British Association of Sport & Exercise Sciences (BASES) 2017 Student Conference Supplement

The British Association of Sport and Exercise Science (BASES) Student Conference was hosted by the University of St Mark and St John in Plymouth across a two day event in April 2017. This annual flagship event showcases and celebrates undergraduate and postgraduate student research in the area of sport and exercise.  

The conference attracted over 150 delegates and over 120 abstracts encompassing sport and exercise physiology, psychology, sociology, biomechanics and sport performance research. The research papers were presented in both oral and poster formats with delegates participating in debates and discussions in a supportive and friendly manner.  

The theme of the conference was Clinical Exercise Science: Research and Practice and this was exemplified by the eminent keynote speakers including Prof Keith George, Dr Sharon Dixon and Prof Andy Jones. The guests at the Gala Dinner were also treated to an engaging talk from Dr Kate Hays who relayed her experiences as a sport psychologist working with the EIS and athletes competing in the Olympics.  

The event continues to be a great success and opportunity for student researchers to take their first steps into the world of conference presentations and as a stepping stone to publication with the support from the Graduate Journal of Sport, Exercise & Physical Education Research.
