Every year, the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill hosts the College Sport Research Institute (CSRI) Conference. Its stated mission is to “Provide students, scholars, and college-sport practitioners a public forum to discuss relevant and timely intercollegiate-athletics issues.” For information regarding panel discussions and attendees from the 2011 CSRI Conference, click here.
The 2012 CSRI Conference will be held April 19-21, 2012, and the organizers are currently accepting the submission of abstracts (single-spaced, 400-word maximum for 30 min presentations and 800-word maximum for 65 min presentations) for review.
The deadline for submissions is January 20, 2012.
In order for your abstract to be appropriately considered for acceptance, it must reflect college-sport research on the history of intercollegiate athletics, social-cultural college-sport issues, legal theory or the application of law to college-sport issues, business-related issues in college sport, or special topics related to current college-sport issues.
Abstracts should be submitted in Microsoft Word documents and sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have also attached the registration form for anyone who wishes to attend the event, whether they wish to submit an abstract for review or not.
