The department of physical performance is organizing a special symposium on physiological and biomechanical aspects of sports performance. The department has a long tradition in both scientific areas and we would like to highlight some of our work in terrestrial locomotion, swimming and team sports research and also highlight nutritional aspect the optimize endurance and strength performances. We are fortunate to be able to count on contributions of internationally renowned experts in these field.
