ISBS Annual Conference

The International Conference on Biomechanics in Sport is the annual event for the presentation of academic research in Sport Biomechanics. The 40th ISBS conference will be held at Liverpool John Moores University, in the city centre of Liverpool UK, from the 19th to 23rd of July 2022. Keynote speakers include Prof. J. Paulo Vilas-Boas delivering the annual Dyson Award Lecture; Dr. Brent Edwards presenting work on mechanical fatigue of load bearing biological tissue; Dr. Emma Hodson-Tole presenting work on the dynamics of skeletal muscle anatomy, motor unit recruitment and multi-muscle coordination patterns during locomotor tasks; and Dr. Todd Pataky presenting work on the analysis and simulation of random processes in biomechanical systems and continua.

Support for research students is a key feature of ISBS conferences, with mentoring and social events organised for students. Financial student members of ISBS are eligible to apply for a travel grant up to 500€ to support the cost of travel.

The ISB World Athletics Award will be held in conjunction with the ISBS conference in 2022. ISBS is pleased to work in partnership with ISB to offer this award in years when ISB is not meeting.

Paper submissions close on the 21st of January 2022 and full conference details are available online at:


ISBS Mid-Year Symposium

ISBS will be hosting our second Mid-Year Symposium online from the 2nd to 3rd of February 2022. This event builds on the huge success and positive feedback from ISBS members on our inaugural Mid-Year Symposium that took place in February 2021.

The symposium will again incorporate a number of different session themes and formats that will be presented across varying time zones to accommodate ISBS members from around the globe. As well as research and applied biomechanics focussed events suggested by ISBS members, events will also include a students’ event and mother’s café. All events will be free and available to ISBS members.
