This theme issue of BJSM presents key papers from the 3rd International Conference on Ambulatory Monitoring of Physical Activity and Movement (ICAMPAM). The July 2013 conference was hosted by the University of Massachusetts and was attended by researchers, clinicians, students and technology vendors for North America, Europe, Australasia and Asia.

Delegates from a wide range of academic disciplines and professions, including sports medicine, computer science and engineering, statistics, exercise science, rehabilitation science, and health promotion presented symposia and papers addressing five broad conference themes: (1) behaviour and health outcomes; (2) data processing, statistics and computation science; (3) validation and calibration; (4) engineering and tool development and (5) clinical applications.

ICAMPAM was a truly unique scientific meeting in that it provided an international forum for the dissemination of cutting edge multidisciplinary research related to the measurement of physical activity and sedentary behaviours in daily life. While the focus of the conference was primarily methodological, the resultant advances in measurement technology have immediate and positive impacts on clinical and public …
