Call for abstracts

Individuals and groups are invited to submit an abstract on any topic related to walking, particularly looking at the theme of “Dollars & Sense of Walking”.

We are looking for as many high-quality presentations as possible, and will select and group these to present an exciting, thought provoking programme. We aim to bring together people and presenters with different perspectives to stimulate debate and encourage the spread of ideas. To ensure all those attending this conference have a sense of involvement and action, we plan to provide opportunities for interactive workshops / walkshops and other fun events throughout the conference, therefore we welcome your contributions and innovative ideas.

Please note if you are accepted as a presenter then you will be required to register to attend the conference.  There are no discounts available for Presenters.
