    2021 Great Plains Biomechanics Meeting
    May 20-21, 2021

    The Great Plains Biomechanics Conference will coincide with the Human Movement Variability conference in 2021. The goal of this conference is to provide a student-centered meeting where the growing field of biomechanics is explored through poster and podium sessions and a keynote speaker. The target demographic includes students, faculty, and clinicians.

    The keynote speaker for this meeting is Dr. Andre Seyfarth from the Technical University of Darmstadt. Andre Seyfarth received his PhD from University of Jena, Germany in 2000 and is currently a Professor for Sports Biomechanics as well as the Director of the Lauflabor Locomotion Lab at TU Darmstadt, Germany. He has been involved in teaching biomechanics and sports sciences since 1995. His research combines three levels of exploration of human and animal movement: experimental, computer simulation and robot demonstration. As a new research field passive and active prostheses/orthoses are used to investigate human locomotion. The main focus is on deriving concepts for better analyzing and explaining the biological foundations of legged locomotion.
    Promising Graduate Student Award and abstract submission open from
