Invitation to Submit:
We invite you to submit a paper abstract for the 2014 NASSS Conference to be held in Portland, Oregon, USA, November 5-8. Scholars from a variety of disciplines and interdisciplinary “fields” examining issues relevant to the study of sport are encouraged to submit their work.
Abstract Format and Submission:
Abstracts should be limited to 1800 characters (approx. 200 words). The on-line submission format will guide you through required details. Please note that due to time and space constraints presenters are limited to two presentations only (one single authored paper & one coauthored paper; or two coauthored papers).
Paper abstracts will be accepted on-line only. Log on to the 2014 NASSS conference web page. See www.nasss.org “Conference”. Please read through the session descriptions located under the “Conference” tab to determine which session best matches your paper’s theme. After you have determined the session to which you want to submit your paper go to the abstract submissions tab and follow the instructions to complete and send the abstract submission form. Please submit your abstract to one session only. If you are unsure about which session you should submit to or you believe you have a topic that does not easily fit one of the identified sessions, please submit your abstract to the open session listed with all other descriptions.
