And, most importantly, ISB2023 will be a very special event as it will also be ISB 50th Anniversary. More information can be found on the ISB2023 website:

The Japanese Society of Biomechanics (JSB) was founded in 1957 under the name "Kinesiology Study Group", by 24 people who are interested in biomechanics. We gathered at the Japan Society of Physical Education, Health and Sport Sciences regularly to discuss and share anything related to biomechanics. in 1972, the society held the first domestic conference in Nagoya. It was renamed to Japanese Society of Biomechanics in 1978. Currently, there are about 1200 members. We have held academic conferences annually, edited and published the "Japanese Journal of Biomechanics in Sports and Exercises", and held various educational seminars and workshops. We hope that ISB2023 facilitate and provides a conducive platform for cultural exchange and goodwill through learning and education among all participants. We are sincerely looking forward to you visiting Fukuoka!
