On behalf of the Scientific committee and Organizing committee, we are proud to welcome you to the Sport Science Conference: The Science and Practice of Racket Sports for Improved Performance and Health, Halmstad University, Sweden April 25-27, 2018.
The conference will be held in English and is situated some few days prior to the LIEBHERR World Team Table Tennis Championships in Halmstad Arena the 29 of April to the 6 of May 2018.
Halmstad University is a modern and dynamic university in Sweden. About 10 000 students follow our programs and courses. The university recruits students in the area of sport and health from the whole Scandinavia and also hosts many foreign exchange students. The Conference will be held in modern facilities in the Visionen building (Building J) and in the sport arena “Högskolehallen” (Building I) as well as the newly installed Health lab and Digital Laboratory Center (DLC).This provides the participants with a fresh and dynamic environment for lectures, presentations and practical workshops.
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.
A blend of leading expert’s key-note 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.
Your participation in the discussions, your poster presentation and overall contribution to the Conference will determine its success.
