The Technical Group on Computer Simulation (TGCS)

The Technical Group on Computer Simulation (TGCS) is pleased to welcome you to the 14th edition of the International Symposium on Computer Simulation in Biomechanics (ISCSB). The Symposium will be held in Natal, Brazil, August 1-3, 2013, the week leading up to the ISB Congress. The spectrum of covered topics spans all areas related to computer simulation in Biomechanics.

Natal, also called the city of the Sun, is located in the Northeast of Brazil and offers an attractive venue with its beautiful beaches and warm weather.The symposium will be held at Praiamar Natal Hotel & Convention, located by the beautiful Ponta Negra, the most prestigious beach in Natal. Ponta Negra is famous for its warm water cove with the Morro do Careca (Bald Hill), a dune more than 120 feet high.

The preparations for the symposium are currently in an advanced state. We have already received excellent submissions and we are putting together an attractive program including two exciting keynote lectures:

“Space-Time Methods for Optimal Control, Design, and Estimation in Musculoskeletal Systems”
Dr. Ton van den Bogert, Cleveland State University (CSU), USA

“Modeling and Simulation of Spinal Cord Neuronal Networks Involved in Muscle Activation”
Dr. André Fábio Kohn, University of São Paulo (USP), Brazil

The traditional format for the meeting, with oral sessions followed by demonstration sessions will provide an excellent opportunity for information exchange and discussion among delegates. Registration will open on April 15th, and includes welcome reception on August 1st, coffee breaks, lunches, and banquet with Brazilian’s northeast specialties on August 3rd. Early registration deadline is May 15th.
