2014 Conference Theme: “The Competitive Advantage”

Sports are an integral part of every society, even as choices and preferences, indeed the very definition of sport, varies across cultures. Sport can be integral to child development, to self-identity, and to physical and mental health. It also can become a lifelong pursuit or passion, for some a path to fame and riches and/or a road to debilitating physical effects long after retirement, and for many a passive outlet from pressures in other aspects of life. The theme of this conference is “The Competitive Advantage”. Modern science has much to contribute to modern sport and competitive athletics, both to maximize rewards and to reduce risks, and the social psychology of sport varies in fascinating ways across time and space.
