    2021 Human Movement Variability Conference
    May 20-21, 2021

    The Human Movement Variability conference is an annual conference organized by the Center for Research in Human Movement Variability and Department of Biomechanics at the University of Nebraska at Omaha since its culmination in 2016. The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers and clinicians to learn and share the latest in human movement variability research. This meeting with coincide with the 2021 Great Plains Biomechanics Meeting.

    The keynote speaker is Dr. Jaap Van Dieen from VU Amsterdam. Jaap van DieŽn obtained his PhD from the ‘Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam’ in the Netherlands in 1993 and currently is professor of biomechanics and department head at the department of Human Movement Sciences of this university. He leads a research group focusing on the neuromechanics of ageing and musculoskeletal and movement disorders. His research is centered around three themes: 1) control of trunk posture and movement, 2) control of balance and gait stability and 3) the development of clinically applicable algorithms and instrumentation. The group focuses on experimental work based on movement analysis, inverse dynamics and electrophysiological measurements. Jaap van DieŽn has (co-) authored over 450 papers in international scientific journals.
    Promising Graduate Student Award and abstract submission open from
