7th Portuguese Congress on Biomechanics

Welcome to the official website of the 7th Portuguese Congress on Biomechanics (CNB2017).


In Portugal, over the last decades, Biomechanics has contributed decisively to extending the frontiers of the knowledge, as result of the excellence research. It has led to the development of important applications with relevance in the fields of medicine, bioengineering, biology, sport, ergonomics, rehabilitation, accessibility, occupational therapy, among others.

The Portuguese Congress on Biomechanics aims to promote and encourage the participation of the scientific and technical community of Biomechanics, in order to enhancing the progress and intervention of this field in Portugal.

In order to promote contacts between different research teams and to share the successes achieved, in 2005, it was held the 1st Portuguese Meeting on Biomechanics in Martinchel.

Two years later, the 2nd Meeting was held in Évora elapsing with great success. Due to the natural evolution of these events, in 2009 the event name was changed to 3rd Portuguese Congress on Biomechanics, which took place in Bragança. In subsequent editions, in 2011 and 2013, the Portuguese Congress on Biomechanics took place in Coimbra and Espinho, respectively. Following the past events, the 6th Portuguese Congress of Biomechanics was held in February 2015 in Monte Real, Leiria.

Therefore, the Portuguese Congress on Biomechanics aims to be an open forum for the scientific community engaged in the work and research in various areas of biomechanics, to discuss and share the developed research.

The 7th Portuguese Congress on Biomechanics (CNB2017) will take place at the University of Minho, in Guimarães (Portugal), February 10th-11th, 2017.

We look forward to welcoming you to Guimarães.

The Organizing Committee.
