The largest exercise and sports science conference in the Southern Hemisphere.


Research to Practice 2020, the Exercise & Sports Science Australia biennial conference is scheduled for 2 – 4 April 2020, at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, Perth, Western Australia.


This conference is arguably one of the leading exercise and sports science conferences in the world, and we are excited to be taking it to Perth for the first time. The theme of the conference, “Research to Practice”, is close to our hearts, and we are driven to provide a program that fosters the translation of strong research-based evidence into the practice of ESSA members and accredited professionals. The conference will attract delegates from Australia and around the world, including academics and researchers, students, sport scientists, clinical exercise physiologists and practitioners.


We look forward to you joining us in Perth.


A/Prof Chris Askew, Dr Bonnie Furzer & A/Prof Shona Halson
