Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
16-17 July, 2014
The Sport and Society knowledge community is brought together by a common concern for scientific policy and strategic perspective in sport and society.
We are inviting proposals for paper presentations, workshops/interactive sessions, posters/exhibits, or colloquia (See Proposal Types), addressing one of the following themes through the lense of the intersection of Sport and Society:
- Sporting Cultures and Identities
- Sports Education
- Sport and Health
- Sports Management and Commercialization
- Special Focus for 2014: Sport and Development
For more information about the ideas and themes underlying this community, see Our Focus. Proposal ideas that extend beyond these thematic areas will also be considered.
Virtual participation is available for those who are unable to attend the conference in person. Proposals for virtual presentations may be submitted at any time, up to the start of the conference. All conference registrants (in-person and virtual) may also submit their written papers for publication in the journal that supports this knowledge community.

Sport and Society in Rio de Janeiro
The Sport and Society conference is hosted by UNIVERSO - Universidade Salgado de Oliveira in Niterói, Rio de Janeiro. The conference is excited to visit Rio de Janeiro mere days after the exciting conclusion to the 2014 FIFA World Cup. It is a prime time to explore the relationship of sport and society through our many thematic lenses, and especially the influence of Sport and Development, which is one of our special themes for the 2014 event.
