The 2019 Footwear Biomechanics Symposium will take place within the beautiful Pomeroy Lodge in Kananaskis, Alberta, Canada, July 28-July 30, immediately prior to the 2019 International Society of Biomechanics Congress. The resort is conveniently located 90 minutes (120 km) from the Calgary International Airport and is surrounded by a vast array of hiking and biking trails that span the Kananaskis Village. We would like to thank our current conference sponsors: University of Calgary: Faculty of Kinesiology, Novel, Xsensor, Brooks, Li-Ning, Mizuno and Under Armour.

We would like to thank all those that submitted abstracts for the #FBS2019. We received a record number of abstracts and all abstracts are currently undergoing the peer-review process. Decisions on abstracts should be distributed to authors in early April.

While abstract submission is officially closed, a reminder that early registration for the conference is currently open and will remain open until May 15, 2019. After May 15, both student and regular registration rates will increase, so save some money and register early at

The Footwear Biomechanics Symposium promotes research and the discussion of biomechanical issues related to functional footwear, including sport shoes, clinical/prescription footwear and footwear designed for special purposes. The conference not only includes many ground-breaking presentations within the realm of footwear science but is fortunate to have a large industry presence including scientists and representatives from many of the top footwear companies.



The ISB promotes the study of all areas of Biomechanics at the International level.
