CSB 2018 Halifax

Save the Date & Call for Symposia

We are happy to announce that the biennial conference of the CSB/SCB will be coming east to Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2018. Please mark your calendars for Tuesday 14 – Friday 17 August 2018. The conference will take place at a Halifax waterfront location, in the historic Westin Nova Scotian hotel.

The conference co-chairs are Janie Wilson (Dalhousie University) and Scott Landry (Acadia University), and we have a diverse and multidisciplinary team of organizers already working hard to put together an exciting scientific and social program for you.

At this time, the chairs and organizing committee are looking for suggestions for symposia for the conference. We would welcome any input through the coming months. Please send suggestions to Janie.Wilson@Dal.Ca or Scott.landry@acadiau.ca.

The Society is aiming at expanding its horizons, to ideally include all fields of Biomechanics covered by researchers in Canada, while still fostering the more “traditional” field of the Biomechanics of Movement. Therefore, we would like to ask your collaboration in inviting colleagues working in different and diverse fields of research.

Moreover, we hope that you will encourage your colleagues and trainees who may be interested in joining CSB/SCB to attend, and hope that you will share this with them. We will continue to communicate with you as we develop our program.

We look forward to welcoming old and new members to Halifax in 2018!
