Conferences in Physical Education and Sport Science

The Best Conferences in Physical Education and Sport Science

Which are the top conferences in Physical Education and Sport Science?

I have taken part in different conferences in sport and exercise sciences, physical education and the sports medicine. Such events provide great opportunities to present your research, learn new things, and meet specialists in your field. Attending any conference is always a good idea, but in order to decide and select the best for you, I suggest that you should conduct a comprehensive search on the internet. From my point of view, I like the ones with the most opportunities for the participants, the ones which provide good quality of research, recognition of attendance, as well as enough opportunities to connect with other delegates.

In my opinion, the best choices would be the ECSS Congress, ACSM annual meeting, and the BASES Conference. I attended the ECSS Congress in Prague in 2019, which is the annual congress of the European College of Sport Science (ECSS), and I presented our research at their parallel sessions. This was the largest event in sport science that I have ever taken part with around 2700 participants from all over the world, and I am of the opinion, that the ECSS Congress is probably one of the best experience you might have. I also attended the BASES Conference, which is the annual conference of the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences, and it is held in the UK. I participated with a poster in 2017 and presented at their mini parallel sessions in 2018. My impression is that the quality was very good, but there were not as many participants and opportunities in comparison with the ECSS Congress. The participants at the BASES conferences are between 300 and 400, and therefore, the resources of the organisers are not as much as the European College.

Here is a list of the top upcoming conferences in physical education and sport science which I have found so far, sorted by years.
