2017 is around the corner. 2016 was a great year and we will keep working to make 2017 even better. As the year ends, I would like to tell you some of the recent advances of biomechanics in EDC.
Chilean researchers organized the I Congress of their Chilean Society of Human Movement. Members of ISB participated as invited speakers. Brisbane 2017 congress was advertised during lectures and informal talks, as well the I Latin American Meeting of Biomechanics, which will be organized in May 2017 during the XVII Brazilian Congress of Biomechanics in Porto Alegre, Brazil.
After my talks in the Conference, I showed the main details concerning the ISB 2017 Congress, details concerning grants applications, abstract submissions and opportunities that participating in the main congress of ISB can bring to the scientists from EDC. The Chilean Association sent a request to become an ISB affiliated society.
Looking forward to a great ISB congress in 2019 in Calgary, prof. Walter Herzog told the participants about the venue of the ISB congress in Canada in four years.
The I Latin American Meeting of Biomechanics that will happen during the XVII Brazilian Congress of Biomechanics in Brazil next May was also advertised during the conference in Chile. The meeting will involve biomechanics scientists from Brazil, Chile, Argentine, Uruguay and Colombia.
Early in 2017 I will request new information from the EDC current projects. The purpose of this request will be to show to the members the advances in EDC projects supported by ISB and to motivate the establishment of new projects.
