Scientific Program

Following registration and the Opening Ceremony, the scientific program of the ISSP 11th World Congress of Sport Psychology spans four full days of communications relating to our important conference theme Promoting Health and Performance for Life. On each day there will be keynote presentations from two eminent colleagues, reflecting the breadth of the sport and exercise psychology field, including motor learning and control, and addressing the Congress theme.

Each day, there will also be two sessions in which you can meet the speaker, giving delegates the opportunity to talk to keynote presenters in a more personal environment. In addition, there will be concurrent sessions that include symposia, featuring topics of current interest to the field, sessions in which skills and practices are workshopped, and free presentations grouped by common theme, covering research and the application of psychology in sport, exercise and related areas, with special reference to the promotion of health and performance across people's lives. Special times will be assigned for poster sessions covering major aspects of sport and exercise psychology relevant to the theme of the Congress.

To emphasise the importance of poster presentations, there will be an award for the best poster in each session (judged on the basis of content and presentation). The theme has been selected because of the importance of health and performance throughout people's lives. To this end, we aim to encourage attendance by our colleagues in related fields who also value lifelong development and health promotion. We are confident that this will add richness and diversity to the content and perspectives in the scientific program.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers to date include the following:

Dr Carol S Dweck - Stanford University, California, USA
Dr Franz Mechsner - University of Dortmund, Germany
Dr Sandy Gordon - The University of Western Australia, Australia
Dr Nanette Mutrie - Strathclyde University, Scotland
Dr Brad Hatfield - University of Maryland at College Park, USA

Denis Glencross Workshop

14 & 15 August 2005
A minimum of 15 participants are required in order for this Denis Glencross Workshop to run.

The Denis Glencross Workshop was inaugurated in 1997, in association with the ISSP 9th World Congress of Sport Psychology, in memory of Denis Glencross, the Australian sport psychologist, who was elected President of ISSP in 1993, after many years of service to the Society. Sadly, Denis passed away little more than a year into his 4-year term of office. The Denis Glencross Workshop was established in recognition of the sterling service Denis gave to ISSP.

As befits the memorial to a lifelong educator, the Denis Glencross Workshop offers an early opportunity for young scholars in our field, in particular those who are still students, to work with eminent sport psychologists over a two-day period. In the lead up to the ISSP 11th World Congress of Sport Psychology, in Sydney, Australia (a goal that was also close to Denis’ heart), the Workshop will take place on 14-15 August 2005. All current and just completed (2004) students are eligible to attend the Workshop. Attendance is free, but students must register for the Workshop by 1 June 2005.

To register for the Denis Glencross Workshop, students should complete the appropriate section in this registration brochure, indicating their current or recent undergraduate or postgraduate student status. Please note that the Denis Glencross Workshop is not part of the Pre-Congress Workshop program. The Denis Glencross Workshop is a special ISSP event for students. The Pre-Congress Workshops are fee-paying sessions, not included in the Congress registration fee.
