1st International Conference on Science and Practice of Strength Sports (SPSS) 2014

  • Conference Call
  • You are kindly invited to par­tic­i­pate in the 1st Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Sci­ence and Prac­tice of Strength Sport (SPSS) 2014, held June 19 – 22, 2014 in Twick­en­ham, United King­dom.

    SPSS is the 1st edi­tion of the Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Sci­ence and Prac­tice of Strength Sports. The con­fer­ence is ded­i­cated to bridg­ing the gap between the­ory and prac­tice of strength sports and is open to any­one inter­ested in strength: sports sci­en­tists from uni­ver­si­ties or other research insti­tu­tions work­ing in advanced top­ics related to strength; coaches and ath­letes (pro­fes­sional or ama­teur) involved in prac­ti­cal strength appli­ca­tions within var­i­ous sports; and indus­try prac­ti­tion­ers and sci­en­tists devel­op­ing prod­ucts (equip­ment, sup­ple­ments, tech­nol­ogy) directly related to strength sports.

    SPSS fea­tures a “pure” strength sci­ence track ded­i­cated to advanced research top­ics, as well as 5 appli­ca­tion tracks for each one of the fea­tured strength sports: Weightlift­ing, Pow­er­lift­ing, Strong­man, Cross­fit and Bodybuilding.

    Con­fer­ence Topics

    SPSS is the 1st edi­tion of the Inter­na­tional Con­fer­ence on Sci­ence and Prac­tice of Strength Sports. The con­fer­ence is ded­i­cated to bridg­ing the gap between the­ory and prac­tice of strength sports and is open to any­one inter­ested in strength:

    1. sports sci­en­tists from uni­ver­si­ties or other research insti­tu­tions work­ing in advanced top­ics related to strength
    2. coaches and ath­letes (pro­fes­sional or ama­teur) involved in prac­ti­cal strength appli­ca­tions within var­i­ous sports
    3. indus­try prac­ti­tion­ers and sci­en­tists devel­op­ing prod­ucts (equip­ment, sup­ple­ments, tech­nol­ogy) directly related to strength sports

    SPSS fea­tures a “pure” strength sci­ence track ded­i­cated to advanced research top­ics, as well as 5 appli­ca­tion tracks for each one of the fea­tured strength sports:

    One of SPSS’s main goals is for the the­o­ret­i­cal and prac­ti­cal tracks to com­mu­ni­cate and to merge as much as pos­si­ble. As such, joint efforts between research insti­tu­tions and strength sports indus­try play­ers are espe­cially encouraged.
