The 7th Conference of BSSS
State on 17 April 2014
The 7th Conference of Baltic Society of Sport Sciences
May 7 - 9, 2014, Tartu, Estonia
The Baltic Society of Sport Sciences (BSSS) welcomes you for its 7th conference in Tartu, Estonia. This old university town hosts the BSSS conference for the third time. The organization of the annual conference is the shared responsibility of the Faculty of Exercise and Sport Sciences and the Doctoral School of Behavioural, Social and Health Sciences, University of Tartu. The University of Tartu was founded in 1632 and is the leading academic institution in Estonia. The predecessor of the Faculty of Exercise and Sport Sciences was founded 86 years ago, in 1928.
The annual event brings together the teaching staff, research fellows and doctoral students from the institutions of university-level education in the Baltic states and several other countries. Traditionally, the conference offers the opportunity for colleagues to learn about the research results yielded by others and to launch or renew cooperation projects. The format of the conference hopefully encourages academic discussions and interaction between the participants and renowned scientists who have been invited to deliver keynote speeches.
The conference traditionally includes competition for the award of young scientists, who get the chance to exchange ideas and establish contacts for developing their research projects. We have also planned to conduct during the conference the round-table meeting on doctoral studies in the Baltic and other countries for further cooperation in this field.
The conference is held in the Dorpat Conference Centre that has excellent facilities for a successful scientific meeting. The conference venue is located in the city centre, allowing easy access to several hotels, shops and restaurants.
We are looking forward to seeing you in Tartu, Estonia.
Vice-president of BSSS, Chair of the Conference
