The 22nd annual congress of the European College of Sport Science (ECSS) will take place in MetropolisRuhr area in the heart of Germany. The Invited Programme (invited and plenary symposia) is constructed in the ECSS winter meeting in January 2016. The programme is debated in a joint effort between the Local Scientific Committee of the ECSS MetropolisRuhr 2017 and the ECSS Scientific Board.

The congress theme “Sport Science in a Metropolitan Area” emphasizes the multicultural population in the MetropolisRuhr area and the challenges it brings to the society as well as to the sport culture. The theme is highlighted throughout the scientific programme of the congress in all session formats from plenaries to poster presentations.
Once again ECSS congress has a strong interdisciplinary perspective on sport science including social sciences and humanities, physiology and sport medicine as well as biomechanics and neuromuscular.

Your contribution to building up the scientific programme is much appreciated and we are calling for proposals for the invited and plenary sessions at the ECSS MetropolisRuhr 2017. The submission is possible through your ECSS account, exclusively.

Deadline for submissions is 15th of November 2015.
