    The 28th International Society of Biomechanics in Sports Conference will be
    hosted by Northern Michigan University (NMU) in Marquette, MI USA. NMU is
    located in a stunning environment on the shore of the world's largest
    freshwater lake, Lake Superior. Surrounded by miles of forests and mountains
