In the light of all the recent uncertainties and worries that COVID-19 brought upon us, also with respect to global travel (policies), we had long discussions about how to proceed with the organization of our Musculoskeletal System Symposium 2020. Although our symposium is nowhere anywhere close to the Olympics, their decision to postpone the games to 2021 is somewhat reassuring that we should do the same and postpone our meeting to next year. We are very sad to do so, because we, together with all of you, and many people, who showed already great interest to join the symposium, were so excited about the symposium. The new dates for the Musculoskeletal System Symposium 2021 are July 20-22, 2021!
On June 1, 2019, the University of Stuttgart established the new Institute for Modelling and Simulation of Biomechanical Systems. We would lik to take this occasion to invite you to Stuttgart for a “Musculoskeletal System Symposium”. The goal is to bring together young and renowned international researchers to discuss and
improve our understanding of the musculoskeletal system as a whole. The symposium will take place from July 16 – 18, 2020. We are all looking forward to welcoming you in Stuttgart.
