Workshop Proposals

Pre-congress workshop proposals accepted from October 1 – December 5, 2018

Pre-conference Workshops are different from symposia and oral scientific presentations, in that they provide a teaching opportunity, allowing participants to acquire or extend their skills, learn about new techniques or technologies, or gain in-depth knowledge in a particular topic related to posture and gait research.



  • Workshops will be 3 hours in length, and will be scheduled either in the morning (8:30am – 11:30am), or afternoon (12:30 pm – 3:30pm) prior to the official opening of the Congress on 30th June, 2019.
  • Pre-conference Workshop organizers must be a current member of ISPGR, and register for the 2019 ISPGR World Congress. Companies that wish to organize a pre-conference workshop must be an official exhibitor of the Congress

Proposals will be reviewed and selected by members of the ISPGR Scientific Content Committee based on:

a) relevance to posture and gait research

b) potential learning experience, and

c) likelihood to appeal to a wide audience of ISPGR members.

Fees may be charged to attendees to cover material and supplies, and administrative costs to organize workshops
