Dear ICSS Members

On behalf of the organizing committee I am pleased to invite you to the 7th International Congress on Science and Skiing. This congress will be held at St. Christoph a. Arlberg, Austria, from 10 - 15th December, 2016. It will be the follow up conference of the first five international congresses on science and skiing. The first two congresses as well as the 4th, 5th and 6th congress were also held in St. Christoph in the years 1996, 2000, 2007, 2010 and 2013. The third one was organized in Aspen (USA) in 2004.

This congress will be organized by the Department of Sport Science and Kinesiology of the University of Salzburg.

The scientific programme will offer a broad and interdisciplinary spectrum of current research work in alpine and nordic skiing and snowboarding. Internationally well known scientists will present their keynotes, many colleagues from all over the world will discuss their scientific findings in oral or poster presentations.

In addition to the scientific work, many social activities will provide opportunities to make friends, to perceive Austrian hospitality and to enjoy what winter has to offer in this wonderful skiing area. The Arlberg is famous for its superb powder skiing and is supposed to be the cradle of alpine skiing.

Dear friends and colleagues join us in St. Christoph, share some time of the special advent season with us and make the 7th International Congress on Science and Skiing a memorable event again.

We are looking forward to welcome you in St. Christoph a. Arlberg.

Erich Müller
President of the 7th International Congress on Science and Skiing
