ARU is excited to host the BASES Student Conference 2023 at our Cambridge campus.

We are delighted to welcome you to the 21st BASES Student Conference being held in the historic city of Cambridge and hosted by Anglia Ruskin University.

The conference will take place across 24 and 25 April 2023 and is centred around the theme of Reflections from the Past Driving the Future in Sport & Exercise Science.

The conference will provide an opportunity for you to engage with peers from across the UK through keynote, oral, poster and symposia-based presentations, as well as during our extensive social events.

2023 marks a historic milestone within exercise science as it represents the centenary of the publication of the seminal work by A.V. Hill on maximal oxygen uptake (VO2max), work that was completed here in Cambridge. It is from this historic perspective that our conference has emerged.

We therefore hope you can join us in celebrating the next generation of sport and exercise scientists whilst reflecting on the journey that our discipline has gone through.
