The XXVIII Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics is rapidly approaching. It will be the first virtual conference in the history of the ISB and will be held from July 25-29, 2021, with digital headquarters in Stockholm, Sweden.
We would like to invite you to take part in ISB2021!
An impressive number of abstracts were submitted, which provides a fantastic base for many high quality, stimulating scientific sessions. We are proud to present world class keynote lectures including the prestigious Wartenweiler Award lecture by Dr. Susan Margulies and the lecture by Muybridge Award winner Dr. Scott Delp. A series of panel debates will be held every day highlighting and disseminating current controversial issues in biomechanics. The additional exciting program also includes educational tutorials on the first day, opportunities for social interaction for delegates, student mentoring possibilities, and innovative sessions for sponsoring companies. Please visit the congress homepage for more details concerning the content and program and speakers: https://isb2021.com/ We are confident that our congress will set new standards for gender equality.
The four days of scientific presentations will be staggered timewise to provide the best possibilities for delegates from different time zones to attend. Similarly, the greatest effort is being made to provide presenters with time slots suitable for their timezone, to facilitate live presentations by all presenters. All presentations will be recorded and made available to delegates for a certain time after the congress. Besides the scientific program, we will provide many possibilities for personal interaction with colleagues and friends. We aim to set an impressive benchmark for future digital conferences.
Registration for ISB2021 has now opened on the conference website: https://isb2021.com/registration/. Due to the fantastic support from sponsors and the host universities, we have been able to keep the registration fees low, with especially attractive rates for ISB members, students and delegates from economically developing countries.

We are looking forward to meet you at ISB2021!
