Victoria University’s Institute of Sport, Exercise and Active Living hosted the 1st Asia-Pacific Football and Futsal Seminar last weekend.
The Twitter # for the event was #APFFS.
I was able to attend one presentation at the Seminar but did follow events through Twitter.
This post is a brief account of #APFFS and those who shared their experiences of the Seminar.
There was an early tweet from Victoria University about the Seminar late last year:

The Seminar started on 4 April and the volume of tweets increased throughout the seminar and included photos too. Both organisers, Fabio Serpiello and Matthew Varley tweeted and there was a generic FootballVU account too that updated news.
Tweets came from:
- Cathy Olivia
- Rob Aughey
- Martin Buchheit
- Jessica Dudley
- Tom Lovell
- Simone Ripamonti
- Alice Sweeting
- Josh Ward
- Sam Howe
- Weiliang Chung
- Elnaz Nozohour
- Tom Eaton
- Alireza E
- Les Street
- Andrew Murray
Tom Lovell‘s was one of the last tweets on Sunday afternoon:

I was interested to see how engaged many of the PhD students at the Seminar were and that a number of tweets came from relatively recent Twitter accounts. There were seasoned tweeters too.
My overriding interest is in how groups come together and share. I am delighted that the inaugural Seminar did have a #tag to connect participants synchronously and asynchronously.
