    We are pleased to announce that the International Calgary Running Symposium ( will be held at the Hyatt Regency in downtown Calgary, Canada, between the 14th and 17th of August, 2014.

    As part of Dr. Benno M. Nigg’s retirement festivities, we have been able to secure over 20 of the most influential running experts in the world to speak at the Symposium. Speakers include leaders in the industry, academia, and media sectors, ensuring a comprehensive coverage on the topic of running including:
    • Running Performance
    • Running and Loading of the Loco-motor System
    • Running Injuries
    • Basic Running Science
    • Running Shoes and Surfaces
    • Minimalist Shoes
    • Barefoot Running
    • History of Running Research
    • Unstable Shoes
    • Fatigue in Running
    • Muscle Tuning

    We anticipate this conference will be the highlight of the 2014 running science program, combining international leading experts from all areas of running research, business, journalism and coaching. Panel discussions on the hottest and most controversial topics will be combined with invited lectures on cutting-edge research, supplemented by poster presentations (abstracts accepted from Masters students, PhD students and post doctoral fellows). The conference will combine unique and wide ranging expertise, from basic science to applied research on performance and injury, with unique insights from all perspectives of running. We want this to be the most stimulating meeting of its kind, with excellent conditions for knowledge exchange, providing the impetus for novel research and applications.

    We hope for a once in a life time experience for all.
