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 now open.

The deadline to submit a proposal for a pre-congress workshop is December 15, 2019

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 break), or afternoon (1:00 pm – 3:00pm) and take place on Saturday, July 11.

^

Pre-conference Workshop organizers must be a current member of ISEK and register for ISEK 2020. 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.
