The Canadian Student Outdoor Education Conference (aka The Horwood Conference) is an annual event organized by and for students studying outdoor and environmental education, health and physical education, outdoor recreation, adventure leadership, experience-based learning and/or related fields. It is hosted at Queen’s University each year and held on a weekend in February. Graduate, Undergraduate, B.Ed and College students attend the Horwood Conference to present oral or poster contributions on various research topics related to outdoor education, as well as share games and learning activities, lead a variety of workshops, and attend special invited lectures. Students can choose to simply register as a conference participant or complete the attached presentation proposal form and attend as a conference presenter.
The Conference Organizing Committee is now accepting presentation proposals for the February 2017 conference. Proposals for paper presentations, posters, workshops, or creative projects will be accepted up until the submission deadline of December 16, 2016.  Silence and Solitude is the theme of this year's conference—an open or general theme chosen specifically to encourage a wide range of submissions, diverse in both format of presentation and topics related to outdoor education.
Full details of the conference, including a fillable proposal submission form, may be found at the conference webpage —  http://www.queensu.ca/skhs/graduate/conferences-and-seminars/horwood-conference
We look forward to receiving proposals and hope you will be able to join us at Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario in February 2017.
