OPENING CONFERENCE (17/09 - 19h30)
DEMOCRACY AND EMANCIPATION: CHALLENGES ON PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORTS SCIENCES IN LATIN AMERICA

Table 1 (18/09 – 9h)
CONFERENCE: "THE PLACE OF GRADUATE AND KNOWLEDGE PRODUCTION IN LATIN AMERICA: CHALLENGES ON PHYSICAL EDUCATION AND SPORTS SCIENCES"
Summary: In recent years, the field of Physical Education/Sports Sciences in Brazil has amassed several reflections on strictu-sensu Graduate Programs. In this context, we locate the contributions of the Graduate Forum of Colégio Brasileiro de Ciências do Esporte (CBCE), whose purpose is to build and consolidate a permanent and qualified space for the discussion of Graduate Programs in Physical Education/Sports Sciences in Brazil. In this edition of CONBRACE/CONICE, we bring the issue for discussion once more, emphasizing in Panel 1 an analysis of the conditions for knowledge production and graduate programs in Latin America - little of its multifaceted reality is known within Brazil. We believe that community dialogue based on historical events in these contexts allow us to have a wider research ground on the paths that can be followed in Latin American Physical Education.

Table 2 (19/09 – 9h)
CONFERENCE: "CURRENT GUIDELINE DILEMMAS ON PROFESSIONAL QUALIFICATION OF PHYSICAL EDUCATION: PRINCIPLES AND BASES OF DIVERGENT POSITIONS"
Summary: The second panel intends to discuss an issue which is not new, but recurrent in the recent history of Brazilian Physical Education. That is the dialogue established by the Brazilian National Curriculum Guidelines to qualify teachers who work in Basic Education. This reform opened doors to a broad restructuring process of the design and curricular organization of higher education. In practice this means that the undergraduate degree won "its purpose and integrality" about the Bachelor's degree, becoming a specific project. In recent months the issue resurfaced due to initiatives by the Guidelines review committee (through a Resolution Project Record which aims to institute new guidelines). These initiatives can promote new adjustments in the qualification of Physical Education teachers (sometimes causing the exclusion of Bachelor's degrees). The panel aims to discuss the "Current Guideline Dilemmas on Professional Qualification of Physical Education: Principles and Bases of Divergent Positions."

Table 3 (21/09 – 9h)
CONFERENCE: "EDUCATION AND EMANCIPATION: LIMITS AND CURRICULUM POSSIBILITIES IN BASIC EDUCATION"
Summary: Considering the changes that have occurred in Latin American society and specifically on national education systems, implementing a Physical Education curriculum has become the target of questionings, and its status as a curricular subject is the object of deep reflection in universities and basic education schools. To support this debate, research networks and cooperation between Latin American countries focused on the production of knowledge about Academic Physical Education, are being consolidated. This panel plans to debate some of the challenges faced by Physical Education teachers to advance the process of acknowledging Physical Education as an important part of school culture
