The 9th International Posture Symposium
will be held in the Congress Centre of Slovak Academy of Sciences in Smolenice Castle, Slovak Republic, on September 10-13, 2023. The tradition of posture symposiums in 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, ISPGR).
The program of the symposium will include a keynote lecture and scientific sessions related to selected topics with mainly oral presentations. The symposium is an opportunity for researchers, clinicians and scientists in the field of human motor control to share their ideas from various points of view.
We hope to provide a place not only for fruitful scientific discussions, but also for pleasurable social ambience and informality.
Looking forward to welcome you in Smolenice Castle!
