Date, Time and Venue: Details will be posted soon.

Symposium Details & Purpose: The goal of the session 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.

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.

With the support of the De Luca Foundation, MA (USA): 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. It provides an annual award, the Delsys Prize; and the Emerging Scientist Award administered by the International Society of Biomechanics. See https://www.delucafoundation.org

De Luca Foundation “Motor Control” Student Travel Awards: Eight travel awards have been offered by the De Luca Foundation to the best abstracts submitted for the motor control session. The awards consist of an amount of US $ 500. Congratulations to the winners!

Registration and Fee: Attendance is free for all WCB attendees. Registration to the WCB conference is required. (see the WCB 2018 website.)
