IRCOBI Conference 2013

Date: 11-13 September 2013
Location: Chalmers University - Gothenburg Sweden
Website: IRCOBI Conference 2013 (information & registration)

Since 1973, the International Research Council on Biomechanics of Injury (IRCOBI) has organised an international conference annually. The 2013 conference will take place on 11-13 September 2013 in the city of Gothenburg, Sweden. Conference venue is Chalmers University of Technology.

The IRCOBI conference has been taking place annually since 1973, and is the premier forum for researchers in the field of injury biomechanics.

The ultimate goal of impact biomechanics research is the design of a safer environment for society: better vehicle interior and exterior design, better protective equipment, safer sporting environments etc. Achieving this requires both scientific and technological advances on many fronts, from the fundamental study of injury mechanisms at the cellular level, to understanding both active and passive whole body motion during impact, and to the detailed influence of vehicle and equipment design on human injury outcome.

Researchers in the fields of biomechanics, crash mechanics, accident reconstruction, sports injury, tissue modelling, epidemiology and all other fields relating to the biomechanics of injury and protective systems are invited to attend.
