Call for Papers | “Moving Women: Shaping Victories”, Women in Sport and Exercise Academic Network (WiSEAN) Conference | University of Portsmouth, June 26–27, 2024. Call ends March 8, 2024


Opportunities for women in sport and exercise are expanding rapidly, whether it is leading a governing body, excelling in elite competition or simply participating for fitness, camaraderie and the love of sport. However, there is still much work to do to achieve a level playing field.

The Women in Sport and Exercise Academic Network (WiSEAN) aims to bring together leading academics and practitioners from a range of disciplines to grow, strengthen and promote research on women in sport and exercise, with the ultimate goal of optimising women’s athletic success and their participation.

This conference aims to explore the theme “Moving Women: Shaping Victories”, focusing on empowering women in the realms of sport and exercise. Our goals are to:

      • Celebrate the advancements in research that enhance the overall well-being of women athletes
      • Challenge existing attitudes and boundaries that persist for women in the sports industry and inspire change
      • Provide a dynamic platform for networking and enhance confidence through shared knowledge and experiences

The WiSEAN is a research-orientated interdisciplinary group that aims to grow, strengthen and promote research with women in sport and exercise.

We look forward to bringing together students, academics, and practitioners spanning various disciplines such as psychology, physiology, biomechanics, strength and conditioning, coaching and performance, sociology, cultural studies, and leadership and management.
