor Carlo J. De Luca, founder of the Motor Control Group, to the fields of Motor Control, Biomechanics, and Human Movement Sciences closed the symposium. The session included contributions from Dr. William Z. Rymer (Shirley Ryan Ability Lab, USA), Dr. Serge Roy (Delsys Inc. & Boston University, USA), and Dr. Roberto Merletti (Politecnico di Torino, Italy)

For more information on the scientific contributions of Prof. De Luca and his commitment to fostering research and innovation in Electromyography, Motor Control, and Human Movement Sciences, please visit www.delucafoundation.org/about/carlo


1st Motor Control Group Student Award

Congratulations to Miss Gwenllian F. Tawy, doctoral student in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow (UK), who was awarded the 2017 Motor Control Group Student Award for her abstract submission titled: “Investigating gait variability and motor control in knee osteoarthritis”.

This is the first edition of the Motor Control Group Student Award sponsored by ISB. The 500 US $ award aims at encouraging the participation of students and young investigators in Motor Control research.


Many thanks to all of the speakers and attendees for making the 6th Symposium of Motor Control in Biomechanics a success.

We look forward to seeing you at WCB 2018 and ACSM 2018!
