UKSCA call for scientific/applied case abstracts, oral presentations and conference grants


Friday 28th July 2023


We strongly encourage all members, students, early career researchers and established academics to share their original research, or applied case studies. The poster of your work will be on show all conference and it is a great way for you to meet others interested in your work.

We are now accepting submissions for original research and applied case study abstracts. We strongly encourage all members, students, early career researchers and established academics to submit an abstract to either the (a) original research, or (b) applied case study categories, which they feel will add value and be of interest to all those who attend the conference. We are confident that this section of the conference will draw upon the growing success of previous years, showcasing the outstanding work of our members.

This year the format for presenting work will be expanded beyond poster presentations to include oral presentations. The oral presentation format will be a 10 minute presentation of the research or case study plus 5 minutes of discussion. These sessions will take part during the main conference proceedings.

In addition, the UKSCA wishes to establish the opportunity for members to attend and network with established professionals in the industry, who may not usually attend for financial reasons. Up to 6 poster grants will be awarded, consisting of a day pass to the Friday, Saturday and Sunday of the annual conference, worth £435.

Further information:
One person may be the primary author on a maximum of two abstracts. The closing date for abstract submissions is 28th July 2023. If submitting more than one abstract, please send each on a separate form. Abstracts are considered from all scientific and research fields, in addition to any practical applied case study examples from the field of coaching and sports performance.

Those who submit abstracts will be notified regarding acceptance/rejection soon after the panel have reviewed the applications.  Authors must have booked their place at the conference (attending on at least one day) by 1st August 2023 and it is therefore assumed that funding agreement is already in place on submission.

Please note, acceptance of the abstract does not confer a free conference place - part 2 of the form must be used for those wishing to apply for a grant to attend.

Abstracts accepted will be informed of appropriate formatting requirements. For questions concerning any aspects of abstract submission, please email
