Professor Bradley Nindl
As the Co-Chair of the Soldiers Physical Performance Congress in 2014, I am looking forward to having some great scientific dialogue with colleagues across the world in Melbourne this November-December. The ICSPP2017 Organising Committee and the Australian Defence Science and Technology (DST) Group have worked diligently to build upon the previous ICSPPs, such as offering student and early career travel awards as a great way of involving young professionals.
I’m anticipating a strong attendance from the University of Pittsburgh’s Neuromuscular Research Laboratory/Warrior Human Performance Research Centre. Also, I know that other colleagues from both the US and internationally are eagerly looking forward to the meeting. On a personal note, I’ve visited Australia twice previously and my experiences were phenomenal. I am currently planning on bringing my family the week before and we will celebrate our Thanksgiving in Australia.
For more information on travel awards and visitor information, please see the congress website www.icspp-australia2017.org
We’re pleased to confirm an overview of the Congress program is now available on the website. The program will be updated online as further information is finalised.
Abstract Mentoring Program
The ICSPP2017, together with the Tactical Research Unit at Bond University, is pleased to provide an abstract mentorship program. The mentorship program is designed to provide emerging researchers, researchers with a first language other than English, or those with limited experience in submitting an abstract for a scientific congress with support in preparing their abstracts. The goal of the ICSPP2017 mentorship programme is to help authors prepare their abstract clearly and concisely prior to submitting their abstract to the formal abstract review process. Participation in the mentorship programme is entirely voluntary.
The mentorship program will be available from now until to the 1st of June 2017.
Come to Melbourne, Australia - The sporting capital of the world
Say hello to Melbourne, the most liveable city in the world. There is a lot to love about Australia’s ‘Sporting city’, with its spectacular combination of old and new architecture, wide, elegant streetscapes and lavish parks and gardens. Add to this world class food, wine and coffee served in the thousands of cafes, bars and restaurants spread out across the city, a packed calendar of sporting and cultural events throughout the year and an array of shopping experiences, and you have all the ingredients for one of the most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities in the world.
There are many places of international interest to visit in Australia, our beaches, the outback, the bush, the rainforests and the reefs but whatever your plans on your trip south remember... Australia its really BIG, so plan to spend a few extra days.
