WELCOME to ESBiomech 2024:

Dear colleagues, it is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 29th Congress of the European Society of Biomechanics taking place in Edinburgh, Scotland from 30th June to 3rd July 2024. The main theme of the congress – Biomechanics from research to practice – brings the focus on the importance of the dialogue and collaboration between the biomechanics and the clinical communities.
The ESBiomech 2024 scientific programme will include keynote speakers, podium and posters contributions on the latest research developments on all branches of biomechanics.
All traditional ESB sessions and activities will be organized to their full extend – a rich scientific program, interactive and mentoring sessions, students activities, exhibition and networking events.
We are looking forward to welcome you in the beautiful city of Edinburgh!
