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.
WE ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU ALL IN 2013!
