This “call for abstracts” is directed to researchers of all disciplines.

A special workshop will be offered about topics related to sport ethics and integrity.

Every research related to the “Future of the Olympic and Paralympic Games” and to the field related to Agenda 2020+5 is in particular welcome and will be selected firsthand.

The official language for abstracts and the symposium is English.

Accepted abstracts, posters or any full papers that will be sent via mail by June 1st, 2024 will appear in the official Symposium Proceedings. We are very keen to avoid “no shows” as the spaces for presentations are limited. After acceptance you must register at our webpage.
