About | The Research in Imagery and Observation Annual Conference

RIO events consistently benefit from the high-quality contributions of our presenters (both oral and poster) and our delegates.

This event has a supportive and inclusive ethos, where students and early career researchers are encouraged to engage in research discussions with more experienced academics and professors. Following the success of last year's RIO event at Bielefeld University, Germany, (plus the 12 years of successful RIO events before that!) we are looking forward to receiving your abstracts and welcoming you to Teesside University in April for another enjoyable and thought-provoking event.

Invited speakers
With great pleasure we announce our two invited speakers as Dr Robert Hardwick and Dr Richard Ramsey. Their work will be of great interest, as these two academics continue to have a significant impact on imagery and observation research across the main disciplines discussed at RIO events, including: neuroscience, sport and exercise science, psychology, and movement rehabilitation.
