This is a unique session for sport biomechanists, injury biomechanists, and injury prevention researchers that embrace a multiscale approaches to:
· investigate the determinants of sporting activities;
· enhance sport performance;
· identify and predict injury mechanisms.

Research including a combination of experimental in vivo and in vitro studies, and in silico analyses is welcome for submission to this session. This session is a great opportunity to gather biomechanists interested in the analysis of sport and sport injury, with the final aim of sharing and discussing recently developed multiscale and modelling methodologies.

We hope to see you in Dublin!
