World Congress of Biomechanics history

Biomechanics is a revolutionary field of study that is helping human life and research for a decade. This is the field that gets less recognition and collaboration than it deserves. Keeping that in mind, a world congress of Biomechanics is formed.

 

The first world congress of Biomechanics

The first world congress of Biomechanics was held back on August 30, 1990. It was a 5-day event where all the engineers and scientists from various disciplines were brought together. There were various exhibitions on the latest cutting-edge technology at that time, in addition to the medical devices and publications. Almost 1200 papers were presented on various topics like orthopedic, muscle mechanics, sports medication and so much more.

The second world congress of Biomechanics

The second world congress of Biomechanics was held back on 10th July 1994. The event was held in The Netherlands. About 1126 abstracts were delivered to the congress and 20 were chosen for oral presentation.  

The third world congress of Biomechanics

The third world congress of Biomechanics was held back on 8th August 1998. It was held in the city of Sapporo in Japan. The Science Council of Japan and the JNCB (Japan National committee on Biomechanics) held the event. There were around a thousand participants from 31 countries all around the world.

The fourth world congress of Biomechanics

The 4th world congress of Biomechanics was one of the biggest ones to date. It was held at the University of Calgary on 2nd august 2002. Almost 1500 of the world’s leading researchers came to the event with their expertise in biomechanics. Around 1,100 free communications were provided in the event.

The fifth world congress of Biomechanics

The fifth world congress of Biomechanics was held in the city of Munich. The congress was from 29 July to 4th August 2006. This was the 15th conference. The event provided ESB award lectures with symposia and discussion on the latest biomechanics’ tech and science.

The sixth world congress of Biomechanics

The sixth world congress of Biomechanics was hosted by the renowned Biomedical Engineering Society of Singapore (BES) and Global Enterprise for Micromechanics and Molecular Medicine (GEM4) With the collaboration of the National University of Singapore (NUS). The event emphasized some of the most cutting-edge technologies and medical applications including crash injuries.

The seventh world congress of Biomechanics

The 7th world congress of Biometrics was held in Boston, Massachusetts. The event places rotate around various places in Europe, America, and Asia. In this congress, various researchers and scientists came on disciplines like biology, chemistry, computer science, and other clinical subjects. It was held on 6 – 11 July 2014.

The eighth world congress of Biomechanics

The last event was held back in 2018, the 8th of July. The place of the event was in the city of Dublin, Ireland. The Conference Co-Chairman was Prof. Daniel J. Kelly and Prof. Fergal J. O’Brien.

The Ninth world congress of Biomechanics

The 9th world of congress is planned to be held in Taipei Taiwan. The event will be held in the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC). This is an excellent opportunity for Asia, especially Taiwan to Showcase its talent in the field of biomechanics.
