Dear colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the International Conference on Movement: Brain, Body and Cognition to be held at the University of Paris/La Sorbonne in 31 August to 2 September 2022. This is the fourth iteration of the conferences on this topic previously held at Oxford University, Harvard Medical School, and Tel Aviv University.

The aim of the conference is to share knowledge on the relation of human movement to cognitive function and to establish dialogue between professionals from different disciplines.  The focus this year, among other things, will be on the Brain-Gut connection and Movement, Development and Aging, the Neuropsychology of cognitive-motor interaction (evaluation and treatment), Physical Education as a tool for cognitive improvement, Gender issues in Movement and Cognition and other focus areas. As usual, the general conference topic areas will also include application to rehabilitation and therapeutics, sport, motor learning, brain-behavior relationships, traumatic brain injury, gait and cognition, and dance.

We welcome your attendance at this conference.  Should you, in addition, desire to present your research, special technique or clinical experiences, kindly send your abstract to the attention of the scientific committee at: [email protected] after which it will undergo review for inclusion in the program. The accepted abstracts will be published in the Conference Proceedings as well as selected papers published in the journal Brain, Body Cognition.

The format for abstracts is available on the conference website and will include oral and poster presentations as well as symposia, panel discussions, and workshops. Deadline for abstract submission is 30 June 2022, and please don’t wait until the last minute.

It is not obligatory to submit or present an abstract. You can join us and participate in this conference without submitting an abstract or presenting something. However if you do wish to present – submit your abstract now.

We welcome to this conference both researchers and practitioners since professional dialogue and mutual understanding are the basic of all scientific progress.  Present your work at the conference or just attend, listen and participate. Because If the topics talks to you – you are part of us, and you are welcome.
