1st Endurance Research Conference


Abstract Submission

We are pleased to announce that we are now accepting abstract submissions for presentation (open communications) at the first Endurance Research Conference to be held between 2-4 September 2015 at the University of Kent. We invite abstracts in any area related to endurance, which includes not only exercise tolerance and traditional endurance sports like long distance running or cycling, but any kind of performance in which resistance to fatigue is important (e.g. also including repeated sprint ability in team sports or resistance to mental fatigue in athletes or those in demanding jobs such as soldiers). We are very keen to receive abstracts that relate to the thematic sessions held on Day 1 and Day 2 of the conference:

Day 1(Wednesday 2 September)

  • Cycling
  • Psychology
  • Physiology

Day 2 (Thursday 3 September)

  • Triathlon and ultra-endurance
  • Pacing
  • Nutrition
  • Running
  • Medical Aspects of Endurance Sport
  • Swimming

For instructions and guidelines on composing your abstract and completing the submission, please see here. Please also use the abstract template to compose your abstract (we can only accept abstracts submitted using this template document).
