Registration now open: Workshop on “Biomarkers arising from nonlinear analysis of movement variability”
July 3-6, 2023, ETH Zurich, Switzerland
The Laboratory for Movement Biomechanics (LMB – ETH Zurich) together with the Center for Research in Human Movement Variability (MOVCENTR – UNO Omaha) is organizing a 4-day workshop converging experts in the field for deeper discussions and future international level efforts and collaboration for development and validation of biomarkers arising from nonlinear analysis of movement variability. During the workshop, participants will learn about the underlying mathematics and real-world applications of latest techniques and tools for assessment of various nonlinear characteristics: Complexity, Divergence, Regularity and Recurrences in human movement research. The programme also includes keynotes from world leading experts, think-tank sessions to share opportunities and challenges for fundamental investigations in nonlinear analysis of movement variability and Consult with Experts sessions to meet one-to-one with experts to discuss and plan your research journey with non-linear analysis tools.
Participants with varied backgrounds (research scientists, clinicians, educators, and students) are welcome since we include a strong practical component with class discussions and hands-on practice to facilitate understanding of the methods. More info and registration here:
7th International Autumn School on Movement Science (04-06.10.2023)
We are happy to announce that after a break due to the corona constraints, our International Autumn School for Movement Science is taking place again this year. Being a part of the Berlin School of Movement Science, the Autumn School in Berlin aims at giving PhD students an opportunity to establish contact with outstanding researchers invited to give a talk at the School and to learn more about state-of-the-art human movement research. The Autumn School will be held in Berlin from the 4th to 6th of October 2023.
This year, the scientific program will include three main topics:
Perturbed and unperturbed locomotion (4th October):
Kevin De Pauw (Vrije Universiteit Brussel)
André Seyfarth (Technische Universität Darmstadt)
Thomas Roberts (Brown University)
Jaap van Dieën (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam)
Muscle and tendon: mechanics and adaptation (5th October):
Benedicte Vanwanseele (Katholieke Universiteit Leuven)
Daniel Hahn (Ruhr-Universität Bochum)
Chavaunne Thorpe (Royal Veterinary College London)
Jess Gerrit Snedeker (Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich)
Neural control of movement (6th October):
Francois Hug (Université Côte d’Azur)
Thorsten Stein (Karlsruher Institut für Technologie)
Natalie Mrachacz-Kersting (Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg)
Klaus Gramann (Technische Universität Berlin)
The participation at the Autumn School is free.
