Dear Colleagues and Sports Science Enthusiasts,
We are delighted to welcome you to the 19th Congress of the Austrian Sports Science Association, hosted by the Department of Sport Science in Innsbruck from September 26th-28th 2024. During this congress, we will focus on the theme, "Embracing Interdisciplinarity in Sports Science." Let’s take this opportunity to engage in constructive discussions and collaborative efforts to address current challenges in sports science with innovative and interdisciplinary solutions.
Set against the stunning backdrop of the Tyrolean Alps at the Department of Sports Science in Innsbruck, we gather to exchange, network, learn, socialize, and celebrate sports science in Austria and beyond.
Here's what you can look forward to at this congress:
Our theme underscores the importance of integrating diverse perspectives from various disciplines within sports science. Our assembly of distinguished keynote speakers reflects this idea and their experiences, ideas, and visions can provide guidance and inspiration as we tackle current challenges.
Explore the latest research findings and advancements in sports science. Together, we delve into innovative studies that hold the potential to address and overcome current issues in sports science.
A central mission of the ÖSG is to support the next generation of sports scientists. Specialized young investigator sessions, extended abstract formats, and support of interdisciplinary research teams are designed to cater to the needs of young investigators, empowering them to drive solutions to current challenges.
Connect with your colleagues and make new connections with researchers, professionals, and students who share your passion for sports science. This congress provides a platform for building and maintaining meaningful relationships, sharing insights and updates, and for having a good time.
Your valuable contributions will be curated and published by the international platinum open-access journal Current Issues in Sports Science to make them accessible to other researchers and the public.
The 2024 Congress of the Austrian Sports Science Association is a platform for scientific exchange, problem-solving, constructive learning, and collaboration. We are excited for you to join us in Innsbruck.
