IPC SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCES: VISTA

The VISTA conference is designed to promote and advance the mission, goals, objectives and reputation of the IPC and provides a platform for sport scientists to meet with experts in the field of sport for athletes with an impairment. Due to a need for greater opportunities to discuss and exchange knowledge, the VISTA Conference has become an important international event for sports scientists and researchers as well as for elite sport for athletes with an impairment.
