It gives us great pleasure to be awarded with the host of the 9th World Congress of Biomechanics in Taipei, Taiwan. The Congress will take place in July 2022 in the Taipei International Convention Center (TICC).
The World Congress of Biomechanics, held once every four years, is the most prestigious international meeting on biomechanics in the world. From the first Congress in La Jolla, California, USA in 1990, the WCB has been rotating among Europe, Asia/Oceania and Americas. After the 8th WCB in Dublin, Ireland, the Congress will return to Asia again in 2022. The 9th WCB in Taipei is an excellent opportunity for you to visit Asia and experience the history, culture and stunning landscapes of Taiwan.
Taiwan as a small island that harbors 23 millions of population and about 100 universities and colleges, stays very active in R&D and product innovation, and is known for its role in the modern industrial and technological production chain world-wide. Taiwan has a big biomechanics community and a long history in biomechanics education and research, as well as a fast-growing industry in related areas. We have made significant contributions to the international biomechanics community and formed close collaborations with regional societies.
We have already invited several prominent scholars to join forces in our Organizing Committee. Together with regional and international biomechanics societies, we are confident to deliver a successful, high quality and enjoyable World Congress of Biomechanics. We look forward to welcoming you in Taipei in 2022！
