The 4th Annual All-Ireland Postgraduate Conference in Sport Sciences, Physical Activity and Physical Education will be hosted by the Institute of Technology, Carlow, on Friday April 21st, 2017.
The All-Ireland Postgraduate Conference in Sport Sciences, Physical Activity and Physical Education aims to provide research students the opportunity to present their work to peers and academics, in a supportive learning and collaborative environment.
We aim to make the conference inter-institutional with input from staff and students from third level institutions across the island of Ireland. This year there will be a unique opportunity to observe and participate in practical masterclass workshops under one of the three main thematic areas. The 2017 conference will focus on the theme of ‘Research to Practice’ with awards presented to delegates for the best oral, and poster presentations under this theme. There will also be awards for the best ‘visual’ poster and best overall oral presentation.
We look forward to welcoming delegates undertaking research for a Masters/PhD relating to the following thematic areas:
1. Sports Performance
2. Physical Activity and Physical Education and
3. Injury Prevention and Rehabilitation
This conference provides an excellent opportunity for postgraduate students to:
Enhance and develop their research skills by presenting and disseminating their research in a supportive conference environment;
Present research proposals, preliminary data or research-in-progress;
Network and form new collaborations in a supportive, interdisciplinary environment;
Receive constructive feedback on their poster/oral presentation.
