The German Society of Biomechanics
The German Society of Biomechanics comprises over 370 members from the German speaking countries, Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Its members are engineers, clinicians, physicists, sports and computer scientists and other related disciplines. The Society organizes a biannual meeting traditionally hosted by the current president. This year the meeting takes place in Neu-Ulm (southern Germany) from May 15-17, organized by Prof. Lutz Dürselen (http://www.biomechanik-kongress.de). The scientific program will include 91 podium, 89 poster presentations and some interesting keynote lectures (Ch. Hellmich; Vienna, R. Müller; Zurich, L. Claes; Ulm, CH. Bourauel; Bonn). We cordially invite members of the ISB to register for the meeting. However, be aware that most of the presentations will be held in German language. Beside some awards like, Young Investigator, Poster and AMTI Award for the best experimental work, the ISB has again generously granted an award for the best paper in sports science. Thanks to the ISB for this! In 2011, the winner of the ISB award was Renate List from Zurich, for her presentation: How much mobility does ankle arthroplasty need - a video-fluoroscopic analysis. The next biannual meeting will be hosted by Prof. Christof Bourauel from the Lab for Experimental Orthodontics in Bonn. Papers in English language are also welcome.
