Call for Abstracts for 2008 ICSEMIS

The 2008 International Convention on Science, Education and Medicine in Sport (ICSEMIS) is the successor of the Pre-Olympic Congresses and the Paralympic Congress, and will be held in Guangzhou, China, from 1 to 5 August 2008, themed "Sport Sciences and Harmonious Society in the 21st Century". 21 Sep 2007 By IPC

Four International Sports Organizations (the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), the International Olympic Committee, the International Council for Sport Science and Physical Education and the International Federation of Sports Medicine) join forces with the local organizers of the conference to make the event a big success. The organizers target an audience of 2,500 researchers and professionals from all around the world to discuss the advancement of science and practice of human movement.

The IPC is very supportive towards the Conventions’ emphasis on integrated scientific symposia and thematic sessions. A get together of scientists with the same interest, but targeting a different population (able-bodied athletes versus athletes with a disability) is of extreme interest to all partners. To this extend, the Convention is very important to the further development of sports sciences in the Paralympic Movement.

A first announcement and call for abstracts is now available, with particular attention to be paid to the deadline for abstract submission on 30 November 2007.
