  • Update: Footwear Biomechanics Group

    The Footwear Biomechanics Group - a technical group of the ISB, has a
    new web address:

    ABOUT OUR GROUP: The recently renamed organization (formerly the ISB
    Technical Group on Footwear Biomechanics) is a special interest
    group. Our main mission is to organize biennial symposia on Footwear
    Biomechanics and to publish the proceedings of these symposia. The
    Footwear Biomechanics Group (FBG) has been officially in existence
    since 1993, although we can trace our roots back through a series of
    regular symposia to 1978. As of this writing we have 439 verified
    members from more than 21 countries with interests in a broad range
    of topics related to footwear science and technology. The 58 research
    presentations at our latest symposium earlier this year, for example,
    included papers on: applied biomechanics; aerodynamics, clinical
    science; foot morphology; psychology; and physiology. We had 126
    registrants at our last symposium in Cleveland in 2005, and we expect
    similar or perhaps even increased interest in the 8th Footwear
    Biomechanics Symposium which will be help from 28 to 30 June 2007.
    More details on the 2007 symposium will follow in the next few months.
