Welcome to the Austria Center Vienna!Surrounded by contemporary architecture, just 7 minutes from the city centre and a few minutes’ walk from the Danube and the Donaupark. Austria’s largest conference centre has a total capacity for 20,000 delegates and offers 24 lecture rooms for between 100 and 4,320 participants, 180 meeting rooms and 22,000 sqm of exhibition space.

Each cog is aligned to the next: location, spaces, equipment, partners and team We ensure that guests experience service at the highest level and offer the perfect setting for successful events.
On behalf of the Centre for Sport Science and University Sports, University of Vienna it is my great pleasure to invite you to attend the 21st Annual Congress of the European College of Sport Science in Vienna. The congress will be held between 6th and 9th of July, 2016 at the Austria Center Vienna (ACV) which is located close to the City Center, the River Danube but also the United Nations Building.
"Crossing Borders through Sport Science" as conference theme should reflect the long-lasting tradition of Austria in bringing together people from all over the world but also the emphasis of the European College to fully cover all disciplines and topics within Sport Science. Especially plenary but also invited symposia will be chosen carefully to highlight different view points on specific topics in order to summarize existing knowledge but also to find new ideas and ways of research in our area.
Similar to other ECSS conferences we aim to attract many early stage researchers but also well known experts to ensure a valuable information exchange at all formats of the conference from mini orals to plenary sessions. Possibly, this will lead to the discovery of high potentials within the Young Investigator Award, but certainly to the development of future projects, collaborations, and friendships.
Of course visiting a conference not only is to meet other scientists but also to grab the spirit of the hosting city and its surroundings. Vienna has transformed from a Roman settlement to the capital of the Austrian-Hungarian Empire, finally becoming the capital of the modern Austrian state with about 2 million inhabitants. Since several years Vienna is ranked number one concerning the quality of living which reflects not only political and economical factors but also health, education and public service including transportation. When coming to Vienna you will experience the historical heritage mixed with modernity not only when visiting museums, concerts and the different theatres but also when relaxing at one of the numerous restaurants, bars and of course at the classical "Heurigen" in the vineyards of Vienna.
We look forward to seeing you all in Vienna in 2016.
