Pre-Congress Workshops

Pre-conference Workshops are different from symposia and oral scientific presentations, in that they provide a teaching opportunity, allowing participants to acquire or extend their skills, learn about new techniques or technologies, or gain in-depth knowledge in a particular topic related to the measurement of physical behaviour.


The Call for Pre-Congress Workshop proposals is open from September 15 – November 1, 2023

Workshop proposal guidelines:


Workshops will be either 90 minutes, 2 hours, or 4 hours in length, and will be scheduled either in the morning (8:00am – 9:30am, 10:00am – 12:00pm, or 8:00am – 12:00pm with a coffee break), or afternoon (1:00 pm – 3:00pm) and take place on Wednesday, June 26.


Pre-conference Workshop organizers must be a current member of ISEK and register for ISEK 2024. Companies that wish to organize a pre-conference workshop must be an official sponsor of the Congress.

Proposals will be reviewed and selected by members of the Scientific Committee based on:

a) relevance to the measurement of physical behaviour

b) potential learning experience, and;

c) likelihood to appeal to a wide audience of ISEK members.

Workshop proposals must contain the following information using the online submission form:

  • Workshop title
