The 2015 FEPSAC Congress in Bern is history!

This year's 14th European Congress of Sport Psychology is over, and we hope you had a safe return back home.

Beautiful weather, the charming old city of Bern and the unique experience of swimming in the river Aare constituted the framework for the scientific programme. 714 attendants made this Congress the biggest in the history of FEPSAC. Six keynote lectures, 81 symposia, 38 workshops and 8 special sessions, as well as over 400 poster presentations covered basically all topics within sport psychology and different domains of sport, physical activity and exercise.

We gratefully acknowledge the contributions of all presenters who animated the Congress theme "Theories and applications for performance, health and humanity" with their high standard scientific contributions and inspiring workshops. A special thanks to all our partners who made the Congress possible.

Thank you all for attending and helping, with your open-mindedness, interest and discussions, to make this Congress a "Congress to remember" – both scientifically and socially! We are glad to read your positive feedback #fepsac2015!

Looking forward to the FEPSAC Conference 2017 in Nottingham, UK and the 15th FEPSAC European Congress of Sport Psychology 2019 in Münster, Germany!
