2018 Paracanoe conference - Submission for presentation

Paracanoe Conference


The Second World Conference on PARACANOE will take place in Stockholm, Sweden from Oct. 5-7, 2018. 

In 2008, the first conference in Montreal, Canada resulted in an explosion of increased activity and with Paracanoe racing being recognized as a Paralympic Sport by the International Paralympic Committee.  This conference in Stockholm aims to widen the scope of the Paracanoe Movement to include Medical Rehabilitation experts and Recreational/Tourism leaders throughout the World.  There are enormous opportunities for the paddling community and industry to work together to expand canoeing in this area. 

In this regard, the International Canoe Federation is inviting submissions of publications/presentations for inclusion in the conference programme.   The three main topic areas are:

  • Paracanoe as Sport
      • Presentations which address “Best Practices” in the areas of recruitment, adaptive equipment, high performance issues  by coaches or development managers in National Federations
  • Paracanoe as Medical Rehabilitation
      • Presentations from researchers or practitioners of rehabilitation who study or use paracanoe for rehabilitation purposes.
  • Paracanoe as Recreation/Tourism
      • Presentations which address the broad participation level from NF’s, Paddling Club leaders, National Programme leaders, paddling tourism industry professionals, waterfront planners and city recreation managers, adaptive equipment manufacturers.
