  • ESM 2014 Abstract Deadline Approaching, Keynote Speakers Confirmed!

    Dear Colleagues,

    The biennial Expert Scientific Meeting (ESM) will be held in Cambridge, MA July 2-6 2014 ( For more than 20 years the ESM meetings have provided researchers and scientists from various backgrounds the ability to join together to discuss dynamic load distribution measurement. This year’s meeting will be held in the Boston area directly before the WCB meeting.

    The deadline for abstract submission for ESM 2014 is February 28, 2014. Details and submission instructions may be found at

    Additionally, we are very excited to announce the confirmation of the following Keynote Speakers (
    · Dava Newman, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics and Engineering Systems, Boston, MA. Dr. Newman specializes in investigating human performance across the spectrum of gravity. She is an expert in the areas of extravehicular activity (EVA), biomechanics, energetics, and engineering design. Her finite element modeling work provided NASA the first three-dimensional representation of bone loss and loading applicable for long-duration missions.
    · Marian Hannan, Harvard Medical School, Institute for Aging Research, Hebrew SeniorLife, Boston, MA. Dr. Hannan is currently conducting research on risk factors for arthritis, foot disorders and biomechanics, hip fracture and osteoporosis. She is particularly interested in the effect of biomechanics upon physical function and the influence of body composition.
    · Georg Duda, Julius Wolff Institut at Charité – Universitätsmedizin, Berlin, Germany. Professor Duda focuses his research on the importance of biomechanics characteristics for cells and tissues of the human musculoskeletal systems. His group aims to reproduce natural regeneration of the musculoskeletal system by identifying and targeting the most effective approaches over a number of different scales (cell, tissue, organ, extremity).
    · Paolo Bonato, Spaulding Rehabilitation Institute, Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering, Boston, MA. Dr. Bonato’s research work is focused on the development of rehabilitation technologies with special emphasis on wearable systems and robotics.

    We look forward to seeing you at ESM2014
