International Conference Biomechanics Days of the Bulgarian Society of Biomechanics
Svetoslav Nikolov
Abstract: The International Conference “Biomechanics Days” of the Bulgarian Society of Biomechanics (BSB) was held on November 4-5, 2016 in Sofia, Bulgaria. The aim of the conference was to continue the traditions of the Institute of Mechanics at the Bulgarian Academy of Sciences and BSB in organizing local and international conferences and to afford an opportunity to the biomechanics community for exchange new ideas and experiences.
The conference program was organized according to the registered abstracts in the following sessions: biomechanics and gait control, cellular and molecular biomechanics, rheology of biological tissues and fluids, sport biomechanics. Besides presentations from Bulgaria, there were reports from other countries - Russia, Poland, Greece, Germany, Serbia and Ukraine.
During the conference, there was organized Young Investigators Award Competition (YIA) named to Academician G. Brankov, founder of biomechanics in Bulgaria. Competent jury emanated PhD students Silvia Angelova and Desislava Despotova as winners for the presentations – “Power frequency spectrum analysis of muscles’ EMGs during elbow flexion of the upper limb - comparison between healthy subjects and post-stroke survivors” and “The importance of controllability in dynamic movement training”. The other applicants for YIA were: H. Veleva, PhD student with presentation “Biosorption of acid dye using Quercus coccifera ash: characterization and kinetic modeling”; and Dr. M. Tsveov – “Natural stiffness specification of an exoskeleton arm with pneumatic muscle actuators”.
The next biannual International Conference “Biomechanics Days” will be held on early November, 2018, in Sofia, Bulgaria.
