Human Movement Variability Conference and Great Plains Biomechanics Conference
POSTPONED | Human Movement Variability Conference and Great Plains Biomechanics Conference
5th Annual Human Movement Variability Conference &
1st Annual Great Plains Biomechanics Conference
POSTPONED until August 2020, Exact Dates TBD | Scott Conference Center
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 is a new conference that will coincide with the Human Movement Variability conference in 2020. 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. The target demographic includes students, faculty, and clinicians from states such as Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota, North Dakota, Minnesota, Missouri, Colorado, and Oklahoma.
Below is a non-exhaustive list of thematic areas.
- Motor Control
- Motor Learning
- Motor Development
- Behavioral Neuroscience
- Cognitive Science
- Orthopedic Biomechanics
- Musculoskeletal Modeling
- Rehabilitation Biomechanics
- Bioinspired Robotics
- July 1, 2020 | Early-bird registration deadline
- July 1, 2020 | Application deadline for exhibitors
- August 2020 | Pre-conference Nonlinear Workshop
- August 2020 | Human Movement Variability Conference
Online registration will close the day of the conference. On-site registration will be available, payments through credit cards will be preferred (check and cash will be accepted).
Abstract submission is now closed.
Podium presentations: 10 minute time slot, 2 minute questions
Poster presentations: size of poster 36” wide and 48” tall
NEW this year!
Mini-Nonlinear Analysis Pre-Conference Workshop
As part of the conference this year a pre-conference tutorial is being offered.
Promising Graduate Student Award
The Promising Graduate Student Award will acknowledge one student who has performed superior research in the field of Biomechanics or Human Movement Science in general. It entails a certificate as well as a monetary prize. Three finalists will be selected and given the opportunity to present their work for 15 minutes + 5 minutes of questions during the Promising Graduate Student podium session. The awardee will be announced during the awards ceremony. Non-awardee finalists will be eligible for the other awards.
