The Scientific and Programme Committee of the 31st European Sport Management Conference of the European Association for Sport Management (EASM) invites scholars and practitioners to submit Abstract contributions for consideration.
Deadline for Submissions: Monday 17th April (23.59 CET)
Full details of EASM 2023 workshops can be found here.
Importantly, please note the following conference policy:
In Parallel Sessions, every presenter gives a maximum 12-minute oral presentation with additional 5 minutes for discussion. Our Parallel Session topics are:
The Poster Session is divided in two parts: first, contributors provide short oral presentations (3-minutes) to the whole audience; then, presenters position themselves next to their respective poster for individual Q&A and discussion. Submissions relating to any sport management topic are welcomed.
Abstract Submission Guidelines
Abstract submissions should be made through the ConfTool system by the stated deadline. Abstracts submitted after the deadline will not be considered.
Abstracts not complying with Submission Guidelines will bounce back before entering the review process and authors will be asked to resubmit.
For an Abstract to enter the review process and be considered for presentation during the conference the following guidelines must be adhered to:
Abstracts can be submitted in two categories:
Category 1 – Scientific Abstracts should be structured using the following sections *:
* The structure should only be altered if clearly justified by the nature of the submission and contribution (e.g. conceptual work).
** In cases where the results/findings for a Scientific Abstract are not yet available at the time of Abstract submission, authors must mention this by guaranteeing that they will have the results by the time of the conference. They should provide a preview of the nature of the results/findings as well as envisioned contribution/implications.
Category 2 – For Professional Practice Abstracts the following sections are recommended ***:
***In addition, such a structure might better work for scholarly contributions towards the Parallel Sessions ‘Sport Management Education’ and ‘Sport Law and Ethics’ if they are not concerned with scientific/empirical research. For example, sport management education contributions might be concerned with innovative approaches to curriculum development, learning environments and (higher) education management/policy (yet, please keep in mind that your Abstract should not be a sales pitch for a certain programme, but rather a discussion of ‘best practices’ and sharing learnings that other members of the EASM community may find inspiring and useful).
