Dear ICAMPAM participant, We welcome you to the 4th International Conference on Ambulatory Monitoring of Physical Activity and Movement (June 9-12th 2015) in Limerick, Ireland. The University of Limerick is pleased to host this conference, and we hope that you will enjoy your time in Limerick.
We bring together leading researchers, new investigators and research students whose interests are in the measurement of physical behaviours including physical activity, sedentary behaviour and sleep. The programme includes 5 keynote speakers, 10 invited speakers, 44 slide presentations and 161 poster presentations. This is a global conference, with attendees from across Europe, North and South America, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and New Zealand. We believe that this conference will lead to valuable and stimulating discussion. We encourage you to attend the special session on at 10.30-11.45 AM on Thursday 11th June where the exhibitors will have the opportunity to present on their products. We also recommend that you attend the International Society for the Measurement of Physical Behaviours (ISMBP) formation meeting, to be held on Wednesday evening.
Social events include the opening reception on Tuesday evening in the University of Limerick sports Pavilion, and the banquet celebration on Thursday evening in the Strand Hotel in Limerick city centre. Lunches and coffee breaks will also provide an opportunity for you to meet colleagues and to network. For those who are staying over on Friday afternoon, we have organised a bus tour to the Cliffs of Moher and Doolin in County Clare.
Our hosting of the conference would not be possible without the help and support of a good number of people. These include the board of directors of the ISMPB, the conference Scientific Committee, and especially the members of the Local Organising Committee, whose work has brought this conference about. Thanks is due to DJ Collins from the Department of Physical Education and Sport Sciences for his work leading up to and during the conference. We would also like to thank the 22 University of Limerick students who have worked on the conference preparations and will be helping during the conference.
On behalf of the Local Organising Committee and the Scientific Committee, welcome to ICAMPAM 2015.
ICAMPAM 2015 Chair
