Thank you to all the attendees of the 6th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics, and to all who submitted an abstract for the symposium.

3 August 2017

The event was held on Tuesday and Wednesday July 25th-26th 2017 during the Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) in Brisbane, Australia.

The symposium featured internationally distinguished researchers in the field of Motor Control and Biomechanics (see flyer for details), oral and poster presentations from abstract submissions.

Invited Speakers

  • Dr. Glen Lichtwark (University of Queensland, Australia) “The potential influence of tendon compliance on sensory feedback from lower limb muscles”
  • Dr. Martina Mancini (Oregon Health and Science University, USA) “Insights into freezing of gait from wearable sensors”
  • Dr. John H. Challis (Pennsylvania State University, USA) “Individual muscle forces and musculo-skeletal models of human movement”
  • Dr. Fuminari Kaneko (Sapporo Medical University, Japan) “Exposure to a unique visual stimulus with kinesthetic sensation results in synchronized reciprocally induced spontaneous muscular recruitment”

Many thanks to all of the speakers and attendees for making the 6th Symposium of Motor Control in Biomechanics a success.

The next symposia on Motor Control in Biomechanics are currently being planned for:

  • the 2018 World Congress of Biomechanics (WCB) in Dublin, Ireland, 8th-12th July 2018
  • the 2018 Annual Congress of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) in Minneapolis, USA, May 29th-June 2nd 2018

Check our website in the following months for updates.

We look forward to seeing you at WCB 2018 and ACSM 2018!
