Conference Topics

AIM

Broadening of scientific insights into the latest research, theoretical and applicative findings and experiences from the vast field of kinesiology, the science of human movement, sport and exercise. A presentation of the latest information is expected from the basic principles to practical applications, especially reports on new scientific breakthroughs such as the human genome research, application of new technologies, revised educational concepts and, above all, the urgent need to find more effective ways of health preservation and well-being.  The aim of the Conference is also to enhance further cooperation between scholars and institutions in various competitive projects in different fields of kinesiology.
