Announcements

ICOS and Toyo University have made the difficult decision to postpone the July 2020 15th International Symposium for Olympic Research.

At this time, ICOS and Toyo University are exploring possible alternative dates to hold the 15th International Symposium for Olympic Research. When an alternate date can be set, ICOS will inform candidates who have registered and/or submitted abstracts for the 15th International Symposium for Olympic Research. More information about withdrawals and refunds will be available in the coming weeks.
