Conference abstract

The 11th interdisciplinary meeting of the dvs sections biomechanics, motor control and learning in sport (Sportmotorik) and training science will take place in Darmstadt. The conference aims at bringing together scientists from the three sections to discuss interdisciplinary issues at the intersection of biomechanics, motor control and learning and training science. A special emphasis will be on the application of technologies to analyze and support human movements. In the research fields of biomechanics, motor control and learning and training science, numerous technologies have been developed and applied like measurement systems, stimulation systems or presentation technologies. In this regard, technology can be used either as a research or an intervention tool. To fully exploit the potentials of these technologies an interdisciplinary account is required considering the psychophysiological as well as the physical aspects of these technologies.
