Call for Papers | The Science and Practice of Racket Sport for Improved performance and Health: Special Focus on Table Tennis | Sport Science Conference, April 25–27, Halmstad University, Sweden. Call ends February 5, 2018

The conference will be held in English and takes place some few days prior to the LIEBHERR World Team Table Tennis Championships in Halmstad Arena on April 29 to May 6, 2018.

Three main topics

Three topics will be in focus: a) High performance, b) Health and Innovation, c) Sport sciences. Thus, we expect the Conference to provide an excellent possibility to discuss interdisciplinary perspectives on health and racket sports focusing on keywords such as adapted physical activity, promotion, prevention, treatment and evaluation.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is prolonged to the 5th of February.

Keynote speakers and experts

A blend of leading expert keynote speakers representing the Nordic countries, as well as international well-known speakers and experts in the field representing different racket sports and disciplines such as sport and exercise psychology, sports pedagogy and sports medicine and other scientific disciplines. This will stimulate critical thinking and provide the basis for enhanced discussions about sport science and racket sports.
