Welcome to First Annual Symposium on sport sciences


This course will be organized for the first time as a continuation of previous symposiums on physical activity and human performance. Sport Sciences has two research groups focusing on Performance and Technology and Sports and Social Issues that will merge their efforts to propose an exciting program focusing on basic and applied aspects explaining transitions from physical inactivity to physical activity as well as their related effects.

This PhD course will provide the audience relevant and recent research in sport sciences based on qualitative and quantitative research addressing various forms of physical activity/inactivity performed at work and during leisure among different populations (e.g. young, migrants, elderly, patients, elite or recreational sportsmen). Internationally recognized speakers and a series of speakers from Aalborg University will be invited. The addressed topics will include for instance: sociology, talent development, motor control, biomechanics, migration, ergonomics, training, and neuromechanics.

A special emphasis will be given on the speaker-student interaction. The detailed agenda of the course will be provided on the course web site.

Relevant papers and book chapters will be announced shortly before the course.

The students participating in this course should have basic knowledge on anatomy, physiology and methods to assess human performance by means of qualitative and quantitative methods.

Will be announced at the course.

Important information concerning PhD courses: We have over some time experienced problems with no-show for both project and general courses. It has now reached a point where we are forced to take action. Therefore, the Doctoral School has decided to introduce a no-show fee of DKK 5,000 for each course where the student does not show up. Cancellations are accepted no later than 2 weeks before start of the course. Registered illness is of course an acceptable reason for not showing up on those days. Furthermore, all courses open for registration approximately three months before start. This can hopefully also provide new students a chance to register for courses during the year. We look forward to your registrations.
