Conference

The main scientific event organized by the Montenegrin Sports Academy (MSA) is the annual conference held in the first week of April.

Annual conferences have been organized since the inauguration of the MSA in 2003. Today the MSA conference ranks among the leading sports scientific congresses in the Western Balkans. The conference comprises a range of invited lecturers, oral and poster presentations from multi- and mono-disciplinary areas, as well as various types of workshops. The MSA conference is attended by national, regional and international sports scientists with academic careers. The MSA conference now welcomes up to 200 participants from all over the world.

Upcoming conference

It is our great pleasure to announce the upcoming 15th International Scientific Conference and the 14th annual Congress of the Montenegrin Sports Academy to be held in Budva, Montenegro, from 12 to 15 April, 2018. It is planned to be once again organized by the Montenegrin Sports Academy, in cooperation with the Faculty of Sport and Physical Education, University of Montenegro and other international partner institutions (specified in the partner section).

The conference is focused on very current topics from all areas of sports science and sports medicine including physiology and sports medicine, social sciences and humanities, biomechanics and neuromuscular (see Abstract Submission page for more information).

We do believe that the topics offered to our conference participants will serve as a useful forum for the presentation of the latest research, as well as both for the theoretical and applied insight into the field of sports science and sports medicine disciplines.

Young Researchers Award

One of the key objectives of the Montenegrin Sports Academy (MSA) is the promotion of junior scientists and the fostering of state-of-the-art research. For this purpose the MSA established the Young Researchers Award (YRA).

Young researchers have the opportunity to enter this prestigious competition for scientific excellence, where outstanding scientific work can be presented at the MSA annual conference. A jury consisting of the MSA Scientific Committee members grants the awards based upon an oral and poster presentation for the top presentations, respectively. The YRA might be a starting point for the scientific careers of its potential winners.

YRA applications that meet all the necessary requirements are welcome online, using the abstract submission process of the upcoming MSA annual conference.

YRA reviewing criteria

A jury consisting of the MSA Scientific Committee members grants the awards based upon an oral and poster presentation for the top presentations respectively following the below listed YRA reviewing criteria:

  • The work is original, not published, or accepted for publication, at the time of the abstract submission deadline
  • The research has relevance for sport sciences and all its subdisciplines
  • The presentation (oral or poster) has been carefully prepared, is using appropriate and high quality visual means and is well organized/structured
  • High quality of technical presentation of oral or poster (delivery speed, clearly audible, varied tone, confident delivery, pointer use, correct use of scientific terminology)
  • The background and relevance is clearly described
  • The work is innovative
  • The methodology is sound and the data are solid
  • There are quantitative data in the presentation, the study has enough power and appropriate statistical tests have been performed to underpin claims on significance
  • There is a clear conclusion or take home message at the end

The work either has a high impact on the area of research or has a potential high impact in the future (e.g. development of new methodologies that will generate new knowledge)

YRA requirements and prize money

All requirements must be met within the requested deadlines to successfully apply for the YRA:

  • Conference registration fee paid before the registration deadline for presenting authors
