Dear colleagues,

We are organizing an exciting multidisciplinary, international research symposium on ‘Foot and Ankle Biomechanics’, in Limelette (Belgium) on October 21st-22nd , 2011. This symposium is organized by the Chair Berghmans-Dereymaeker in collaboration with the dept . of mechanical engineering (division of biomechanics) and dept. of biomedical kinesiology (neuromuscular biomechanics laboratory) of KU Leuven.

The program presents keynotes and invited lecturers covering aspects on foot and ankle biomechanics, ranging from ANALYSIS OF FOOT FUNCTION USING MOTION ANALYSIS, MEDICAL IMAGING AND MODELING to CLINICAL DECISION MAKING AND SURGICAL PLANNING.

Prior to the symposium, an instructional workshop on EVALUATION OF FOOT FUNCTION USING ADVANCED MOTION ANALYSIS METHODS is planned in the new Motion&Posture Analysis Laboratory Leuven (http://faber.kuleuven.be/MALL/index.php).

The program of both events is announced at http://www.mech.kuleuven.be/foot-and-ankle-2011/.
As participation is limited to 70 persons for the symposium and 30 persons for the workshop and, we invite you to register ASAP through http://www.mech.kuleuven.be/foot-and-ankle-2011/registration .

We look forward to seeing you in Limelette!

If you have any further practical questions do not hesitate to contact the organizers through Secretariaat.BMe@mech.kuleuven.be.
