The conference will offer a unique opportunity for a variety of sports related academics, administrators and policy makers, coaches, journalists and students to increase their knowledge, share experiences, and strengthen connections between individuals and organisations with a philosophical interest in sport.

Equally, submissions from any relevant theoretical approach, including analytic, continental philosophy or critical theory are welcomed too.
