Dear Colleagues,

As part of increasing of ISBS’s aim to increase the impact and visibility of researchers work we have developed a collaboration with the American Society of Biomechanics. The American Society of Biomechanics (ASB) will host a keynote speaker from the International Society of Biomechanics in Sports (ISBS) at the 40th Annual Meeting of ASB in Raleigh, North Carolina, USA held August 2nd to 5th, 2016. This inaugural lecture will provide a great opportunity to expose North American biomechanists to the leading edge of international research in the biomechanics of sports. The successful proposal will be based on the ISBS philosophy of Theory to practice.
