Call for Papers



Dear friends and colleagues:

We are going have the symposium "Postural control in the workplace" as a special session in the International Society of Biomechanics XXI Congress, July 1-5, 2007, in Taipei, Taiwan (ISB2007). Our goal is to provide an open forum for experts around the world to present, discuss, and argue their latest findings in the field of occupational biomechanics and exchange the research ideas. The covered topics of this special symposium will focus on the biomechanics of working posture and movement. It will include all aspects related to the kinematic and kinetic investigations of manual materials handling tasks, hand tool use, and low intensity repetitive tasks such as assembly work and computer work. In addition, it will include balance control in standing and walking at work.


The abstract can be e-mailed directly to the program organizers listed below. For abstract preparation, please refer to the ISB2007 conference website at http://www.isb2007.org The deadline for abstract submission is January 15, 2007. Notification of acceptance will be by March 15, 2007.
