Given recent discussions regarding foot and ankle axes our announcement
is well timed!

Dear Biomechanics community, for those of you who were unable to enjoy
ISB 2007 in Taipei we would like to point you in the direction of an
important international foot and ankle biomechanics initiative:
www.i-fab.org .

The International Foot and Ankle Biomechanics Community will be a
virtual community of all people interested in foot and ankle
biomechanics and will be based around a collaborative workspace IT
infrastructure to support greater connectivity between biomechanics
researchers worldwide, and between researchers and research users. We
presented the launch of the i-FAB community on Monday 2nd July after a
full day of foot and ankle and footwear dedicated sessions at ISB 2007.
The launch presentation slides are available from the i-FAB home page.
We had a good response on the day and my email "inbox" has busy ever
since! with contact from academic and industry partners.

We encourage you to join i-FAB (its free) and follow its progress over
the next 12 months, there will be regular bulletins.

We have a meeting organised with Dr Alberto Leardini and colleagues in
Bologna for September 8-10th 2008 and we hope you will be able to join

Hope you be able to join this exciting initiative.
