12th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics at Virtual ISB 2021

July 25th - July 29th

We are pleased to announce that the 12th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics will be held in conjunction with the International Society of Biomechanics Meeting (ISB 2021).

Date, Time and Venue: July 25th- July 29th. 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.

With the support of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB): Founded at Penn State University on August 30, 1973 to promote the study of all areas of biomechanics at the international level. The ISB promotes and supports international contacts amongst scientists, the dissemination of knowledge, and the activities of national organizations in the field of biomechanics.

Schedule: Invited talks will be followed by oral presentations. Program includes 5 oral sessions:

  • Motor Control in Impaired Populations
  • Motor Control in Sport
  • Upper Limb Motor Control
  • Motor Control in Gait
  • Motor Control
