ISBS 2018

ISBS 2018 in Auckland - 10-14 September 2018

Welcome to the 36th International Conference on Biomechanics in Sports 2018, to be held in Auckland, New Zealand, 10-14 September 2018.

The purpose of the conference is to facilitate knowledge exchange in sports biomechanics.

Within the Māori karakia ‘tenei au tenei au’ is the line ‘te hōkai nei o taku tapuwae’ – the breadth of my stride as Tane ascends to the heavens to retrieve three baskets of knowledge. This embodies human movement and the pursuit of knowledge – the goals of ISBS.
