The 4th international Congress on Soldiers’ Physical Performance (4th ICSPP) : 28 November-1 December 2017

The ICSPP is the most important international conference in applied military human performance research and therefore attracts experts from all over the world. The congress covers a broad range of disciplines including physical training programs and adaptions, occupational and physical performance, testing and assessment, injury prevention, public health and health promotion, nutritional considerations, human factors, ergonomics, equipment design, biomechanics, load carriage, gender integration issues, thermoregulation and environmental issues, deployment considerations, and psychological and cognitive factors.

The 4th ICSPP will apply a lifecycle theme whereby symposia, poster sessions and featured science sessions by international experts will be organized across key areas including recruitment, training, operational deployment and sustainment. As such, we are confident that the program will appeal not only to the military sector but also to delegates from a range of physically demanding occupations including emergency services, police, fire and ambulance. A number of interactive forums, including roundtables and think-tank discussions will be held to assist in the translation of research to practice, and the identification of research priorities across service members’ lifecycles.
