Many thanks to all the speakers and over 200+ attendees for making the 10th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics a great success. The symposium was held on August 2nd, 2019 during the 2019 Meeting of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) and American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) in Calgary, Canada (see flyer for details).

Invited Speakers

  • Dr. Lena Ting, Emory University and Georgia Institute of Technology (USA). History-dependent muscle forces for sensing and moving in normal and impaired movement.
  • Dr. Francisco Valero-Cuevas, University of Southern California (USA). Feasibility theory: an integrative approach to neuromuscular control.
  • Dr. Julia T. Choi, University of Massachusetts Amherst (USA). Using intramuscular coherence to assess cortical contribution to locomotor adaptation.
  • Dr. Emma Hodson-Tole, Manchester Metropolitan University (UK). Evaluating the structure of skeletal muscle excitation and co-ordination to understand performance limits during cycling in humans.
  • Dr. Yasuo Kawakami, Waseda University (Japan). Musculotendinous mechanics for exercise performance enhancement: importance of motor control.


A special thank-you to ISB for their continuous support and to the De Luca Foundation (DLF) for their assistance.

More event are currently being planned for 2020. Check our website for all news and event updates.
