The ISB Working Group in Motor Control hosted their 8th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics

July 23, 2018

The ISB Working Group in Motor Control hosted their 8th Symposium on Motor Control in Biomechanics  on July 10th-11th, 2018 in conjunction with the 8th World Congress of Biomechanics in Dublin, Ireland.

The symposium, which was supported in part by the De Luca Foundation, featured internationally distinguished researchers in the field of Motor Control and Biomechanics (see flyer for details), including:

  • Dr. Antoine J. (Ton) van den Bogert (Cleveland State University, USA), “A functional and holistic approach to the identification of human motor control”
  • Dr. Robert D. Gregg, IV (University of Texas at Dallas, USA), “Continuously parameterizing the timing and task adaptations of human locomotion for the control of powered prosthetic legs”

Dozens of other progressive researchers had the opportunity to showcase their work during four different Motor Control sessions across the two days, via oral and poster presentations.  You can view the symposium’s complete program here.

The De Luca Foundation also provided Student Travel Awards in the amount of $500 USD for eight students presenting at WCB to participate in the symposium.  Congratulations to the winners!  See winners here.

The De Luca Foundation thanks the ISB Working Group in Motor Control for consistently hosting high-quality educational symposia, with innovative speakers presenting significant findings in motor control.  See the Motor Control Group website for details.
