Aula Magna of the Italian Olympic Committee, Rome, the 20th of April, 1965. That was the place and moment of the inception of the International Society of Sport Psychology – ISSP. This happened during the 1st International ISSP World Congress of Sport Psychology marking the Modern Era of our scientific field and was led by the Italian Ferruccio Antonelli.

From that moment professional and scientific networks were initiated, sport psychology was spread internationally, the knowledge in this field was developed enormously, and Continental societies appeared.

Exactly fifty years after, this historical occasion will be celebrated in the very same place of the Italian Olympic Committee Centre, in Rome. For two days (April, 2015, 19-20), the ISSP 50th Anniversary Seminar will honor the past and look to the future. Hence, the motto of the event is “A Bridge from the Past to the Future” (

The program of the ISSP 50th Anniversary Seminar will include invited keynote lectures, symposia and workshops, as well as submitted poster sessions. The 50th Anniversary Gala Banquet will be the perfect moment for the social interaction among all the participants.

We invite colleagues from the global sport and exercise psychology community to join this event and submit abstracts for poster sessions. We look forward to share scientific and professional ideas, as well as celebrate the 50 years of ISSP and modern sport psychology.
