    Call for Papers

    The Sci­en­tific Com­mit­tee of the 25th EASM Con­fer­ence 2017 invites schol­ars and prac­ti­tion­ers to sub­mit abstracts to be con­sid­ered for pre­sen­ta­tion. Addi­tion­ally, the Sci­en­tific Com­mit­tee wel­comes short papers to be con­sid­ered for the EASM Best Con­fer­ence Paper Award 2017 and for the EASM New Researchers Award 2017 for young sci­en­tific scholars.

    The con­fer­ence theme is Chal­lenges and Devel­op­ments of Sport Organ­i­sa­tions.
