We are delighted to be hosting the 2012 International Congress on Physical Activity and Public Health (ICPAPH 2012) in Sydney, Australia, the biennial congress of the International Society of Physical Activity and Health (ISPAH). ICPAPH 2012 will provide a scientific forum for professionals from many fields and disciplines to share in the latest research, practice and policies relating to safe participation in physical activity.
ICPAPH 2012 will build on the success of the previous Congresses in Atlanta 2006, Amsterdam 2008 and Toronto 2010 in highlighting the importance of, and opportunities for health and exercise professionals, scientists, educators, planners, policy makers and many others to promote physical activity across the lifespan and throughout our wide and varied populations. The Congress will focus on understanding and measuring physical activity and its relationships with public health, on safe participation and on the individual, social, environmental and policy interventions that make a difference.
be active 2012 will bring together some of the finest speakers from Australia and around the world to present a comprehensive scientific forum on all facets of these fields – from elite performance to community participation in sport, physical activity and their impact on individual and public health.
be active 2012 will showcase the latest developments through keynote and invited presentations, tutorial lectures, free papers, posters, practical workshops, debates, discussion forums, other ‘events’ and a trade exhibition. It will also provide extensive networking opportunities.
The anticipated outcome of be active 2012 is to assimilate, interpret and share scientific evidence with key stakeholders who are in a position to develop recommendations concerning effective policies and programs within their own jurisdictions.
