The 17th International Symposium of 3DAHM has successfully completed all its dates.
We would like to thank all participants, speakers, and sponsors both online and onsite.




Objectives of the Group:

The International Society of Biomechanics (ISB) Technical Group on the 3-D Analysis of Human Movement provides a forum for the discussion of all issues relating to the measurement of human movement in three dimensions. This is achieved primarily through the organization of international symposia, typically every second year.

History of the Symposium:

The Group primarily owes its existence to the efforts of Paul Allard and Jean-Pierre Blanchi, who organized the first symposium in Montreal in 1991, and helped with the organization of the symposia in Poitiers, Stockholm, and Grenoble. The formation of the group was also strongly supported by the late Herman Woltring. The International Society of Biomechanics recognized the organization as a Technical Group in 1995. The first organizational meeting was held in Grenoble on July 1, 1996.

2022 Symposium:

2022 symposium will be held in Tokyo, the capital of Japan since 1869, from 16th to 19th of July, 2022.Tokyo is home to diverse cultures and histories, and is an intersection of rich traditions and world-leading technologies. Furthermore, you can reach Tokyo within 3 hours of flight from Taiwan, the venue of WCB 2022. Because of this unique environment and location, we believe that we and Tokyo can give best “O-MO-TE-NA-SHI*” and scientific program to the attendees of 3DAHM in the summer of 2022.

*“O-MO-TE-NA-SHI” is the philosophy of Japanese Hospitality.
