International Sport and Exercise Nutrition Conference
Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne
December 13th-15th 2012
The first International Sport and Exercise Nutrition Conference will host expert speakers from around the world, including Human Kinetics’ authors, who will present most update research and applied practice in sport and exercise nutrition.
The scientific programme will run in two main themes: performance nutrition and nutrition for physical activity and health.
Keynote lectures and symposium sessions will be led by leading academics and sports nutritionists who will provide overviews of current findings and practices in a wide range of sport and exercise nutrition topics.
Poster and oral communication sessions will also run throughout both themes where delegates will have the opportunity to present and discuss their latest research findings.
The conference hopes to provide an opportunity for delegates to discuss topical issues in sport and exercise nutrition with leading experts and also learn about how the latest research is being applied both in elite sport and clinical populations.
It is hoped that we will also hear from some top athletes and learn how they incorporate nutrition into their daily training programmes and what issues they deal with on a day to day basis.
