    Call for Papers

    The Sci­en­tific Com­mit­tee of the 25th EASM Con­fer­ence 2017 invites schol­ars and prac­ti­tion­ers to sub­mit abstracts to be con­sid­ered for pre­sen­ta­tion.

    The con­fer­ence theme is Chal­lenges and Devel­op­ments of Sport Organ­i­sa­tions.

    To be con­sid­ered for the award, appli­cants will sub­mit a sci­en­tific abstract and a five-​page short paper exclud­ing ref­er­ences, fol­low­ing the sub­mis­sion guide­lines below. Details about the award can be found here.
