13th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics at Virtual CBB 2021

 September 17th, 17:00 pm – 20:00 pm GMT-3.

We are pleased to announce that the 13th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics will be held in conjunction with the XIX Congress of the Brazilian Society of Biomechanics (CBB), the IX Neuromechanics Symposium, and the III Latin-American Meeting of Biomechanics.

Date, Time and Venue: September 17th, 17:00 pm – 20:00 pm GMT-3. Virtual event.

Symposium Details and 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.

Registration & Fee

Free for CBB congress participants.
