CONFERENCES

On this page you will find a full list of the conferences I have attended as part of my Continuing Professional Development. This list is presented in a chronological order, and it includes national and intenrational congresses, conferences, symposiums and workshops, in addition to all the certificates obtained from these events.

What's the difference between a conference, a seminar, a workshop and a symposium?

Usually, congressess and conferences are larger events, and they tend to be the most prestigious forms of meetings, while symposiums and workshops are smaller one. International conferences, such as the ACSM annual meeting in the US, and the ECSS Congress in Europe are by far the top events to attend.
