We are very pleased to announce that the 1st ISB Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics organized by the new Motor Control Seed Group of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) has been a great success.

The ISB Symposium was held on July 8th 2014 during the 7th World Congress of Biomechanics (WCB) in Boston, USA. The session was organized by Professor Carlo J. De Luca (Boston University, USA) and Professor Philip Rowe (University of Strathclyde, UK) (see here for details). It featured a keynote Lecture by Professor Zev Rymer from the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago and the following internationally distinguished researchers:

Professor Neville Hogan (MIT, USA)
Professor Walter Herzog (University of Calgary, Canada)
Professor David Lloyd (Griffith Health Institute, Australia)
Professor Steven Robinovitch (Simon Fraser University, Canada)
Professor Thomas Buchanan (University of Delaware, USA)
Professor Marco Santello (Arizona State University, USA)
Professor Paola Contessa (Boston University, USA)
Professor Evangelos Christou (University of Florida, USA)

The wide interest in the symposium was evident by the numerous attendees that included over 400 researchers and students (ISB NOW newsletter).

We are also pleased to announce that the next ISB Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics is currently being planned for the upcoming XXVth Congress of ISB in Glasgow, Scotland, July 12-16, 2015.

Check the ISB 2015 webpage for updates and we look forward to seeing you in Glasgow!

Thank you,
