Symposium on The Biomechanics of Functional Footwear
==================================================

The University of Calgary
Calgary, Canada
August 18-20, 1994

organised by the ISB Working Group on Functional Footwear
in conjunction with the Canadian Society of Biomechanics Biennial Meeting

A Symposium on the Biomechanics of Functional Footwear will be held in
conjunction with the Canadian
Society of Biomechanics Biennial Meeting in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, from
August 18 to August 20, 1994

The Symposium is being organised by the ISB Working Group on Functional
Footwear. The Working Group
was officially established at the XIV ISB Congress in July of 1993. and
aims to encourage research and
promote discussion of biomechanical issues related to functional footwear,
including sports shoes, clinical
and prescription footwear and footwear designed for special purposes.

The Symposium will be a one and a half day meeting, running in parallel
with the Canadian Society of
Biomechanics sessions. This inaugural scientific meeting of the Working
Group will include presentations on
several different aspects of functional footwear biomechanics and time will
be allotted for extended discussion
of relevant issues. In addition, a number of seminars by experts in the
field of footwear biomechanics will be
presented. A detailed programme will be announced early in January of 1994.


All those interested in the biomechanics of footwear are encouraged to
attend and participate. Registration is
included that of the CSB Meeting.
