We are very pleased to announce that Corporal Mark Donaldson, VC will provide a closing address to delegates at the networking function on the evening of Fri 1 Dec 2017. Corporal Donaldson is an Australian Army soldier from the Special Air Service Regiment and is our first Victoria Cross recipient in 40 years. The Victoria Cross for Australia is awarded for acts of bravery in wartime and is our country's highest military honour. Corporal Donaldson will share his insights and experiences on the importance of human performance in the military context.


We received an overwhelming response to the Call for Abstracts which closed recently, with over 300 submissions from 25 countries! A huge thank you to everyone involved in submitting an abstract.

The initial review of all abstracts has been completed and all authors should now have received feedback. It has been a monumental effort from the Scientific Committee, reviewing all abstracts in duplicate, and the editors who collated feedback. This review process was necessary to establish consistency in the review process and ensure all abstracts meet the submission requirements for the ICSPP2017 supplement in the Journal of Science and Medicine in Sport (JSaMS). Overall, the standard was very high and we are very excited about the breadth and quality of the abstracts that will be presented at ICSPP2017.

For accepted abstracts, we will advise on the format of your presentation (oral, thematic oral poster, or poster) by 31 August 2017. Please note, that for accepted abstracts the presenting author must be registered and paid to attend the Congress by 8 September 2017.

International Survey for ICSPP2017 Delegates

We respectfully request that all ICSPP2017 registrants complete an international survey designed to identify critical research needs pertaining to soldiers' physical performance.

PURPOSE: At the 4th International Congress on Soldiers' Physical Performance there will be a discussion of research “gaps,” “needs,” and “priorities” pertaining to soldiers' physical performance. The purpose of this session will be to highlight various international research efforts and reach a consensus on priority research topics. The basis for this discussion will be the results of this survey.

REQUEST: This survey is being completed as part of the congress registration process, please look out for the link on your registration confirmation letter. We would like you to provide your own individual responses. No information obtained will be interpreted as an official position of a military or country.
