IOC calls for world conference proposals

The International Olympic Committee (IOC) in July called for proposals for its 2017 IOC World Conference on Prevention of Injury & Illness in Sport.

The committee also announced a new location and dates for the 2017 world conference, which is scheduled for March 16-18 in Monaco.

The three-day program will include keynote lectures, symposia, debates, and other events focusing on sports injury prevention for different sports and different injury types, including studies on intervention methods, epidemiology, risk factors, and injury mechanisms.

Proposals for keynote lectures, symposia, head-to-head debates, and workshops are due by November 2.
