Fast progress in the development of biomechanics generates the need of periodic meetings of specialists in different fields, so the newest results can be shared and problems discussed. That is why The Polish Society of Biomechanics (PSB) decided to make an opportunity for the biomechanics community to exchange new ideas and experiences. Every two years, in a different city of Poland, an international conference is organised under the patronage of the PSB and named “BIOMECHANICS”.
The upcoming edition will take place on September 1-3, 2014 in Lodz, and the task of its organization have been entrusted to two units of Lodz University of Technology: Department of Automation, Biomechanics and Mechatronics and Faculty of Organization and Management.
As in the past, this year we expect to host many excellent specialists from widely defined areas in biomechanics, who are regular participants in our conference as well as many new guests. This year, there are registered already 120 abstracts prepared by nearly 300 authors from 17 countries. They belong to very widely understood disciplines of biomechanics and cover such themes as: clinical biomechanics, engineering biomechanics, sport biomechanics, biomaterials and implants, computational methods in biomechanics, cellular and molecular mechanics, and many others.
As in previous editions, also this year, during conference will take place the Young Investigators Competition for the Morecki & Fidelus Award, named after two precursors of the biomechanics in Poland. It is an excellent opportunity for young and/or unknown authors to present their research and open doors to further scientific career in field of the biomechanics.
