BASES Biomechanics Interest Group (BIG) Meeting 2018

It is our pleasure to invite you to the 2018 BASES Biomechanics Interest Group (BIG) meeting of the BASES Division of Biomechanics and Motor Behaviour. Following on from a successful meeting at University of Portsmouth we are delighted to be hosting the next event at the University of Salford on Wednesday 4th April 2018. The aim of the meeting is to allow staff and research students with an interest in sport and exercise biomechanics to network and present their research to interested biomechanists from the UK.

The programme will include keynote, oral (15 minute) and poster presentations. Prizes will be awarded for best oral and poster presentations. There is no cost to attend this meeting, but registration is required via the BASES website, which is now open. Updates on keynote speakers and programme will appear on the BASES website and on the @basesuk @BASESBIG and @BASESBIG2018 twitter feeds.

Key dates:

  • 31 January 2018 – Abstract submission opens
  • 5 March 2018 – Abstract submission deadline
  • 23 March 2018 – Abstract acceptance/ rejection notification
  • 4 April 2018 – BIG 2018 meeting
