Guidelines for paper preparation

The conference will be divided in four sections; namely the plenary session, working groups (sections), poster sections and professional workshops. The plenary session will be dedicated to innovation and presented by foreign and domestic experts, whereas sections intended for paper presentations will be divided according to thematic areas. Additionally, a poster section, where speakers will present synthesis of their papers in five minutes, and as a novelty, professional workshops “Active in kindergarten and school,” which will aim at presenting examples of good practice of knowledge transfer in the focus area, will be held.

Abstracts should follow the themes of this year’s conference:

  • motor skills in the overall development of children,
  • biomechanical, physiological and medical aspects of motor development,
  • psychological, social and educational aspects of motor development of children,
  • adapted physical activity of children,
  • balanced diet and the overall development of children,
  • physical environment as an incentive for motor development of children and
  • physical activity of children.

Abstracts may be scientific or professional and must be written in English.

Abstracts must be sent to the following address: ovg@zrs-kp.si. The name of the file must comprise the name and surname of the first author (e.g. Janez_Novak.doc and Janez_Novak.pdf). When submitting two abstracts, write the serial number (eg. Janez_Novak2.doc and Janez_Novak2.pdf).

Each author may publish alone or in co-authorship a maximum of two proofread abstracts. By signing the submitted manuscript the author warrants for the authorship of the abstract and assumes full responsibility for errors in content and translation. All abstracts will be peer-reviewed before publication, if necessary; authors will be invited to make corrections or additions. Reviewers make the final decision about the type of abstracts and thematic area/section in which the abstract will be presented.
