The Keynote Lecture/Tutorial is to be named and presented in honor of a past-president of CSEP and is titled the ‘APNM – President’s Lecture’ in recognition of the past president’s contributions to the society and to the field of exercise physiology. The recipient who honors the past-president shall give a lecture at the annual conference and will submit a review paper on the topic of the lecture to APNM within the three months of the lecture. Canadian Science Publishing will provide an honorarium of $1,000 at the time of submission of the manuscript. The publisher will also provide a certificate acknowledging the recipient receiving the award, to be presented at the awards ceremony.
A list of the previous presenters can be found here.
The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) will select a past president to be honored and submit nominations for a presenter to honor the selected past-president (with a brief CV and rationale) for approval to the Board of Directors not less than six months prior to the AGM. The Board of Directors may also submit nominations. The decision by the Board will be communicated to the Editor of APNM who would notify the publisher of the decision.
The selection criteria will include the following:
- The recipient must be an internationally established scholar
- Must have made a significant contribution to an area of study
- Must be willing to write (and submit) their paper to APNM within three months of the AGM
It is expected that the recipient will be a strong supporter of CSEP and will have a history of membership in the Canadian Society for Exercise Physiology.
Normally, the current CSEP President, or designate, will introduce the speaker, who will begin with remarks honoring the past-president of whose work they will be recognizing. The topic of the lecture or tutorial will reflect a field of study for which the past-president being honored was known. Travel expenses of the speaker will be covered by the conference budget.
