The newly formed Sport Legacies Research Collaborative (SLRC) is calling for
participation in its first Pan American Games network meeting: a two-day workshop focused on the network's emerging research and evaluation plans for the 2015 Pan American Games in Toronto. The two-day event seeks to stimulate the formation of local, national and international research collaborations within three core substantive themes identified by the SLRC for study during the Pan American Games; namely, the relationship between major games and: I) Sport for Development; 2) Sustainable Sport, Physical Activity and Health; and, 3) Healthy High Performance Sport.
The first two-day workshop on Pan American Games research will be hosted by the Faculty of Physical Education and Health between May 30-31, 2011 on the University of Toronto's St. George campus. Those interested in participating in the workshop are asked to submit a 500-word (maximum] abstract describing their research (or policy) interests and backgrounds, including a statement on how their activities fit into one of SLRC's core research areas for the Pan American Games. Abstracts establishing participant interest must be submitted by March 31, 2011. The organizing committee will review all abstracts and participants will be notified via email regarding their participation status in the
workshop by no later than April 14, 2011. Please submit abstracts as early as possible since participation in the workshop is limited. Registration for and participation in this event is free of charge.
