Welcome Message From Adviser, APCESS 2017
It is with great excitement that we anticipate the dynamic pairing of the 8th Asia-Pacific Conference on Exercise and Sports Science (APCESS 2017) and the 7th International Conference on Sport and Exercise Science (ICSES 2017). The Organizing Committee is to be recognized and commended for their collaborative efforts distinguished by innovative thinking and deliverable transformative strategies. Hosted in Bangkok, Thailand, on June 14-16, 2017, at the Twin Tower hotel, the conference is anticipated for examining local to global best practices and implementation of healthy living examples.
APCESS 2017 conference theme is identified as “Innovation and Healthy Living for Sustainability”. Topics for discussion will include unusual approaches and opportunities for physical activity; sport performance, risk-reduction and biomechanics; interactive technology; the shrinking demarcation of divisible role and responsibility between corporate and not-for-profit entities; environmental, behavior engagement, hospitalization, and age-related considerations on health and quality of life; muscle degeneration and cardiovascular and metabolic disease implications; sport and athlete training and therapies. Asst. Prof. Siriporn Sasimontonkul, Dean, Faculty of Sports Science, Kasetsart University, is shepherding the Organizing Committee to highlight proven strategies derived from an interdisciplinary and comprehensive approach to deliver individual and community health and wellness. This serves as a continued emphasis and call-to-action first articulated by Secretary General Ban and further adopted by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) and World Health Organization (WHO), 2016.
Playing a leadership role on the global stage committed to substantive and sustainable change in individual and community health, APCESS 2017 is the ideal platform for scholars, researchers and university affiliations to interact, examine, and steer future trajectory. 19 internationally renowned speakers representing 12 countries have lent support to this historical conference marked by collaborative efforts between the Asia Pacific region and the international community to create a global health network.
For two and half days conference attendees will have ample opportunity to attend group sessions and personally interact and exchange with colleagues and speakers. We are confident that you will readily feel as we do the warmth and hospitality of the Thai people, and have time to enjoy its sunny and beautiful beaches, ancient culture and delicious cuisine.
I look forward to personally greeting you in Bangkok in June, 2017, and anticipate our shared and change-producing experience.
