The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is organizing the first post-lockdown in-person meeting of its VISTA Conference in Cairo, Egypt from 31 October to 3 November 2023. The VISTA conference is designed to promote and advance the mission, goals, objectives, and reputation of the IPC, VISTA 2023 will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a theme of “Developing Para Sport: inclusion, transformation, and performance”. The Egyptian Paralympic Committee is hosting the conference in collaboration with the Egyptian Ministry of Youth and Sports.

VISTA provides an important international platform for scientists to exchange the latest current information, research, development, and expertise related to sports for persons with disabilities and the Paralympic Movement.  It promotes cross-disciplinary interaction among practitioners such as sport science scholars, disability inclusion scholars, sport managers, officials, coaches, athletes, sport medicine practitioners, classifiers, and sport administrators.

This will be the eleventh version of the VISTA Conference. The first VISTA Conference took place in Jasper, Canada in 1993. The success of this conference led to further conferences in Germany (1999), Sweden (2003), Germany (2006, 2011, 2013), Spain (2015), Canada (2017) and The Netherlands (2019).

Further information regarding registration, program, and conference website will be published soon.
