The Congress program will include lab tours, commercial exhibits, workshops, tutorials, keynote and invited addresses, extensive poster presentations, and opportunities to network with other professionals in the field. Activities on Thursday September 16th will be focused on clinical foot and ankle topics including a total ankle replacement workshop, clinically oriented keynotes, and free communications. Topics on Friday and Saturday will include modeling, cadaveric simulation, evolution and non-human primate feet, the diabetic foot, foot and ankle imaging, footwear, and kinematics.

i-FAB (www.i-fab.org) is an international community of clinicians and researchers who are interested in the biomechanics of the foot and ankle. i-FAB was organized in 2007 to improve the understanding of foot and ankle biomechanics, surgery, and footwear, and to foster greater integration among researchers, clinicians, and industry representatives. The 1st Congress, held at the Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli in Bologna, Italy in September 2008, attracted 170 delegates from all over the world.

We hope that you will join us in Seattle in September 2010.
