First Congress of Asian Society of Sport Biomechanics: ASSB

We are pleased to inform you that the joint conference of JSB (Japanese Society of Biomechanics) and ASSB (Asian Society of Sport Biomechanics) will be held at Kokushikan University in Tokyo, August 28-30, 2010.

The ASSB is a quite young scientific society, whose inaugural meeting was held on April 2, 2005 at Konkuk University, Seoul, Korea with representatives participating from China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, and Thailand. The ASSB was established to promote the study of sports biomechanics in Asian countries, to develop exchange of information on sports biomechanics and cooperation in Asian biomechanics societies, and to open the new era of Renaissance for sports biomechanics in Asia.

The joint conference is a very good opportunity to make the first actual step toward the purposes mentioned above. It is a distinct honor for JSB to host the joint conference in August 2010 with a support of Kokushikan University. We invite and welcome all prominent researchers, young investigators to this milestone conference.

We look forward to seeing you and exchanging various information in Tokyo this August.

Michiyoshi Ae, Ph.D.
President of the Japan Society of Biomechanics
