The International Conference on Sport & Society is pleased to offer delegates a selection of optional activities to help enhance the conference experience. A unique selection of tours and activities have been curated which provide excellent opportunities to further connect with colleagues and to provide one-of-a-kind experiences that highlight the conference host city through an offering of local outings and excursions.

Ways of speaking in person
Plenary sessions
Plenary speakers, chosen from among the world’s leading thinkers, offer formal presentations on topics of broad interest to the community and conference delegation.

Garden conversation
Garden Conversations are informal, unstructured sessions that allow delegates a chance to meet plenary speakers and talk with them at length about the issues arising from their presentation.

Talking circles
Held on the first day of the conference, Talking Circles offer an early opportunity to meet other delegates with similar interests and concerns. Delegates self-select into groups based on broad thematic areas and then engage in extended discussion about the issues and concerns they feel are of utmost importance to that segment of the community.

Themed paper presentations
Paper presentations are grouped by general themes or topics into sessions comprised of three or four presentations followed by group discussion.
