The ICSD Reform Symposium in Brazil

Rebecca ADAM, ICSD President

Dear ICSD Members and Athletes,

I trust this message finds you well.

Over the last few weeks, you will have viewed videos about the key proposed changes to ICSD governance that have come out of the ICSD Reform Commission. There will be more similar videos coming your way over the next few weeks.

The ICSD Executive Board and members of the ICSD Reform Commission believe it is vital that there is engagement and communication across the ICSD community about these proposed changes.

It is with pleasure that I advise that the ICSD Executive Board have approved the hosting of the 2nd ICSD Reform Symposium. Many of you will remember the first symposium that was held in Croatia.

The ICSD Reform Symposium will be held in Brazil in the south on 13 and 14 April 2019.

All members are invited to attend the Symposium. It is hoped that many of you will be able to participate in this important event.

We were keen to release details of the symposium as soon as we could in order to provide you with sufficient time to plan for the symposium.

Gustavo Perazzolo will be providing additional logistical details in a follow-on video.

Thank you. I look forward to seeing many of you at the 2nd ICSD Reform Symposium!


Dear ICSD members and athletes,

As you will be aware, Brazil will be hosting the ICSD Reform Symposium between 12 and 15 April 2019. The symposium will be in the city of Caxias Do Sul, in the south of Brazil.

The following are details to assist with travel and accommodation.

There are three different air-travel routes that can be taken.

1. Flights can be taken directly to Sao Paulo or Rio for a transfer to the closest airport which is the Porto Alegre (POA) terminal.  

2. Direct flights to Porto Alegre can be taken from Portugal.

3. Direct flights to Porto Alegre can also be taken from Sao Paulo.

Symposium organisers will meet you at the Porto Alegre terminal for transfer to the hotel.


In terms of hotel accommodation, single, double or triple bedded rooms will be available. There is an increase to the room charge with each additional bed that there is in your room.

Booking forms will be sent to all ICSD members shortly.

I look forward to seeing as many of you in Brazil.
