ACSM Conference on Integrative Physiology of Exercise
Sept., 5-8, 2018 - San Diego, Calif., USA Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina
On behalf of the Scientific Planning Committee and the American College of Sports Medicine, it is my pleasure to invite you to attend the 2018 ACSM Specialty Conference, “INTEGRATIVE PHYSIOLOGY OF EXERCISE” to be held at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina in San Diego, California on September 5-8, 2018. A 7:00 p.m. keynote lecture given by Dr. Michael Joyner followed by a reception will be held on Wednesday, September 5 to welcome you to San Diego and the conference.
To emphasize the rapid research developments in key areas of exercise physiology, the IPE 2018 program will focus on the following major themes:
- Integrative exercise physiology and metabolism
- Skeletal muscle, exercise, inactivity, and signaling
- Hot topics in exercise physiology
- Cardiovascular exercise physiology
To achieve a balanced schedule, we have organized morningand late afternoon symposia and scientific debates around the four conference themes. The symposia lectures will be given by senior as well as emerging scientists and are intended to provide a springboard for dynamic scientific exchanges. Importantly, each symposium will include aspects of how advances in basic science lead to changes in practice.Scientific poster sessions are scheduled on each day of the conference (1:00-3:00 p.m.) and these unopposed poster presentations will comprise a major component of the conference. Indeed, the abstracts that you present will shape the exchange of information and ideas that transpire in this exciting venue. Please note that we will begin taking abstract submissions in early May and the abstract submission deadline is June 28, 2018 (see the ACSM website for details).
Finally, we’re very excited that Michael Joyner will be delivering the opening keynote address and that several senior scientists will be participating in the mid-day debates we have planned during the 2018 IPE meeting in their respective disciplines. So, mark your calendars for September 5-8, 2018 and set your sights on beautiful San Diego.
