The 7th World Congress of Biomechanics (WCB) was held in Boston, Massachusetts, July 6–11, 2014. This is a meeting held once every four years, rotating among Asia, Europe, and North America, with the last meeting in 2010 having been held in Singapore. These meetings are organized by the World Council of Biomechanics, an international organization, and represent the entire spectrum of topics from molecules to whole body kinematics, from basic to applied. The objective of the Council is to provide permanence and stability for the WCB, and to communicate information about the Congress and any associated satellite meetings, as well as to promote the scientific priorities in Biomechanics to the broader community. The first WCB was held in San Diego in 1990, organized by Prof. Y. C. Fung, and this year’s meeting upheld the fine tradition established over the years.
