Welcome to Malmö

Welcome to Malmö for the 20th Annual ECSS Congress

On behalf of the Department of Sport Sciences, Malmö University, the Department of Health Sciences, Lund University, and the Department of Nutrition, Exercise and Sports (NEXS), University of Copenhagen, it is our pleasure to invite you to attend the 20th Annual Congress of the European College of Sport Science. The congress will take place between June 24 and 27, 2015, in the multicultural city of Malmö, Sweden, a 15-minute train ride from Kastrup Airport in Copenhagen, Denmark.

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 sports 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 researchers within the many different areas of Sport Sciences and Sport Studies.

The ECSS congress especially emphasises exchange of knowledge through oral and 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.
