Welcome from the Chair
Dear Friends and Colleagues,
On behalf of the Coordinating Committee of the International Convention on Science, Education and Medicine in Sport - ICSEMIS 2016, I hereby welcome all of you to this worldwide event focusing on sports science.
The ICSEMIS 2016 will be held in Brazil, in its third edition after the 2008 ICSEMIS in Guangzhou, China, and the ICSEMIS 2012 in Glasgow, UK.
The theme "Say Yes to Diversity in Sport" reminds us of the importance of supporting the development of cutting-edge knowledge on the science of sport and its application to the various social groups in order to obtain the maximum benefits that sports activity can deliver to the individual and to his/her community.
The event is being organized in a partnership between the Federal University of São Paulo (UNIFESP), the International Paralympic Committee (IPC), the International Federation of Sports Medicine (FIMS) and the International Council of Sport Science and Physical Education (ICSSPE). It aims to bring together experts from all over the world in professional and academic sectors linked to sports science and education, providing an important interaction and a unique opportunity for exchange of information.
This interaction will be accomplished through various activities such as presentation of scientific papers, display of products and equipment from various fields of sports science, sports training tutorials, live sports coaching, among others.
Between August 31st thru September 4th - 2016, the ICSEMIS 2016 will bring to the city of Santos / SP, Brazil, thousands of participants from all professional and academic sectors linked to sport, physical education, exercise, physical activity and medicine in sport.
We look forward to the enthusiasm and the presence of all at ICSEMIS 2016.
