3rd International Congress on Science and Nordic Skiing 2. – 5.6.2015 in Vuokatti

    Dear friends of Cross-Country Skiing, Nordic Combined, Ski Jumping and Biathlon,

    We are very pleased to organize the 3rd International Congress on Science and Nordic Skiing (www.ICSNS2015.fi) in June 2015 (5th-8th) in Vuokatti, Finland. The congress will gather together scientists, coaches, representatives from the ski industry, ski associations and Olympic and Paralympic Committees, students, and last but not least, athletes to discuss the latest developments in Nordic Skiing. This congress will be a good time to enjoy and share ideas between friends and colleagues and it will be held under the “Motto”: “From science to practice”.

    The Congress will be organized by the Sports Technology Unit (Vuokatti) of the Department of Biology of Physical Activity, University of Jyväskylä, Finland and Department of Sport Science and Kinesiology, University of Salzburg, Austria in co-operation with Vuokatti Sports Institute, The Centre for Measurement and Information Systems (CEMIS) and the Municipality of Sotkamo. Chairs of the congress are Prof. Vesa Linnamo (Univ. Jyväskylä, Finland) and Prof. Stefan Josef Lindinger (Univ. Salzburg, Austria).

    The majority of the program naturally includes individual oral and poster presentations by colleagues from all over the world. We encourage our younger colleagues to take part in a competition for the Young Investigator Award.

    We are confident that we will be able to offer an unforgettable stay in Vuokatti both academically and socially. Therefore, it is our great pleasure to welcome you all to enjoy the Finnish summer and inspiring atmosphere of Vuokatti.

    We kindly ask you to distribute this information to all your clubs in all the districts of the country, to all Nordic coaches, athletes and representatives in your country and to motivate them to join us in Vuokatti in June 5-8, 2015!
