FBS 1999

Overview

The Fourth Symposium on Footwear Biomechanics was held as a satellite meeting of the XVIIth Congress of the International Society of Biomechanics. The symposium was held in Canmore, Canada, August 5-7, 1999. The meeting attracted 109 participants who witnessed a strong scientific program with over 40 oral presentations.

Keynote presentations were provided by Dr. Joe Hamill on the “Evaluation of Shock Attenuation” and Dr. Thomas Milani on “Perception – The Relationship of Biomechanical and Subjective Data”. An invited symposium on “Biomechanically Driven Developments in Sport Shoe Technology” was presented by Dr. Martyn Shorten and Yasunori Kaneko.

 

Sponsorship

The organizing committee would like to thank the following major sponsors for their generous support of the Symposium: Nike Inc., adidas International USA, Mizuno Corp. and Converse Inc. Their contributions provided financial support for the 21 student registrants, allowed reduced registration fees for all participants and presented funding for the awards.
