Please join us for this exciting event which will bring together researchers and practitioners from around the globe exploring sport expertise and applied skill acquisition. Interested researchers (and graduate students!) are encouraged to contact Dr. Joe Baker (bakerj@yorku.ca) or Dr. Nikki Hodges (nicola.hodges@ubc.ca) for additional details. If you are interested in presenting; we anticipate 2 sessions broadly divided on “Expert Performance”, with a focus on perceptual-cognitive skills in sport and “Expertise Development”  (~15 min, each session with allocated discussion time). Presentations can be idea-based or data-based and we encourage student presentations as well as those from more seasoned researchers (debate is welcomed!). We also welcome discussion on sports-application. Abstracts (max 250 words) to be sent directly to Joe or Nikki (by Feb 15th 2016). The details of the talk can complement but should not replicate presentations for the main NASPSPA conference.   Please note: the main conference abstract submission deadline is Jan 15th 2016. Directions to the Olympic Stadium from the conference hotel will be posted on the NASPSPA website.
