International Student Conference

Greeting | Programme | Results

Dear Student-researchers! It is my great pleasure to invite you - on behalf of the University of Physical Education - to participate at the 23rd International Student Conference on Sport Sciences (ISCSS-2018) in April 27, 2018. The conference will be held on the campus of our university, which is located close to the historical area of the city, on the hilly side of the beautiful Budapest, west to the Danube River.

It is a tradition of our University to bring together young student-researchers from UPE, and other Sport Institutions in Hungary and that of neighboring countries to present their results obtained  in various fields of sportsciences. The ISCSS-2018 will provide valuable opportunities to exchange ideas, concepts and research findings, primarily by oral presentations. Also, it is our hope that the discussions will lead to future research collaborations and joint projects among the participants.

Previous participants can tell you about the great international spirit and vitality of these conferences and not to mention the fun they experienced in Budapest.

There will be plenary and invited speakers and the topics are carefully selected by the International Program Committee to represent all important aspects of research related to sportsciences. The program and other information can be soon found here.

Come and join us at the ISCSS-2018! More detailed information will follow soon. We are looking forward to seeing you in Budapest. Please save the date!

Akos Koller, president of the Students’ Scientific Association (TDK).

International Student Conference on Sport Sciences ISCSS

The University has a Students’ Scientific Association (TDK), established in the 1950s. Each year the University organizes a conference, where students give oral and poster presentations regarding their research work. The best student presenters enjoy the opportunity to attend the National Student Scientific Conference, where they are always very successful.

Every two years we organize and hold the International Student Conference on Sport Sciences, where internationally well-known scientists, both junior and senior, are invited.

The students with their mentors publish their results in national and international journals. In addition, the doctoral and TDK students are supported in their efforts to visit the research institutions and laboratories of European, North American and Asian higher educational institutions.

We believe in the power and importance of international mobility and foster institutional collaborations that facilitate such exchange opportunities for our students. Our university community takes pride in widespread scientific connections, which make it possible for international students to conduct research in our laboratories.

The University is actively involved in international conferences and academic publications, and many serve as editors or editorial board members of national and international journals.

The University of Physical Education has achieved a great deal in science, while continuously exploring ways of expanding our research portfolio and ensuring that high-quality infrastructural facilities aid our research at all levels.
