Ladies and Gentlemen, 
Dear Colleagues,

On behalf of the FIEP Europe Director Board and Congress Scientific and Organizing Committees we are delighted to invite you to participate on 8th FIEP European Congress "Physical Education and Sports Perspective of Children and Youth in Europe" which will be held from August, 29th to September,1st 2013 in Bratislava. It is a great pleasure and honour for all of us that Comenius University, Faculty of Physical Education and Sports in cooperation with its partners organise this prestigious scientific event in Bratislava during the year of celebration of 90th anniversary of FIEP, the oldest and one of the biggest world international organisations in the field of physical education. The congress is focused on a very actual topic. We have to think about it, where the trends of physical education and sport are at present, what their objectives in changing society are and which role do physical education and sport professionals play in it. We believe that congress will bring answers to many questions and will indicate further trends and perspectives of physical education development in Europe and will help to find its better position and role in the society. Hope to welcome you in Bratislava.

Dean of Faculty of Physical Education and Sports

2013 ICPAFR Symposium will be held in Hamilton, New Zealand on the 29th to 31st August 2013

Print PDF

The Symposium will be hosted by the School of Sport and Exercise Science of the Waikato Institute of Technology (WINTEC). The Co-Organisers for this event will be Prof. Franco Viviani, President of ICPAFR and Dr. Glynis Longhurst of WINTEC.  The Chair of the Scientific Committee will be Dr. Peter Maulder of WINTEC.

The organising committee has opted not to change the theme of the symposium which was to be Padua, Italy during September 2012. The general symposium theme “PHYSICAL ACTIVITY ACROSS THE LIFE SPAN, WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON THE DEVELOPING INFANT AND YOUNG CHILD” has been chosen due to the paucity of knowledge and understanding about the latter part of the theme. We hope to contribute to a deeper knowledge of this important area.

The Board are cordially invited to participate, both in the event and in all formal requirements of the Symposium.  Members are also requested to advertise the event as we are hoping to attract both experienced and young scientists.  Should any members have suggestions for possible sponsors, please let the organizing committee know, suggestions will be greatly appreciated.  The ICPAFR Symposium 2013 website will be up and running shortly as it in the final stages of construction.

THE WAIKATO INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY (Wintec) is located in New Zealand’s North Island, in the region of Waikato, in the dynamic city of Hamilton, home to over 46,000 tertiary students every year. Built on the banks of New Zealand’s largest river, Hamilton is close to everything you want to be part of. Beaches, mountains, rivers, thermal pools, countryside, sport centres and adventure activities are all an easy drive away.



Annu-al Nordic Conference on Educational Research, March 7-9, 2013, in Reykjavík, Iceland.

Print PDF

Iceland_confThe Nordic Educational Research Association and the School of Education at the University of Iceland wish to announce that we have opened for registration and submis-sion of abstracts, posters and proposals for symposia and round-tables for the next Annu-al Nordic Conference on Educational Researchwhich will take place on March 7-9, 2013, in Reykjavík, Iceland.

The theme of the Congress is ‘Disruptions and eruptions as opportunities for trans-forming education’, and says i.a.: “The financial and economic crises since 2008 have shocked the world and led to cut-downs in many public sectors including education.

The Nordic response was generally to protect education and other egalitarian and welfare as-pects of society from the most dramatic measures taken, but in the wake of such defen-sive actions the long-term development of education has to be reconsidered. Disruptions offer us a challenge to explore the direction of educational reforms in the light of the global reshuffling that is taking place.”

Four keynote speakers will address the conference:
Dr. Anna Stetsenko, City University of New York
Dr. Kristján Kristjánsson, University of Iceland and University of Birmingham
Dr. Kristiina Kumpulainen, University of Helsinki
Dr. Diane Reay, Cambridge University UK

Participants will have the opportunity to present papers from all fields of educational re-search, either within one of the 24 networks of NERA or in symposia and workshops/round tables especially designed for the conference.

We welcome proposals from all fields of educational research. The congress language is English. It is possible, however, to present in Scandinavian languages as well.

Deadline for submission of abstracts: November 1. 2012.

In this “coming of age” anniversary of the ECSS Congress, we would like to provide global views and stress the big picture of Sport Science so as to help develop the specialized areas.

The latest advances in technology, mathematical modelling and computational possibilities have led to a new body of scientific disciplines that can cope with the complexity of sports, a privileged area for developing science in our society.

Barcelona is an open city: open to the sea, to culture, to the world and to science.

Benvinguts a Barcelona, Bienvenidos a Barcelona, Welcome to Barcelona!

6th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education, May 13-15, 2013.

Print PDF

The Global University Network for Innovation (GUNi) invites you to actively participate in the 6th International Barcelona Conference on Higher Education "Let's build transformative knowledge to drive social change", May 13-15, 2013.

This edition is focused on Knowledge, Engagement & Higher Education. The Conference will provide visibility and will critically examine one of the most significant trends: the growth of the theory and practice of engagement as a key feature in the evolution of higher education.

GUNi aims to approach the challenge of engagement by higher education institutions in the larger society in an integrated manner: it will explore ways in which engagement enhances teaching, learning and research; it will approach engagement in ways that accept the multiple sites of knowledge creation, as well as the reciprocity and mutuality in learning.

In exploring this contemporary issue, the Conference will attempt to describe how university-community engagement is evolving nowadays, and will discuss and propose to go beyond the limited understandings of a third mission by offering new visions and ways for the future. GUNi invites the international academic community to jointly analyze how to build transformative knowledge to drive social change.
