Conference Planning Team

The conference planning team is made up of members of the BASES Biomechanics and Motor Behaviour Division Committee and the host Institution

Biomechanics and Motor Behaviour Division

Biomechanics and Motor Behaviour is a title that encompasses the area of science concerned with the analysis of the mechanics of human movement. In other words, it is the science of explaining how and why the human body moves in the way that it does. 

The BASES Division of Biomechanics and Motor Behaviour aims to develop a network of sport and exercise scientists studying or working within these discipline areas and represent their interests by organising CPD and networking events; and developing and sharing useful resources, available to our Members at the Division Hub.

The team and roles are presented below. We would love to hear any queries, ideas, thoughts or feedback about BIG you have, so please contact us to make your BIG, better!
