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

Sunday April 8th – Wednesday April 11th, 2018
Wyndham New Yorker Hotel, 481 8th Ave, NY, USA

We invite you to join us for the 2018 I-FAB meeting in New York City. We have an exciting scientific agenda in a truly unique venue planned. The meeting will be problem based and multidisciplinary. The foot and ankle pathology or concern will be the focus of each session with presentations from the epidemiological, experimental, computational, and clinical perspectives. All related disciplines are encouraged to participate to enhance the breadth and depth of our conference.

I Look forward to welcoming you to New York!
Howard J Hillstrom, PhD, Conference Chair

In June 2016 we welcomed over 700 delegates from 50 different countries to Berlin, Germany, for the FOOT International 2016 Congress, a two-and-a-half day scientific program filled with presentations from our international guests and invited speakers.

The abstracts of presentations and posters have been published in a special issue of Foot and Ankle Surgery 2016: Volume 22, Issue 2, Supplement 1, p1-118 see here.

It was the first time that three scientific foot and ankle societies, i.e. EFAS (European Foot and Ankle Society), D.A.F (German Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Society) and i-FAB (International Foot and Ankle Biomechanics Society) joined forces and brought together researchers, clinicians and industrial partners interested in all aspects of the foot and ankle.

Many thanks to our organizers (Martinus Richter for EFAS, Henrik Boack for DAF, Dieter Rosenbaum for i-FAB), and Key note speakers (Charlie Saltzman from Utah, USA, Julio Ortiz from Chile, and Josh Burns from Sydney, Australia).

The next i-FAB meeting is being planned for April 8-11 2018 in New York City:
