As the host of the next i-FAB 2020 in Brazil, it is my pleasure to invite you to join us in this unique scientific venture in the next International Foot and Ankle Biomechanics Meeting, to be held in Sao Paulo and organized by the i-FAB Committee and the University of Sao Paulo. The congress will take place between April 5th and 8th, 2020 and it will happen for the first time in South America. We have the pleasure and the honor to bring this high-level scientific meeting to Brazil and Sao Paulo for the first time ever. This is a great opportunity to visit this beautiful country and discuss the cutting edge research on foot and ankle biomechanics.

The main aim of the bi-annual i-FAB meeting is to promote connections between people interested in foot and ankle biomechanics across different sectors, and to connect disciplines that traditionally might not have a strong biomechanics component. Particularly, the i-FAB 2020 is intended to provide updated and frontier knowledge on the foot and ankle biomechanics, orthopedics and rehabilitation; to enlarge the Foot and Ankle research community by connecting people from academic, clinical and industry fields in different countries; to facilitate the debate on key issues for this community; and to foster seamless activities between researchers and research users.

I look forward to welcoming you to Brazil and Sao Paulo!
Isabel Sacco
