The 14th International Symposium for Olympic Research, will be hosted by the International Centre for Olympic Studies (ICOS) on the campus of Western University, London, Canada, on the weekend of October 12-14, 2018.
Scholars, researchers, students, and professionals interested in the socio-cultural study of the modern Olympic or Paralympic Games are invited to submit abstracts for conference presentations. Papers in the areas of history, sociology, anthropology, philosophy, political science, cultural studies, and sport management, as well as other disciplines that contribute to our cultural understanding of the Games are particularly encouraged.

In addition, world-wide electronic open-access distribution of the Proceedings is undertaken by the LA84 Foundation. Further information on the Proceedings, and the tables of contents of past Proceedings, can be found here.
The Symposium registration fee will include an electronic copy of the edited contributions on USB thumb drive; participation in all sessions including keynote presentations; access to morning and afternoon refreshments; two lunches; one opening reception (cash bar); and an evening concluding banquet.
