ANZSB Travel Award for ISB 2023

Every calendar year, ANZSB announces awards to support its members attending and presenting at conferences in Australia and New Zealand as well as overseas.

Typically, ANZSB will offer awards for the major biomechanics conferences such as Australasian Biomechanics Conference, International Society of Biomechanics Congress and the World Congress of Biomechanics. Other conferences may also be offered depending on the number of biomechanics conferences held in a calendar year.

ANZSB offers two conference awards per announcement:

  • Student Award for those ANZSB members who are currently enrolled in a biomechanics-related research higher degree

  • Early-Mid Career Researcher (EMCR) Award for those ANZSB members who are no more than 10 year post-PhD, including approved extensions due to career disruptions


A panel of ANZSB executive members will award the applicant who, in the panel’s opinion, has the best abstract.

Each successful applicant of the ANZSB Travel Award will receive financial assistance to contribute to costs associated with attending the conference.

Application Guidelines

  • All applicants must be financial members of ANZSB while student applicants also require that their research supervisor is a member of ANZSB.

  • Applicants must be the presenting author and attend the conference

  • Applicants must acknowledge support from ANZSB in their presentation

  • Be willing to write a review of the conference for an ANZSB newsletter
