Member proposals invited for BASES Conference 2021 programme

25th January 2021


As part of our commitment to expand the breadth of content at BASES Conference 2021 (at the King Power Stadium, Leicester* on 16-17 November) and enable greater input from the membership, we are inviting BASES professional and overseas members to submit proposals for invited parallel sessions. This year, up to two parallel invited sessions in the BASES Conference 2021 programme will be from proposals submitted by members. Parallel invited sessions will be either invited lectures (one presenter) or invited symposia (two presenters). Sessions with more than one presenter should aim to cover both the fundamental science and high quality applied work. All applications for invited symposia should demonstrate the potential to provoke good discussion with BASES delegates.

All submissions will be considered by the BASES Scientific Programme Committee, who will select the successful proposals based on topicality and interest to members. The lead presenter must be a professional member of BASES and must be available to present at the BASES Conference on either 16 or 17 November 2020.

BASES will cover the delegate fees for the BASES Conference (two-day non-residential package) and the Conference Gala Dinner for up to two presenters (per session).

BASES welcomes proposals across all sport and exercise disciplines. Proposals are particularly welcomed that involve fundamental research and/or applied practice of an inter-disciplinary and/or collaborative nature. This is an excellent opportunity to deliver your research and share insight with a wide audience of peers at BASES flagship CPD event.

To submit your proposal please complete the proposal form and email to The deadline for submitting proposals is noon on Friday 19 February 2021.
