HEALTH ACROSS LIFESPAN (HAL) International conference on healthiness and fitness across the lifespan
12. September 2018 bis 15. September 2018
Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg and the Centre of Neurodegenerative Diseases Magdeburg
Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg
In response to numerous requests, the abstract deadline for the "Health Across Lifespan" (HAL), which will take place from September 12–15, 2018 at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, Germany has been extended to April 24, 2018 Use the chance to be part of the versatile programme by submitting an abstract by April 24, 2018 to one of the main topics.
On behalf of the organising committee of the “International conference on healthiness and fitness across the lifespan” (HAL 2018) at the Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg, and on behalf of the European Group for Research into Elderly and Physical Activity (EGREPA) we would like to invite you to an important scientific event in Magdeburg.
Technical advances over the last few years have inspired researchers to test and validate earlier theories of motor and mental development, learning and age-related functional decline.
Physical activity has been suggested to be one of the most important factors for increasing motor and mental abilities in childhood and for promoting fitness and healthiness across the life span. Also lifestyle factors, healthy eating and physical activity, may counteract the progression of age-related cognitive, physical and neurophysiological deficits. The conference offers an opportunity for scientists from different fields such as sport and health science, neuroscience, medicine, physiology, nutrition, gerontology, cognitive science but also for teachers, clinicians, and practitioners to present new findings and to engage in discussions relevant to the topic of “healthiness and fitness across the life span”. It is an unprecedented challenge to explore the processes of motor and mental development and to cooperate across disciplines in order to recommend successful strategies.
We hope you will enjoy the conference and you will find stimulating input for your own future research and work.
