Please register your intent to participate in any of the following workshops.

Date: November 27th, 2022

Logemas Vicon 3D motion analysis workshop

Vicon Basic Training (Morning: 10am-12noon) Location - Logemas HQ, 13 Hudson Rd, Albion, QLD, 4010 

This workshop will cover the system configuration tips and tricks that will have your Vicon system in perfect condition for capturing your data. It will examine the system hardware from the camera all the way through to the software interface.  There will be a focus on how to set up the system for optimal calibration and reconstruction of marker data. Finally, it will cover some of the most common problems encountered in Nexus and how to resolve the problem (Troubleshooting FAQ).

Vicon Advanced Training (Afternoon: 2pm-4pm) Location - Logemas HQ, 13 Hudson Rd, Albion, QLD, 4010 

Vicon Nexus has a wide range of advanced analysis features available. This workshop will explore new and more complex models available in Nexus (CGM2 / SCoRE SARA) and best practices to customise skeletons for your specific project. It will examine the integration of other analysis platforms such as Matlab. We will poll attendees for this workshop to ensure that we tailor the workshop to needs of participants. 

* Workshops limited to 20 people for beginner and 15 people for advanced

Early and Mid-Career Researcher (EMCR) Retreat

We welcome all ANZSB members who identify as an EMCR to attend the event which will be held over two days (Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th November). The focus of the event is to build meaningful collaborations within our EMCR community. Our inaugural ANZSB EMCR retreat in 2019 resulted in several positive outcomes for those in attendance including successful collaborative research grants and PhD co-supervision opportunities. We hope to continue to build on this success and provide new opportunities for our EMCR community.

This year's retreat will include social drinks and dinner on Saturday evening (venue TBD) followed by two workshops focused on research and teaching on Sunday, prior to the conference workshops and opening ceremony. 

  • Research workshop (Sunday 8.30am – 10.30am)

This workshop will focus on building collaborations through HDR co-supervision. Sub-groups based upon research interests will be formed allowing attendees the opportunity to discuss in more depth future projects and ideas with a goal of starting conversations around future research supervision.

  • Teaching workshop (Sunday 11am – 1pm)

The teaching workshop will centre on assessment and practical activities adopted within biomechanics units. The goal is to share stories around what you do and what has/hasn't worked in a lessons learned format.

The workshops will be held at QUT, with morning tea and lunch provided. Those wishing to attend any of the sessions (Dinner, Research Workshop, Teaching Workshop) are asked to please complete the booking form that will be sent to all registered delegates.
