The International Olympic Committee (IOC), International Paralympic Committee (IPC), International Federation of Sports Medicine (FIMS) and the International Council for Sport Science and Physical Education (ICSSPE) are proud to announce that their International Convention on Science, Education and Medicine in Sport (ICSEMIS 2012) will take place in at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre in Glasgow, Scotland just before the Opening Ceremonies for the London 2012 Olympic Games.

From 19-24 July, ICSEMIS will be the largest sport science and medicine conference in the world attracting delegates from across the globe including researchers, students and practitioners who attend to share this unique opportunity for multi-and inter-disciplinary scientific exchange in the days leading up to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

The convention theme is “Inspiring a Learning Legacy”, with the Sub-themes, designed to attract inter- and multi-disciplinary contributions and focused papers from all disciplines, to include:

*Athlete Welfare

*Eligibility and Inclusion

*Elite Performance

*Governance and Policy

*International Sports Development and Management

*Major Sporting Events


*Physical Activity and Health

Following the nominations of keynotes and parallel sessions from the IOC, IPC, FIMS and members of ICSSPE, a call for parallel sessions to national and international organisations is being opened from every branch of sport and exercise. This call prioritises national and international organizations ahead of the open call for parallel sessions in Mach, 2011.

Submission are welcomed for the parallel session (i.e., Symposium, Debate, Workshop, Meet the Expert, Master Class, Round table) by 1 January 2011. Submissions should be a maximum of 750 words including a title, brief synopsis of the session and full details of all proposed speakers.

All submissions will be reviewed by the ICSEMIS 2012 Scientific Committee and decisions will be returned by 1 February 2011.

Organizing Committee Chair Professor Celia Brackenridge and Scientific Committee ICSEMIS 2012 Chair Professor Greg Whyte both look forward to receiving nominations for this world-leading convention which will take place just days prior to the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
