About The Symposium

On behalf of the Footwear Biomechanics Group we are pleased to welcome you to the Eleventh Biennial Footwear Biomechanics Symposium from July 31st – August 2nd 2013 in Natal, Brazil.

We are honored to welcome you to the city of Natal in Rio Grande do Norte, a northeastern state in Brazil. It has several tourist attractions and is famous for its natural beauty. There is a tropical climate with warm to hot temperatures all throughout the year due to a close location south of the equator. The city is also one of the host cities of the FIFA World Cup in 2014.

There will be a broad spectrum of old and new topics, including exciting keynote lectures from Prof. Dr. Peter Cavanagh (University Of Washington Medical Centre / Seattle) and Dr. Kristiaan D’Aout (University Of Antwerp / Belgium), as well as several invited sessions.

This year we are also pleased to invite partners to register and join us for the evening highlights.

We’re looking forward to an exciting program, and hope to see you in Natal!
