  3. Choose Locomotion and Human Movement as category (congress track)
  4. Choose Motor Control as subcategory (session)
  5. If you wish to be considered for the De Luca Foundation “Motor Control” Student Travel Award, select this award from the list of available Student Travel Bursaries.

De Luca Foundation “Motor Control” Student Travel Awards: Eight travel awards will be 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. Guidelines can be found here.

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 WCB attendees. Registration is open on the WCB 2018 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. It provides an annual award, the Delsys Prize; and the Emerging Scientist Award administered by the International Society of Biomechanics.
