ICAMPAM 2024 Call for Abstracts

The International Society for Measurement of Physical Behaviour is delighted to announce its call for abstracts to be considered for the 2024 ICAMPAM Conference. The conference will be held in-person from June 18 – 21, 2024 in Rennes, France.

ICAMPAM brings together leading researchers and clinicians from around the world for discussion and exchange of the most cutting-edge knowledge, insights, issues and ideas. The conference draws leading scientists and clinicians from all areas of physical behaviour research from over 40 countries worldwide, including human movement scientists, signal analysis experts, health scientists, technologists, neuroscientists, biomechanists, and data scientists. Clinicians and therapists with a wide range of expertise also attend including neurologists, neurophysiologists, psychiatrists, pediatricians, gerontologists, rehabilitation specialists and physical and occupational therapists.

HOW TO SUBMIT

All abstracts will be blind-reviewed by the Scientific Committee.

  • ISMPB and ICAMPAM use an electronic process for abstract submission for all submissions
  • Please note there is a $25USD charge for each submission with a maximum of 2 per submitter in the oral/poster category and 1 in each of the workshop and symposia categories.
  • Student abstracts will be considered for student awards unless indicated otherwise

Abstract Submissions

Four submission options/categories:

    Oral and Poster abstract submissions
        All submissions will be considered for an oral presentation, unless the submitter opts out in the submission form by selecting only Poster.
        Oral presentations are 10 minutes long followed by a 5-minute Q & A
    Symposia
        Symposia will focus on a specific theme and will be followed by a moderated discussion. A symposia session will have between 3 and 4 presentations by different speakers that address the central theme.  Symposia will be 90 minutes in length.
    Pre-Conference Workshops
        Pre-conference workshops are designed for a smaller number of participants, and should involve interactive features (e.g. data analysis, open discussion, demonstrations) having a high degree of participant involvement. Workshops will be either 90 or 180 minutes in length.
    Late Breaking Poster Abstract Submissions
          All submissions will be considered for a poster presentation. Poster sessions are planned for Wednesday, June 19 and Thursday, June 20.

    Presenting author:
    The author that plans to present the work in person during the conference. Presenting authors must be the first author on the submitted abstract.

    Non-presenting author:
    Additional authors contributing to the presented work, that would not be presenting during the conference.
