Congress

We have a biannual i-FAB congress to

  • Connect people interested in foot and ankle biomechanics across different sectors
  • Increase the profile of foot biomechanics in a new territory
  • Connect with disciplines that might not normally have a strong biomechanics component

June 2016 – Join us in Berlin for Foot International!

i-FAB is proud to welcome you to Berlin for the first ever FOOT International Congress from June 23 to June 25, 2016.

Call for Abstracts now announced - click here

This will be the first time that three scientific foot and ankle societies, i.e. the EFAS (European Foot and Ankle Society), DAF (German Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society) and i-FAB (International Foot and Ankle Biomechanics Society) join forces to bring together researchers, clinicians and industrial partners interested in all aspects of the foot and ankle.

Previous congresses have been in Italy (Bologna 2008), USA (Seattle 2010), and Australia (Sydney 2012), connecting the foot biomechanics community with surgical, engineering and allied health communities. Our 2014 meeting was held in Korea, connecting the biomechanics community with the strong footwear industries in the Busan region (see photo). Visit the Korea Congress site.

In 2016 we are proud to be part of 'Foot International 2016', delivered in partnership with EFAS, the European Foot and Ankle Society, and DAF, the German Association for the Foot & Ankle, a section of the German Society of Orthopaedics. Details for our 2016 congress will follow.
