12th asp-Workshop for the up-and-coming researchers

A regular event for these last twelve years is the Research Workshop preceding the asp conference from the 29th April till the 1st May. Junior scientists from the field of sport psychology or related areas are cordially invited to participate. Workshop participants will have the possibility of presenting the current state of their research and additionally acquire new ideas through the discussions. Four experts will be joining the Workshop and will also be acting as tutors. The focus of the choice of lectures is various aspects in research methods.

The workshop will be complemented by an additional programme that will allow the opportunity for both professional and private discussions (e.g. during the evening grill party) as well as sport activities supplementing the topics discussed during the scientific events. Participants, as well as, the Experts can try out Floorball (we have succeeded in having a former national player as a coach) as well as a more passive activity like a visit to our sauna. As a closing event to the Workshop, a Mountain Bike tour is planned in the Bernese area on the morning of the 1st May (Mountain Bikes will be provided). This sport activity requires appropriate clothes wear (as well as sufficient towels for the sauna).
