AUSTRALASIAN BIOMECHANICS CONFERENCE (ABC)

The Australasian Biomechanics Conference (ABC) is ANZSB's scientific meeting held every two years. The objective of the meeting is to connect biomechanists from Australia, New Zealand and the Asia-Pacific region. A special focus of the meeting is to provide a platform for student and early-career researchers to present their work and connect with established researchers in the field of biomechanics.
