University to Host World Congress of Performance Analysis of Sport IX Ahead of 2012 Olympics

A prestigious international sports conference will be taking place at the University of Worcester next year ahead of the London Olympics.

The ninth World Congress of Performance Analysis of Sport will feature world leading keynote speakers from the world of performance analysis.

It takes place from July 25-28, immediately preceding the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

University of Worcester’s Professor of Sport, Health & Exercise Science, Derek Peters, who is the Congress Local Organising Committee Chair, said: “There will be more than 120 oral presentations of original world class research and six hours of formal poster presentation sessions to disseminate learning from cutting edge science and research covering all aspects of the analysis of sport & performance.

“We are delighted to be hosting this prestigious Congress at the University of Worcester just before the Olympics when many of our delegates will then get the chance to stay on in Worcester as a base from where to commute to see the world’s top athletes competing.

“We hope that Worcester will be the largest Congress to date and that it will provide a vibrant, innovative and world class scientific programme.”
