2012 Sport and
The 2012 Sport Conference will be held at the
Cambridge University, Cambridge, UK from 23-25 July
2012. Held directly before the 2012 Summer Olympics in
London, the Sport Conference aims to examine many
critical issues including some additional themes that
will be announced soon. With such close proximity to
the 2012 Olympics, it is their hope to have a strong
connection between the conference and the London
Sport and Society Conference will address a range of
critically important issues and themes relating to the
Sport and Society. Plenary speakers will include
leading thinkers and practitioners in sports, as well
as paper, workshop and colloquium presentations by
researchers and practitioners in all fields of
kinesiology and sport.
They invite prospective participants to submit a
presentation proposal for one of the following
parallel session options: a 30-minute paper; a
60-minute workshop; a jointly presented 90-minute
colloquium session; or a virtual session. They also encourage
innovative presentation formats, such as roundtables,
staged dialogues, screenings and performances.
Parallel sessions are loosely grouped into streams
reflecting different perspectives or disciplines. Each
stream forms a talking circle, an informal forum for
focused discussion of issues and Conference themes.
Participants may choose to submit written papers
before or after the Conference for possible
publication in the peer reviewed The International
Journal of Sport and Society. Virtual participants
also have the option to submit papers for
consideration by the Journal. All registered
Conference participants receive a complimentary online
subscription to the Journal when registration is
finalised. This subscription is valid until one year
after the Conference end-date.
