Save the dates for the SSB meeting 2019

This is the invitation for the SSB meeting 2019.

You are warmly invited to attend the 2019 SSB meeting, hosted by KTH BioMEx!


You and your group of colleagues, PhD students and post docs in Sweden, who research in areas in or related to biomechanics. Some of you are key industry and clinical contacts as well. Feel free to forward this email to anyone I might have missed.


20 March (approximately 10.00) to 21 March (approximately 15.00), including dinner and overnight at the conference center.


Skåvsjöholm Conference center/retreat:

Near Åkersberga, around 40 minutes commute from Stockholm, at a lovely setting near the sea.


The schedule is not finalized yet, but we plan to have oral and poster presentations. We will also most likely have one parallel session with focus workshops in certain areas.

Students and post docs are encouraged to bring a poster. We will have a best poster contest.



The KTH BioMEx Center will finance the conference again with ‘helpension’ (location, meals, room, etc.).  Your only costs will be for travel, provided you register (or change your registration) in time.



Please be specific about whether you will need a room or not.  (In the 2018 meeting, we paid for at least 10 empty rooms = money better spent elsewhere). Please also select which topics best fit your research (you can choose several).


Registration deadline:

Tuesday 12 February 2019



We started a society at the 2018 meeting. We will schedule an annual society meeting of about an hour during these two days. Information to follow in January.



If you have any questions about practical matters or registration, you can direct them to Kerstin Gustafsson (  If you have more conference-related questions during this interval, perhaps try Hanna Isaksson (


Hope to see you in March in the beautiful Stockholm archipelago setting!


Best wishes,

Lanie Gutierrez-Farewik
