On behalf of the Organizing and Programme Committee, we would like to express our appreciation to all participants at the 8th INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC CONFERENCE ON KINESIOLOGY - 20th Anniversary - held in Opatija, Croatia, 10 - 14 May 2017.

Without your participation conference would not have been the success that it was. We strongly believe that you found your involvement in the Conference both valuable and rewarding.

Convinced that the Conference gave the expected impetus to further cooperation between scholars and institutions, we are looking forward in advance to meeting you again at the 9th International Conference on Kinesiology in 2020.
