Special Session on
Kinesiology in Sport and Medicine: from Biomechanics to Sociodynamics
 - K-BioS 2018

20 - 21 September, 2018 - Seville, Spain

Within the 6th International Congress on Sport Sciences Research and Technology Support - icSPORTS 2018

Brief Bio
Igor Gruic has a Ph.D. in Social Sciences, Kinesiology, at Faculty of Kinesiology, Zagreb. In 2009, he did an Advanced Master in European Studies at the Faculty of Political Sciences. He’s currently a Assistant Professor and Higher Science Assistant at the Faculty of Kinesiology of the University of Zagreb, as well as a lecturer at the School of Medicine and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computing from the same university.


Symposia is intended to cover areas of and methodology for measurement & analysis of human locomotion, within 1) classical bio-mechanics and motor control & learning (in all levels of hierarchy of information processing and motor controlling circuits – CNS, neuro-muscular-skeletal...), and 2) trends in biotechnology, ICT and applied cybernetics influencing sociodynamics of sportive & medical engagements (Cyber-Physical Systems, Internet of Things-IoT, Internet of Services-IoS, epidemiology, notational analysis, psycho-metrics, big data, etc.) 
We expect that greatest benefits of sharing invited, selected & presented findings would arise from multi-layer & interdisciplinary transfer & exchange of knowledge about liminal values in sport performance (which implies supra-summed outcomes of all linked elements in movement patterns), and medical aspects of human locomotion (which implies compensation of weakest elements of healthy movement patterns), converged into ordinarily represented health.
