The conference will take place at the University of Sydney, Australia, on
July 16-18, 2009. The theme is "New Dimensions on Old Problems" and the
conference will examine ankle instability and other related ankle
pathologies from a multidisciplinary perspective. We anticipate that this
conference will be beneficial and informative for clinicians and scholars
from many disciplines, including orthopedics, physiotherapy, podiatry,
biomechanics, emergency medicine, sports medicine, athletic training, gait
analysis, and kinesiotherapy.
