Conference on: Science of Sport, Exercise & Physical Activity in the Tropics, Nov 28-30, 2013, Cairns, Australia
Dear fellow list members,
For those list members interested in the multi disciplinary aspects of sport, exercise and physical activity in extreme hot and/or humid environmental conditions, please note that James Cook University, Cairns, Australia will be hosting an international conference between 28-30 November 2013 titled: ‘The Science of Sport, Exercise and Physical Activity in the Tropics.’
The Science of Sport, Exercise & Physical Activity in the Tropics conference is aimed at both academic and practitioner audiences and will address the physiological and psychological mechanisms, interventions and responses to sport, exercise and physical activities performed in hot, humid tropical conditions. This event will bring together prominent speakers from Australia and around the world to consider this topic – from community participation in exercise and sport, physical activity to elite performance and their impacts on individuals and public health.
The conference will provide the opportunity to hear the latest scientific developments through keynote and invited presentations, free papers, posters and discussion forums. Individuals will be invited to submit abstracts of original works for presentation at the conference and publication in the peer-reviewed book of abstracts. Delegates have the further opportunity to submit (optional) full-length original peer-reviewed articles (3000 words) for possible inclusion within the (contract secured with publisher) conference book.
The conference will offer delegates a great opportunity to share scientific evidence with key stakeholders, researchers and practitioners interested in, or working in conditions akin to tropical environments. The event will also provide extensive networking opportunities to discuss pertinent issues with researchers and practitioners in a relaxed and informal environment, and the chance for unforgettable experiences with the largest living organism on Earth, the Great Barrier Reef.
