I am pleased to announce that the 14th biennial ESM (Expert Scientific Meeting) 2014 Conference will be held in Cambridge, Massachusetts July 2-6, 2014 ( ESM will take place directly before next year’s World Congress of Biomechanics, also in Boston.

ESM 2014 is a conference with a multidisciplinary approach and will have four keynote speakers. The conference will feature two days of scientific research on the latest developments in load distribution measurement. Researchers from all disciplines (basic science, research and development, applied science, clinical etc) and utilizing all technologies of load measurement are welcome. Meeting space, accommodations, and other conference activities will be held at the historic Sheraton Commander Hotel Harvard Square ( In addition the networking day will take place on the 4th of July. Boston’s history is intertwined with that of the 4th of July Holiday and the celebration in Boston is unlike any other in the country! As in the past, a workshop presented by novel will be held on July 6th providing attendees with information on the latest advances in load distribution measurement.

The scientific conference will begin on the evening of July 2nd with an opening reception. The following scientific days will include oral and poster presentations and evening events with plenty of time for networking. The art in science award for load distribution measurement research will be presented for the best scientific manuscript in the field of load distribution measurement and the winner will receive a prize of US$ 5,000. Prizes will also be offered for the best presentation and poster at the conference. Deadline for submission of abstracts is February 28, 2014.

Cambridge Massachusetts, also known as the “City of Squares”, is home to two of the world’s most prominent Universities, Harvard University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology, located on Harvard Square and Kendall Square, respectively. The “squares” are perfect for shopping, sight-seeing, and have plenty of museums, theatres and historical sites. The Harvard Museum of Natural History will host one of ESM’s evening events and will bring the “art in science” aspect of the conference. Boston airport is approximately 20 minutes from the conference venue and attendees may take public transportation from the airport to nearby stop at the Sheraton Commander. The greater Boston and New England area offers many other attractions including historic sites, beaches, boating, world-class restaurants and much more!

I am very excited to invite you to join us in Cambridge and hope to see many of you next July!
