SICB Division of Comparative Biomechanics (DCB)

On this page:


Research of members of The Division of Comparative Biomechanics (DCB) includes experimental work, computational and physical modeling and rich biological and engineering perspectives on the taxonomic breadth of organisms (extant and fossil) and their function in the physical world.

The Division had its first organizational meeting at the annual SICB meeting in 2007 with strong support. DCB has mounted, often in collaboration with other Divisions, excellent symposia and strong presentation line ups, including from many scientists new to SICB and our robust student community.

Although the Division is relatively new, research in comparative biomechanics is not and SICB has always been an important home for such work. Several DCB awards have been developed and named for luminaries in the field.

The Carl Gans Award
The Carl Gans Award is named in recognition of Carl Gans' scientific career and editorial contributions to animal morphology, biomechanics, and functional biology.
For complete details and nominations please see the instructions linked here.

The Steven Vogel Award for the Best Student Poster in Biomechanics
The Mimi A. R. Koehl and Stephen A. Wainwright Award for the Best Student Talk in Biomechanics
Students interested in being considered for these awards should refer to the SICB BSP application guidelines page linked here.

We encourage members to encourage other scientists to join DCB. A great way to introduce people to the Society and Division is through Symposia. DCB has a strong history of excellent symposia and we encourage you to continue to submit proposals and to consider participants from outside of SICB and in diverse fields of science and engineering. Guidelines for symposium proposal preparation, and other useful sicb resources, can be found here.

  • National Biomechanics Day: Labs around the globe are gearing up to prepare for the 2019 National Biomechanics Day! The official date will be April 10, 2019, but biomechanists are welcome to celebrate on other days. This is a world-wide public outreach initiative to share the wonders of biomechanists with high school students and teachers. More information can be found at .
  • Fish Swimming course at Friday Harbor Labs. Paolo Domenici and John Steffensen will be teaching their Fish Swimming course at Friday Harbor Laboratories between July 22 – August 23, 2019. The course consists of a combination of lectures, field sampling techniques, and research projects that span a range of topics including escape responses, swimming kinematics, respirometry, morphology, and much more. Student research projects may lead to publications in peer-reviewed journals. Financial aid is available. Deadline to apply is February 1, 2019, but early submissions are encouraged. More information can be found at: .

  • Proposed Changes to the DCB Bylaws

    The current bylaws for DCB state that the outcome of elections will be determined by a majority vote, which can be difficult to achieve in the event that more than two candidates appear on the ballot for a given position. In order to improve the election procedures, the following text are proposed as an amendment to the DCB Bylaws. We are planning to have members vote on the proposed bylaws changes at the DCB Members Meeting at the 2019 national SICB conference in Tampa.

    DCB Bylaws (Old language to replace is strikethrough and new language is bold underline)

    Article V. Officers

    Officers of the Division shall be a Chair, a Chair-Elect, a Past Chair, a Program Officer and a Secretary; these officers shall comprise the Divisional Executive Committee. They shall be elected by a majority plurality vote of the members conducted by a ballot prior to the annual meeting by a procedure consonant with the Bylaws of the Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology. At least two candidates should be placed on the ballot. In the event that the election results in a tie, the outcome will be determined by a majority vote of the elected officers of the Divisional Executive Committee. If the votes cast by the Executive Committee result in a tie, the deciding vote will be determined by the divisional Chair. A brief biography of each candidate shall be made available on the ballot. The term of office of all elected officers and appointed representative shall begin at the end of the second SICB Executive Committee meeting at the Annual Meeting in the year the term is to begin and will end at the adjournment of the second SICB Executive Committee meeting at the Annual Meeting in the year the term is to expire. In the case when a divisional office is unexpectedly vacated, the following provisions are made: If the office of Secretary or Program Officer is vacated early, the Chair, in consultation with the Divisional Executive Committee, will appoint someone to serve until elections can be held to fill the position. If the office of Divisional Chair is vacant, the Divisional Executive Committee, in consultation with the SICB President, will appoint someone to be the interim Chair until an election is held.

  • International Meetings
  • The 8th World Congress of Biomechanics (WCB) will be held 8-12 July 2018 in Dublin, Ireland. Abstract deadline is 19 December 2017. Several SICB members are organizing symposia or presenting keynote lectures - see Johan van Leeuwen and Tom Daniel are organizing "Biomechanics in Nature I, a tribute to Prof R. McNeill Alexander" and Graham Askew and Andy Biewener are organizing "Biomechanics in Nature II, a tribute to Prof R. McNeill Alexander" under the "Emerging Areas" Topic. SICB members are encouraged to consider presenting a talk and attending the meeting.

  • The Adaptive Motion in Animals and Machines meeting will be held Aug 19-23, 2019 in Lausanne, Switzerland. Abstract contributions are invited from all areas pertaining to adaptive motion in animals and machines. Abstract submission opens on Jan 18th, 2019 and closes on March 8th, 2019.
