NCSRR/OpenSim Visiting Scholars Program

Apply for the NCSRR/OpenSim Visiting Scholars Program

Summer 2018 at the National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research, Stanford University

The National Center for Simulation in Rehabilitation Research (NCSRR) based at Stanford University is now accepting applications for the 2018 Visiting Scholars Program. The program is a unique experience that fosters expertise and collaborations in biomechanical simulations for rehabilitation research. Up to four individuals will be chosen to visit the NCSRR at Stanford University for a 5-week period during the summer of 2018, from mid-July to mid-August. Each visiting scholar will be reimbursed for their travel and living expenses up to $8,000. During their visits, awardees will receive training and mentoring to help them reach their research goals. They will have the opportunity to participate in formal meetings, discussions with OpenSim experts, and brainstorming sessions with their fellow visiting scholars to advance their research and the OpenSim project. The Visiting Scholars Program is intended for faculty members and postdoctoral fellows with exceptional skills in biomechanics, simulation, and computer science, who will advance the field of movement science through the development of new software, biomechanical models, and outstanding research. Applications are due on February 2, 2018 at 5:00pm local time of the applicant organization. Read more and learn how to apply.

8th WCB – Dublin (08-12.07.2017)

Ireland Welcomes You to the 8th World Congress of Biomechanics

Dear Colleagues,

We are delighted to invite you to the 2018 World Congress of Biomechanics in Dublin, Ireland. The Congress will take place from 8 – 12 July 2018 in the Convention Centre Dublin, Ireland’s purpose built international conference and event venue situated in the very heart of Dublin city.

The World Congress of Biomechanics is held once every 4 years and is the premier meeting worldwide in its field. Many of the main international biomechanics societies will fold their 2018 annual meetings into the 2018 World Congress, hence you can expect to meet many of your colleagues in Dublin…. read in full

We look forward to meeting you in Dublin in 2018 for a truly memorable World Congress of Biomechanics.

Yours sincerely,
Daniel J. Kelly & Fergal J. O’Brien, Co-chairs WCB 2018

35th ISBS Conference Cologne (14-18.06.2017)



Dear Sport Biomechanists,

From June 14th to 18th the 35th International Conference on Biomechanics in Sports will be held in Cologne, Germany. We will meet on the campus of the German Sport University of Cologne to follow a world-class program with excellent keynote speakers and interesting up-to-date topics in five applied sessions. More than 300 oral and poster presentations will complete the scientific program (more information: www.isbs2017.org). Student incentives such as the mentoring program, a special student night as well as an attractive social program will allow for extensive scientific exchange and socialising.
