Human Movement Variability and Great Plains Biomechanics Joint Conferences
Virtual Human Movement Variability Conference and Great Plains Biomechanics Joint Conferences
May 20-21, 2021*
*Since the 2021 conference will be 100% online, the keynote speakers originally planned for the 2021 conference will instead present at the 2022 conference.
The Human Movement Variability conference is an annual conference organized by the Center for Research in Human Movement Variability and Department of Biomechanics since its culmination in 2016. The goal of the conference is to bring together researchers and clinicians to learn and share the latest in human movement variability research.
The Great Plains Biomechanics Conference will coincide with the Human Movement Variability conference in 2021. The goal of this conference is to provide a student-centered meeting where the growing field of biomechanics is explored through poster and podium sessions and a keynote speaker.
Human Movement Variability Keynote: Dr. James Finley, University of Southern California
Biomechanics Keynote Speaker: Dr. Brianne K. Connizzo, Boston University
