ECSS Malmö 2015 – Scandinavia at its best

Dear colleague,

On behalf of the European College of Sport Science, Malmö University together with Lund University and Copenhagen University, we are pleased to invite you to join us for the 20th annual Congress of the European College of Sport Science

ECSS Malmö 2015


The hosts of the 2015 congress are once again experts in sport science. The Malmö University with the support of the two other highly respected universities of Copenhagen and Lund, have created an extraordinary scientific programme. The invited programme demonstrates the current state of the research in the field of sport and exercises sciences. There are several interesting topics to choose from and the programme is nicely spiced up with a strong Scandinavian expertise.

Invited Scientific Programme

In 2015, the multidisciplinary ECSS Congress will be celebrating its 20th anniversary. The 2015 congress theme of Sustainable Sport will permeate the academic programme as well as the arrangements: the three universities co-hosting the event all emphasise sustainability in education and research, and will work together with the City of Malmö, a fair trade city, to make ECSS 2015 a sustainable sport congress. The Öresund Region (Malmö, Copenhagen and Lund) is an academically vital area with 150 000 university students and more than 12 000 researchers, among them top class scholars within the many different areas of Sport Sciences and Sport Studies.

The ECSS congress especially emphasises exchange of knowledge through oral, mini-oral and e-poster presentations, and we are convinced that all attendees will find plenty of topics to interest them. Once again, the Young Investigators Award will be one of the highlights of the congress.

We look forward to seeing you all in Malmö and the Öresund Region, an area with tremendous social, political, and economic potential - emphasizing sustainability. Together, we will create an outstanding conference, where we shall develop the broad perspective of sustainable sport.
