  • Special Interest Group about fatigue during prolonged exercise

    Dear colleague,

    The aim of this email is to present a new Special Interest Group about
    "fatigue during prolonged exercise" that could help us to develop exchanges
    on this topic, both during congresses and in a virtual way (web site,
    exchange of papers & data, ...).

    It is expected that researchers from different scientific backgrounds
    (psychology, physiology, neuro-physiology, biomechanics, motor control,
    muscle biology, biochemistry, ...) will discuss about the mecanisms of
    fatigue during prolonged exercises and the way to minimise it.

    Since fatigue is a very large resarch field, some first limits could be
    suggested :
    - acute fatigue (thus not overtraining)
    - mainly human exercise in which aerobic metabolism is the major energy
    system implied. No superior limits (ultra-endurance)
    - fundamental researches about fatigue mechanisms & applied research on
    fatigue in all endurance sports : running (track and field, road, trail),
    cycling, hiking, nordic walking, cycling, swimming, cross-country skiing,
    triathlon, kayaking, rowing, orienteering, ... However, it would not be a
    group dedicated to endurance sports in general (e.g. not the place to talk
    about training methodology).
    - studies about equipment allowing a fatigue reduction and clinic research
    could be integrated.

    We are already working on the web site. If you are interested, please email
    ( your :
    - Name :
    - Institution :
    - Title :
    - Have you published on this topic ? If yes, give the references of your 3
    major publications or better, email the pdf.
    - Would you intend to be an active member or only to follow the exchanges
    developed by this group ?
    - Are you aware of the existence of a group working on a topic similar to
    this one ?

    Please write if you have any question or suggestion. And please forward this
    email to your colleagues who could be interested by this group.

    Sincerely yours,

    Guillaume Millet
