The purpose of this conference is to provide a forum to address critical measurement and research issues, as well as practical concerns, in sedentary behavior and health. It is hope that the conference will lead an international social movement to recognize critical threats of sedentary behavior to human health and take major steps to redesign our environment and life, and eventually eliminate sedentary behavior significantly.

Specific aims of the conference include:

-Provide updates and multidisciplinary views of sedentary behavior & health research and practice

-Address critical measurement and research challenges in sedentary behavior & health research, and explore the potential of the latest technology and methods

-Exchange of ideas concerning the latest research and practice progress in reducing sedentary behaviors

-Provide training on assessing sedentary behaviors, statistical methods of related data, and programming on reducing sedentary behaviors
