Dear APA colleagues,

This is time to begin the process of selecting a host for European Congress of Adapted Physical Activity EUCAPA 2016. The board directors of the EUFAPA will start selection process for EUCAPA 2016 during its next meeting beginning of 2014. At this time, we seek the draft proposals from prospective bidders.

Objectives of EUCAPA
EUFAPA aims promotion and dissemination of research in adapted physical activity and sport science, and practical application of APA services to benefit individuals with disabilities across the lifespan. The various fields of professional practice in APA include education, adaptation, inclusion, coaching, leisure, recreation, and rehabilitation. The objectives of each EUCAPA, while locally determined, must reflect the mission of EUFAPA.

A European Congress of Adapted Physical Activity (EUCAPA) is an excellent vehicle to raise local awareness, to provide an outstanding setting for local professionals to interact with world leaders in adapted physical activity, and to allow the hosting region or country to make an international contribution to adapted physical activity.

Suggested format of the conference includes two parallel sessions (maximum), preferably 3 days event. The conference language must be English, considering possibility to create parallel sessions in native language to attract APA professionals with limited ENG language skills.

Please prepare your proposal in accordance with the Guidelines for hosting a European Congress of Adapted Physical Activity ( Please, send the proposals electronically to EUFAPA secretary Aija Klavina ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
