25-28 SEPTEMBER, 1997.
We are pleased to announce the 1st International Scientific
Conference "KINESIOLOGY - PRESENT AND FUTURE", to be held from 25th
to 28th September, 1997 in Dubrovnik, Croatia. The Conference is
intended to act as a forum for fostering interactions among
researchers in the scientific field of kinesiology. This Conference
is organised by the Faculty of Physical Education, University of
Zagreb and Croatian Society for Theoretical and Experimental
Kinesiology and will be held under exclusive patronage of Croatian
Academy of Sciences and Arts. It is scheduled to be held on a
regular basis biannually in Dubrovnik - jewel town recognised as
the town of world cultural legacy.

It has been increasingly recognised over recent years that
there are multiple research paradigms in our scientific field, as
well as various theoretical frameworks and accordingly many
different names. Etymologically, kinesiology is science of (human)
movement. Belonging to the broader domain of anthropology, the
kinesiology, according to our views, is primarily aimed at the laws
governing the exercise processes, as well as a variety of
consequences which those processes might have on humans.
Kinesiological inference is indispensable for the prospect of the
environmental adaptation to everyday life, elite sports performance
and working conditions by improvement and optimal development of
many relevant human characteristics, abilities and skills.

Special tribute will be paid to the 140th anniversary of the
first recorded mentioning of the term KINESIOLOGY (Dally, N.:
Cinesiologie ou science du mouvement, Librarie centrale des
sciences, Paris, 1857.).

Conference topics are planned to be covered in two main
1) Kinesiology - present and future, with subtopics:
=09=B7 definition and delineation of our scientific field,
=09=B7 inter/cross/trans/disciplinarity in kinesiology,
=09=B7 measurement standardisation and instrumentation,
=09=B7 experimental designs and data analysis.
2) Applied kinesology with subtopics dealing with domains of:
=09=B7 physical education,
=09=B7 elite sports,
=09=B7 recreation, and
=09=B7 kinesiotherapy.

Manuscripts which elaborate practical or theoretical aspects
for the advancement of kinesiology as a science are especially
desired. Presentation forms are planned to be: plenary sessions,
oral presentations, poster sessions and round tables. The official
language of the conference will be English. Each submission will be
reviewed by two conference=92s scientific program committee members
on the basis of manuscripts relevance, originality and clarity.
Papers which will be accepted and presented at the conference will
appear in a Conference proceedings book. The invited lectures will
be published as a special issue of KINEZIOLOGIJA journal. Scholars,
professionals, and students are cordially invited to participate.
Steering committee welcomes those organisations which may wish
to partly sponsor the conference.
Further details listing: conference registration, program,
deadlines, guidelines for submissions will be available in a CALL
FOR PAPERS to appear in October 1996.
