International Posture Symposium

The International Posture Symposium

"Posture and Gait in Research and Clinic"

will be held in the Congress Centre of Slovak Academy of Sciences in Smolenice Castle, Slovak Republic. The tradition of posture symposiums in Smolenice Castle, Slovakia, started in 1971 as a second symposium of the International Society of Posturography established in 1969 (now the International Society of Posture and Gait Research).

A new series of posture symposiums in Smolenice Castle started in 1992 and 1994 with help of Thomas Mergner from Germany and continued in 2003, 2006, 2008, 2011, 2015 and 2018.

The program of the symposium will include a keynote lecture and sessions on selected topics with mainly free oral presentations and some posters. This symposium is an opportunity for researchers, clinicians and scientists in the field of sports sciences. We hope to provide a place not only for fruitful scientific discussions, but also for pleasurable social ambience and informality.

We invite you to participate in the exchange of ideas from various points of view of human posture and gait control. More information about the next posture symposium is coming soon.

Yours sincerely,
