Dear participants of the 50th Annual Meeting of The International Association for the Philosophy of Sport Conference,

During your participation to the Conference, we have arranged several tours that will take you to some of the most attractive locations in close vicinity to Split. In this way, we wanted to enable you to get to know this part of Croatia better together with its beauty of which has recently been written about by the world’s leading magazine The Guardian and The New York Times.

It is important to point out that the planned tours do not collide with the official Conference program. All participants, as well as their accompanying partners, can choose to participate in one or all of the suggested day trips. In order to provide relaxing and enjoyable moments, the number of places for individual trips is limited. So, if you decide to register for the day trip later, there might be a chance that there will be no free places anymore. In other words, later registration is possible until the day of the tour, i.e. until all available places are filled.

At the same time, it is good to know that if you choose the day trip option together with registration for the Conference, the price of the tour is more favourable than the price after registration.

For those who decide to register later, please contact the organizer via this link iaps.conference2023@gmail.com
