Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology Annual Scientific Conference

The University of Western Ontario is set to host Canadas largest exercise science summit the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology (CSEP) Annual Scientific Conference.

The four-day, multidiscipline event runs from Wednesday, November 14 through Saturday, November 17 at the London Convention Centre, for the most part, in the main level theatre.

Many of the countrys leading thinkers in the fields of physiology, biochemistry, nutrition and training will participate in 14 symposia to discuss a variety of topics including:

  • Caffeine, Coffee, Exercise and Health Explores the actions of caffeine in the body and how it can enhance exercise performance, Thursday, November 15, 2 to 3:45 p.m.

  • Heart Disease, Diet and a Little Bit of Sex Examines how various cellular adaptations affect regular exercise and how these changes protect your heart, Friday November 16, 8 to 9:45 a.m.

  • Muscle Metabolism Across the Lifespan (effects on aged muscle) Investigates how we respond differently to exercise training as we age, Friday, November 16, 2:15 to 3:15 p.m.

  • Physical Adaptations to High Intensity (elite athlete) Interval Training Debates whether intense, intermittent exercise training is better than traditional training for performance enhancement, Friday, November 16, 2:30 to 5:30 p.m.

  • Whole Body Vibration Exercise: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly Analyzes the concept that passive exercise really is beneficial, Saturday, November 17, 8:30 to 10:15 a.m.

  • Exercise for Special Populations: Diabetes, Weight Management (including Youth Obesity) and Hypertension Studies the role of exercise as treatment for the most common diseases in Canada, Saturday, November 17, 10:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.

An estimated 200 original research studies will also be delivered in brief 10 minute presentations, each followed by five minute audience reaction sessions.

PUBLIC FORUM: On Saturday, November 17 from 3:30 to 6 p.m. in Salon C, D and E, the Science of Ice Hockey Symposium will feature E.J. McGuire, NHL Director of Central Scouting. McGuire will share his thoughts on What it takes to get to the NHL. A series of studies will also be presented during the event, highlighting experiences of Major Junior A hockey players, as well as members of the 2006-07 Canadian Junior World Championship team. Cost is $8 for adults, $4 for students and $15 for families.

This meeting is designed for those with training in exercise science but several of the symposia will be appropriate for people in the community, as well. The hockey symposium, in particular, on Saturday afternoon is designed for the London community as a whole and hopefully, it will attract hockey players, teams, moms, dads, even whole families, says Peter Lemon, chair of the local organizing committee, a kinesiology professor in Westerns Faculty of Health Sciences and the Director of its Exercise Nutrition Laboratory. It will be a good mix of down-to-earth advice and science and a great opportunity for those interested in what they need to get to the highest level, as well as what science can do to help get there.
