This world class Keynote Line Up is supporting the fantastic Abstract Submissions in the areas of ‘Sport Sciences, Physical Activity & Physical Education’ (N = 65) from PGs all over the island of Ireland, and promises to be a great event.


Conference Aim: to ‘provide Postgraduate Research Students, from Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) across the island of Ireland, with the opportunity to present their work to peers, research supervisors from other HEIs, and indeed interested academics in a supportive and collaborative environment’.


Keynote Speakers:

Prof. Mark Williams – “The Best – How Elite Athletes are Made”

Williams research interests focus on the neural and psychological mechanisms underpinning the acquisition and development of expertise. You can read more about Prof. Mark Williams HERE

Further Related Objectives Include:
• Exposure to the peer-review process with regard to submitted research proposals based on (i) preliminary data and/or (ii) research-in-progress.
• The enhancement and development of PG research skills through the research presentation process (i.e. via Poster or Oral Presentation format).
• Live constructive feedback on Poster/Oral Presentations, with further opportunity to engage with peers and discipline experts on-site.
• The opportunity to contribute to, and learn from, the ‘knowledge exchange’ potential of this in-person event across all Conference Sessions.


Key Thematic Areas:

• Exercise Science & Sports Performance
• Physical Education & Sport Pedagogy
• Physical Activity & Health
• Athletic Therapy & Sports Medicine


This year, we are extending the latter thematic area to include the Sports Medicine domain, which is rapidly developing in both the research and practitioner space across the island of Ireland.
