6th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics

We are pleased to announce that the 6th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics will be held in Brisbane (Australia) on July 25th-26th 2017, in conjunction with the XXVI Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB).

Date, Time and Venue: Tuesday July 26th and Wednesday July 26th 2017. Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Center, Cnr Merivale & Glenelg Streets, South Bank, Brisbane, Queensland (Australia)

Symposium Details & Purpose: The goal of the Symposium is to bring together established researchers and junior investigators with an interest in Motor Control and Biomechanics, and discuss Motor Control concepts in Biomechanics for a wide range of applications including Robotics, Rehabilitation, Kinesiology, Modeling, Sport Science, and more.

Abstract submission

Abstract submission for oral and poster presentation for the Symposium is now open on the ISB 2017 website! Submit your abstract for the presentation type “Oral/Poster Presentation for the Motor Control Working Group (MC)”. For instructions on abstract submission, see here.

Submit Abstract

Deadline: 13 January 2017


An award of US $ 500 is available to students and researchers who submit their work to the symposium. The award is kindly sponsored by the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB), and will be assigned based on the scientific quality of the work presented. Make sure to submit your abstract to the Motor Control Group to be eligible for the award!

Who Should Attend: Researchers and students with an interest in Biomechanics and Motor Control should attend. Participants will have the opportunity to discover the latest developments in these fields and discuss with experienced investigators.

Registration and Fee: Attendance is free for all ISB attendees. Registration is open on the ISB 2017 website.

De Luca Foundation, MA (USA): The Symposium is kindly sponsored by the De Luca Foundation. The De Luca Foundation was established by Professor Carlo J. De Luca. The goal of the foundation is to recognize researchers in the field of Electromyography and Biomechanics with emphasis on Motor Control.
