7th ECOSEP Congress - Athens 19-20 November 2021



Abstract  Submission

The 7th ECOSEP Congress is an opportunity for discussion and for the exchange of ideas and experiences.

For this reason anyone can participate at the Conference with an Oral or Poster Presentation that will be hοld in the parallel sessions of the Official Scientific Programme.

These sessions have been designed to unearth state of the art methods of treatment, new research or Case Reports of reference,  related to Sports Medicine. As such, these Presentations form an integral part of the final Scientific value.


Important Dates
Submission opens    May 1st 2020
Submission deadline May 31st 2021
Notification of Acceptance  June 30th 2021


Good reasons to submit your abstract:

•   be part of one of the largest congresses in Sports Science

•   earn international recognition for the work you do

•   boost your career while participating in the ECOSEP Congress

•   receive the feedback that helps you progress

•   meet the experts

•   make the network you need

Authors are free to choose between oral presentation, e-poster presentation as format while submitting in one of the following four disciplinary fields and perspectives represented in the scientific program:


Physiology & Sports Medicine

The Physiology and Sports Medicine theme encompasses all life science disciplines (Physiology, Biochemistry, Molecular and Cellular Biology, Nutrition, Training and Testing, Exercise and Health, Clinical and Rehabilitation Sciences) from a basic empirical science viewpoint through to applied practice and application; in populations ranging from young to old, from injured to recovery and in participants to elite performers. Presentations that explore and describe the acute and/or training adaptations to exercise and activity are welcomed, as are studies that address the fundamental mechanisms responsible for the beneficial and harmful effect of exercise and sport.  Investigations that interrogate these responses using in-vitro and in-vivo approaches in Human and animal models are equally acceptable if direct links to exercise and sport are apparent. 

Biomechanics & Neuromuscular

The Biomechanics and Neuromuscular theme pillar covers the study of human movement in general, of sports movements more in particular from a mechanical view point (i.e. kinematics, kinetics), but also includes research studying the neuromuscular aspects (i.e. EMG, coordination, motor control) influencing performance. Both fundamental (mechanistic) and applied studies are welcomed, as well as observational reports. Attention is drawn as well to the loading characteristics of different sports and exercises on the musculoskeletal system.

Sports performance

Sports performance, at both the elite and participatory levels, requires the coordinated efforts of athletes, coaches, scientists and other professionals. One of the primary areas of focus for Sport and Exercise Science research is examining and determining the scientific bases of sports performance. Studies regarding performance analysis of elite athletes and teams, technology and computer science in sports, observational analysis of risk injury, data analytics, biomechanics and motion analysis, tactical evaluation and coaching process are welcomed.


Sports Dentistry

The sports dentistry include the fields of orofacial trauma and its prevention, management and treatments, the interaction between stomatognathic system and the rest of the body (posture, muscles activities, balance, injury risk), the epidemiological analysis of oral health in sports as well as the holistic approach of the oral health including TMD’s and dental occlusion. The introduction of new technologies in dental examination and techniques in treatment and prevention of the stomatognathic system pathologies and function will be an additional area of attention. A special focus will be on the Team Dentist field of action and responsibilities in different sports.


According to the covered area, the abstracts will be distributed into the scientific program under the following topics:

Abstract submission is free of charge. After undergoing the reviewing process, all authors will be informed about the acceptance of their submission on 30/06/2021.

Registration fee must be paid by 31/07/21 at the latest to secure the presentation during the Congress.

To do so the Scientific Committee of the ECOSEP Congress needs to receive an Abstract of your Case Report.


The acceptance of the Abstract, the printing on the Final Programme and on the Abstract Book, will be subordinated to the payment of the registration fee
