Building the Future Common Wealth of Cycling.

Version Espanol


27, 28 and 29 September 2010

Deakin University, Waterfront Campus,

Geelong, Victoria, Australia.

Presented by the Alfred Deakin Research Institute and the Deakin University School of Law and School of History, Heritage and Society.

In association with the International Network of Humanistic Doping Research (INHDR).

The Conference Objectives.

The conference will coincide with the World Cycling Championships to be held in Geelong which start on Wednesday 29 September 2010 and continue until the Men’s Road Race on Sunday 3 October 2010.

The purpose of the conference is to bring together cyclists, administrators, academics and others interested in the future direction of professional cycling and the problems the sport faces as changes occur within the process of its globalisation.

Presentations and papers.

The conference will be multidisciplinary in its approach and papers and presentations are invited from cyclists, administrators, social scientists, lawyers, philosophers and scientists on any topic affecting the present and future direction of professional cycling.

Such issues might include and be related to the globalisation of pro cycling, health, science and medicine, ethics and the philosophy of cycling, cycling lore and law, the economics of pro cycling, the politics and logistics of race organisation, and technology and rules development.

The conference will also aim to create a space for break out and policy advocacy sessions bringing together interested stakeholders and experts.

Publication of conference papers is currently being negotiated with appropriate publishers. We would also envisage where appropriate publishing papers online.
The conference will also mark the presentation of the Deakin University Law School’s Research Project “Doping and Australian Professional Cycling: Attitudes, Issues and a Pathway to a New Approach.”

Accommodation and logistics.

For the purpose of conference planning if you are interested in attending the conference or giving a paper at the conference please contact Martin Hardie, School of Law, Deakin University as soon as possible as we envisage that accommodation will become increasingly difficult to obtain as a result of the World Championships.
