The topic of the body allows for a broad range of inquiry and conversation between many communities, from athletes to sociologists to grandparents to artists. The main objective of the conference is to be both organized by and inclusive of all types of bodies and disciplines. 

Undergraduate and graduate students across disciplines are encouraged to participate in the conference as a presenter or attendee.
