Call for Participation | Registration of ISHPES 2020 Online Congress is now open | August 22–23, 2020

The spread of COVID-19 has affected everyone’s overall daily and social life. Our duty in securing people’s health and safety became not only the issue for the congress organizer but also all over the world where international participants live. The original idea of ISHPES 2020 was to provide the opportunity to discuss ‘sport history and interdisciplinary relations’ in the year of the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympic Games and Paralympic Games. Although the event of the Games was postponed, we are still expecting to discuss the proposed theme this year in our online congress.

We look forward to the participation of audiences from every country and wish this congress to be the first successful attempt to link sport history scholars through worldwide digital sessions. Let’s enjoy this new experience together with the local Sapporo organizing committee, on August 22nd and 23rd, 2020.
