Dear Colleagues

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 16th Congress of the European
Society of Biomechanics, to be held July 6th - 9th, 2008 in Lucerne,

Drawing on the continuing success of previous meetings of the ESB, our goal
is to strengthen the scientific basis of our traditional core topics while
diversifying to include emerging research areas. Plenary talks and
mini-symposia are planned to address novel fields in biomechanics research,
and to provide valuable insight into the ever-increasing importance of
collaborative research, interdisciplinary programs, EU funding opportunities
and biomechanical education programs. The success story of the MedTech
industry within Switzerland will be highlighted to bring you practical
examples of translation research.

Lucerne is ideally situated in the centre of Switzerland, in the foothills
of the Alps. The conference will be held in the recently constructed Culture
and Convention Centre, located directly on the shores of Lake Lucerne. These
facilities will offer you a modern conference experience in the environment
of a true architectural masterpiece. Lucerne is easily reached by all major
transportation methods, and the city itself is compact and

Further details about the conference, scientific topics and the abstract
