10. dvs-Sportspiel-Symposium meets
6th International TGfU Conference
today we would like to inform you about a unique event in the field of team and racket sport research:
The 10. dvs-Sportspiel-Symposium & the 6th International TGfU Conference
The conference will be held on July 25-27, 2016 at the German Sport University in Cologne, Germany. It is organized by the Institute of Cognitive and Team/Racket Sport Research in cooperation with the BISp (Federal Institute of Sport Science) and the DFG (German Research Foundation). The conference is supported by the German Football Association (DFB) and under the patronage of Minister Christina Kampmann (Ministry of Family, Children, Youth, Culture, and Sport, North-Rhine Westphalia, Germany).
- The Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) will be held in Germany for the very first time. Most of former conferences have taken place in English-speaking countries, for example, England or Canada.
- In addition, the dvs-Sportspiel-Symposium will take place simultaneously at the German Sport University Cologne for its 2nd time after 2004.
- It will be the first time that both events, i.e., the 6th TGfU Conference and the 10th dvs-Sportspiel-Symposium, take place all together. Also, it will be the first time that a national Team Sport Commission (Committee) will be brought into contact with an international Scientific Community
International and national scientists will await to engage in interdisciplinary discussions relevant to Team Sport topics from fields of Sport Pedagogics, Sport Didactics, Sport Psychology, Sport Informatics, Training and Movement Science. In this respect the conference will be an ideal exchange opportunity between scientists, practitioners, coaches and teachers and will support existing cooperation or lead to new/future international cooperations. We are already looking forward to the international exchange, which will unquestionably characterize this conference.
The Video for show on this webpage should give you a very first impression that Germany and Cologne in particular, known as the German City of Sport, are definitely worth a trip. Further information will follow soon.
