Annual congresses have been organized since the inauguration of the ECSS in 1995. Today the ECSS congresses rank among the leading sport scientific congresses worldwide. The ECSS congress is the largest multidisciplinary congress in sport science, covering all major sectors of sport studies and sport science: Biomechanics & Neuromuscular, Physiology & Sport Medicine, and Social Science & Humanities. Admittedly, the latter sector has so far been seriously underrepresented, and the stated endeavor of the local organizers of the ECSS Congress 2015 in Malmö is to increase the number of sessions and presentations – of all kinds – within Social Science & Humanities.
The congress comprises a range of keynote speakers, invited lecturers, multi- and mono-disciplinary symposia as well as tutorial lecturers and Socratic debates. The ECSS congress is attended by international sport scientists with an academic career. The ECSS congresses now welcome up to 3000 participants from all over the world.
