Welcome to ISB Glasgow!
2015 was a very special year for Glasgow, Scotland to host the 25th Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB), which is the first time for the United Kingdom. It was held on July 12 to 16 at Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC). It was also celebrated alongside the 50th Birthday of the Bioengineering Unit within the BME department here at Strathclyde in which we also welcome the members of the “Strathclyde Mafia”.
The ISB Glasgow 2015 was organized by Professor Philip Rowe, Dr. Phil Riches, and Dr. Andrew J. Murphy, all from the University of Strathclyde. One of our personal objectives during this congress was to promote the growing relationship between biomechanics and motor control. These subject matters were featured in our unusual keynote speeches that aimed to spark conversation and debate throughout the Congress.
Our pairs of keynotes speakers provided essential information in widening the understanding of motor control and biomechanics. Some of the most trusted researchers and scientists in the field of biomechanics were Carlo De Luca, Dario Farina, Laurence Cheze, Claudia Mazza, Gert-Peter Brüggemann, Sharon Dixon, Georg Bergmann, Jonathan Jeffers, Peter Walker, Mark Taylor, Gerard Ateshian, Hazel Screen, Saeed Shirazi-Adl and Jude Meakin. They discussed about Motor Control, Measurement Technology, Sport, Hip Biomechanics, Knee Biomechanics, Tissue Biomechanics, and Spine Biomechanics, among others.
The 25th Congress was a huge success being an effective outlet for scientists and researchers across the globe to share and expand our understanding with biomechanics. Now, the International Society of Biomechanics has continued traveling the world with its mission of spreading knowledge about science and biomechanics.
Now, being part of the golden history of International Society of Biomechanics, we continue in providing knowledge and promoting understanding of biomechanics with our website. We are one with ISB in encouraging and helping groups in conducting meetings, conferences, fairs and festivals that celebrate biomechanics. Through this digital platform, we hope to create awareness of the importance of biomechanics in various applications in human life.
In this website, we feature the best and the most substantial keynote speeches and presentations from notable figures of science and biomechanics. These keynote speeches are extracted from all the Congresses of the International Society of Biomechanics.
Biomechanics Research Projects
We also showcase the research projects that are created and developed by students, teachers, educators, researchers, and scientists that contribute to the growing knowledge about biomechanics. These biomechanics research projects are highlighted from regional, national and international science fairs and festivals.
If you wish to read some fresh content about science and biomechanics, you can always check our blog posts. We provide the latest news and updates about biomechanics and related sciences. We wish to provide you easy access to the digital resources of knowledge.
We also promote a community of unique individuals who dedicate their time and effort in understanding biomechanics. Through this website, we encourage debate, conversation and sharing of knowledge so that more people will find themselves deeply engaged and interested in biomechanics.
This website also provides an opportunity for researchers and scientists to learn more about science and biomechanics. We also feature grants and sponsorships from trusted science organizations, sponsors, and exhibitors that aim to promote education for aspiring scientists and researchers.
