To the official home of Research to Practice 2016 – to be held at the Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre, in Melbourne, Australia from the 14th to 16th of April 2016.
This conference led by Exercise & Sports Science Australia is arguably the leading applied exercise, nutrition and sports science conference in the world. In April 2016 we hope to attract 1500 delegates to Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre to be exposed to the latest scientific research, and to engage with colleagues in discussions designed to improve evidence-based practice in the application of exercise, nutrition and sports science.
During this, our 7th conference, we will introduce exciting innovations and initiatives. One of our aims is to promote gender equality in the exercise and sports science professions. To this end, we have committed to ensuring that at least 50% of our invited speakers are female (along with our scientific committee). We have also increased the number of keynote speakers, along with more than a doubling of the number of slots available for 10-minute oral presentations. Once again, this conference will offer the highest value conference prizes worldwide for the exercise and sports science industry.
Over the coming months we hope to bring you exciting updates on the program and speakers, as well as invite colleagues to submit abstracts and enter the various awards we have on offer.
The countdown has well and truly started to Melbourne 2016. Keep an eye on twitter for regular updates…follow @essanews and #RTP16
