9th World Congress of Biomechanics from the 10th to 14th July 2022 at the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC) in Taipei.
From the first World Congress of Biomechanics held at La Jolla, California, the USA in 1990 to the quadrennial congresses in cities all over the Americas, Europe, and Asia/Oceania, each hosting has shown record-breaking attendance from scientists across the globe. As a result, the World Congress of Biomechanics has become the most prestigious forum for the exchange of new ideas, technologies, and novel findings in a broad spectrum of scales ranging from the molecular, cellular, tissue, and organ levels to the system-wide, as well as in basic research and clinical applications.
Home to 23 million and over 100 universities and colleges, Taiwan is known as the crucible for R&D and product innovation and a significant driving force pushing scientific research into industry. A long history in biomechanics education and research, as well as a fast-growing medical sector, have also provided us with a thriving biomechanics community and opportunities to collaborate and contribute to the international biomechanics community at large.
A year battling the pandemic has tested our resolve and resilience. Still, we hope that WCB 2022 will not only highlight the importance of biomedical innovation and collaborative research but allow us to celebrate contributions our colleagues have made in laboratories, hospitals, and manufacturers all over the world to combat the pandemic, as well as the triumph of the human spirit over adversity.
By bringing together scientists and engineers from biomechanics societies worldwide, WCB 2022 will be both a forum for exchanging knowledge among the best and brightest and a long-overdue celebration of unity.
