Conference report book of abstracts: The International Conference on Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Equality and Diversity in Sports (ICMPEDS)
The book of abstracts (ISBN: 978-84-18321-32-0; DOI:10.26754/uz.978-84-18321-32-0) is intended to leave traces of the works of the International Conference on “Multidisciplinary Perspectives on Equality and Diversity in Sports (ICMPEDS)”, organized by the GESPORT research group with the support of the Erasmus+ Program of the European Union, from 14 to 16 July 2021. The publication of the abstracts also allows those who have not followed the work of the conference to benefit from the debate that the latter has initiated regarding a wide range of issues related to gender issues in sport. The book therefore aims to be a long-term tool for disseminating the results of the conference and raising public awareness on the topics covered and in the GESPORT project in general. It is an intellectual product intended to be disseminated to the public in the widest possible sense and therefore not limited to the scientific community.
The book of abstracts includes all the abstracts accepted and presented at the International Conference (ICMPEDS). The acceptance of the abstracts was subject to a referee process by the members of the Scientific Committee of the Conference with the aim of excluding contributions that were not relevant to the objectives of the GESPORT project and to the topics covered by the Conference. The GESPORT research group also considered subordinating the publication of the abstracts to their actual presentation during the Conference to avoid any opportunistic behaviour and to ensure that each published contribution has actually given rise to a debate and exchange of ideas and opinions during the course of the Conference.
The prologue and information on the plenary sessions are reported in all project languages (Italian, English, Spanish, Turkish and Portuguese). The abstracts, divided into academic, professional, personal and institutional, are reported both in their original language and in English in order to promote the maximum possible dissemination of the contents.
There are two press news items related to the book of abstracts:
“More than 300 people participate in the forum on equality in sport: The international congress receives 150 papers from various countries” (Alicia Royo, Diario de Teruel, July 15, 2021).
“The congress on equality in sport is postponed” (Isabel Muñoz, Diario de Teruel, April 16, 20).
Conference book of papers: Multidisciplinary perspectives on equality and diversity in sports
The conference book of papers “Multidisciplinary perspectives on equality and diversity in sports” (ISBN: 978-84-18321-44-3, DOI: 10.26754/uz.978-84-18321-44-3) is a collection of the best papers presented at the International Conference of the same name (ICMPEDS), organized by the GESPORT research group with the support of the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, held from 14 to 16 July 2021. The book aims to be a long-term means of disseminating the scientific contributions that have emerged from the Conference. Therefore, unlike the book of abstracts, which is intended to raise public awareness and is aimed at the widest possible audience, the book of papers is specifically addressed to the scientific community and has the purpose of disseminating relevant results related to the topics of the Conference.
The GESPORT project team selected from all the academic abstracts presented during the conference, those that presented the greatest scientific rigour and that were most relevant to the project’s themes. This has resulted in less than 10% of accepted abstracts being identified as worthy of publication once developed into full papers.
The volume was published in 2022 in the form of an e-book and is available for free download from the ZAGUAN repository of the University of Zaragoza.
