BASES-FEPSAC Conference 2017 in Nottingham
The joint FEPSAC conference in cooperation with the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences (BASES), will take place in Nottingham, UK, on November 28 and 29, 2017. The two-day conference with approximately 500 delegates offers the possibility to share your research, receive valuable feedback, network and make future contacts.
