This “First International Conference on the Science and Practice of Sports Refereeing” will take place in Clermont-Ferrand (France) between the 22th and the 24th September 2014.
The aim of this conference is to provide researchers studying sport refereeing with a discussion space in order to increase and improve the scientific network in this area. This network is then expected to answer new queries and to meet the practical challenges of sport refereeing.
I hope that several researchers in Philosophy of sport will be able to present a paper. Many psychologists and physiologists will be there, but I ‘d like a representation of all scientific domains; it is important to not reduce refereeing to a psychological process. Refereeing and rules, and ethics, and judgement… could be very interesting issues.
