The proposed conference will make a sincere effort in the aforesaid direction to promote result-oriented approach in the defined areas. It will be an interface between professionals and academia to address key issues of progress in sports and exercise science and the challenges faced by sports professionals, researchers and academicians.


Sikkim is a landlocked hill station in the Himalayan terrain. The state borders Nepal to the East, China's Tibet Autonomous Region to the North and East, and Bhutan to the Southeast, while the state of West Bengal lies to the South. Sikkim was a British protectorate, before merging with the Indian Union following a referendum in 1975. With around 7,00,000 population as of 2021, it is the least populous state in the country. Sikkim is nonetheless geographically diverse due to its strategic location in the Himalayas; the climate ranges from subtropical to high alpine; and Kanchenjunga, the world's third-highest peak, is located on Sikkim's border with Nepal. It proves itself to be a tourism hotspot owing to its culture, natural scenery, hill beauty, and biodiversity.
