>
> International Society of Biomechanics
> WORKING GROUP ON FUNCTIONAL FOOTWEAR
> B iomechanics of F unctional F ootwear Symposium
> June 28-30, 1995
> German Sports University Cologne, Germany
>
> The Symposium is intended to fit conveniently into the schedules of
> those attending the ISB Congress in Jyvaeskyla, Finland (July 2nd-
> 6th). Direct flight are available daily from Duesseldorf via Helsinki.
>
> The primary aim of the ISB working group is to provide a forum for
> those interested in biomechanical aspects of clinical, athletic and
> other kinds of functional footwear. The Symposium will built on the
> successful format of the first Symposium, with extended seminar
> presentations by envited speakers and opportunities for extended
> discussion of significant issues in footwear biomechanics. App. half
> of the Symposium will be devoted to original papers.
>
> AREAS OF INTEREST
> - the influence of footwear on the kinematics and kinetics of human
> movement.
> - the influence of footwear and footwear design on human performance
> - application of biomechanics research to the design of clinical and
> athletic footwear
> - the role of footwear in the prevention and treatment of deseases of
> the lower extremity
> - the role of footwear in the prevention and treatment of athletic
> injuries
> - influence of footwear on the etiology, occurence and frequency of
> athletic injuries
> - the relationship between shoe biomechanical properties and human
> subjects' perceptions
> - methods for laboratory and field measurement of a shoe's
> biomechanical properties
>
> The official language will be English.

> ACCOMMODATION
> Accommodation in one of the given hotels should be made directly with
