Ninth International Symposium for Olympic Research


[ILLUSTRATION OMITTED]

To Colleagues World-wide, it gives the International Centre for Olympic Studies (ICOS) great pleasure to announce its 9th Biennial International Symposium for Olympic Research to be held in Beijing, People's Republic of China on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, August 5, 6, 7, 2008, immediately before the opening of the Games of the 29th Olympiad in Beijing on August 8th. The 9th Symposium will be hosted jointly by ICOS and Beijing's Capital University of Physical Education. The Symposium's theme, Construction, Deconstruction, and Reconstruction: Discourses on Olympic Socio-Cultural Matters, focuses on research studies dealing with the history, sociology, anthropology, and philosophy of the Modern Olympic Movement. ICOS will be responsible for the academic program, including the edited Proceedings, which, customarily, are published prior to the Symposium and circulated at the opening of the event. Capital University will be responsible for "on-site" logistics, including symposium venues, accommodation in the University's hotel ($60 US per night per room--twin beds, TV, private bathroom, air-conditioned) during the Symposium and, if desired, for the Olympic Games themselves (at the same rate), some meals, airport pick-up and delivery on arrival and departure, help in securing Olympic Games events tickets, and Symposium opening and closing ceremonies and accompanying entertainments. The Symposium registration fee is $250 US and includes a copy of the fully Edited Proceedings, ground transportation to and from the airport, admission to all Symposium sessions, including opening ceremonies and reception, coffee break amenities, two luncheons, Symposium banquet, and finally, possible complimentary tickets to the final dress rehearsal of the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympic Games themselves. …
