ISPGR World Congress

The ISPGR World Congress brings together posture and gait researchers and clinicians from around the world for discussion and exchange of the most cutting edge knowledge, insights, issues and ideas. ISPGR holds biennial meetings around the world for basic and clinical scientists in order to:

  • Present and discuss the latest research and clinical findings relating to the control of posture and gait and related disorders.
  • Facilitate interaction between members who meet from all corners of the globe.
  • Promote the broad discipline of posture and gait research.

The 2017 Congress was held in Fort Lauderdale, FL, USA - visit the 2017 page for further information

Statement on the Executive Order on Visas and Immigration

As an association dedicated to international exchange of scientific knowledge and ideas, the International Society of Posture and Gait Research (ISPGR) shares the worldwide concern for the recent US travel ban for citizens of certain countries.  The extent to which the temporary ban will influence our members’ ability to attend the ISPGR World Congress in June is, at present, unclear.

We want to assure you that the ISPGR Board and 2017 World Congress organizing committee is closely monitoring the situation and will continue to seek clarification on the potential impacts on our members. We greatly value all our ISPGR members from all over the world, and are committed to taking steps, if and when, necessary to accommodate those whose participation at the Congress may be negatively affected by the US travel ban.

Please continue to check our ISPGR website ( for any future updates.
