The Korean Academy of Kinesiology (KAK) would like to inform you that we are hosting 2020 International Conference on Kinesiology (ICK2020) in conjunction with the 21st Annual Meeting of Kinesiologists who were members of the Korean Association of Certified Exercise Professionals (KACEP) and the Federation of Korean Special Kinesiologist (FKSK). As face-to-face activities are restricted due to the spread of COVID-19, the event will be conducted entirely online. All presentations will be made via video or e-Poster, and questions and answers will be conducted in real time through Zoom Meeting.

The theme of this conference is “The Role of Kinesiologists in the Era of Aging Society with Low Fertility Rate”.

The rapid aging of the population is causing a huge social problem as the number of population who can support the elderly is greatly decreasing. Now, while re-examining the role of a kinesiologists as a troubleshooter, renowned scholars from around the world will be invited to present and discuss the results of their research with domestic kinesiologists. Through this competition, we are trying to develop a new direction of post-Corona-era for kinesiology and redefine the status of kinesiologists, so please participate in this conference.

Thank you.
Kang Shin-beom (Korea Maritime University), President of the ICK2020 organizing committee
Kim Ki-jin (Keimyung University), President of the Korea Academy of Kinesiology
Cho Ji-hoon (Singyeong University), President of the Federation of Korean Special Kinesiologist
