On behalf of the SPLISS network the local organizing committee invites you to submit abstracts to be considered for presentation at the SPLISS Conference on 'Elite Sport Success: society boost or not?', to be hosted by the city of Antwerp (Belgium) on 13/14 November 2013.
The conference consists of two major themes, regarding elite sports policies and strategies towards success (including the latest results of the SPLISS study in 15 countries) and the role of elite sport for society. This includes a specific focus towards cities and how they can generate an added value through elite sport. Thus it brings together academics/researchers, sport policy makers, sport consultants, major sport event organizers, city and destination marketers, representatives from National Olympic Committees, IOC, National and International Sport Governing Bodies as well as elite sport coaches.
