Announcement of Postponement!

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

After much deliberation we have come to the difficult decision of postponing the 6th International Congress of Exercise and Sport Sciences – The Academic College at Wingate. We are as disappointed as you must be, but we all understand that this is the only responsible decision to make under the current developments of COVID-19.

We are planning to postpone to June, 2021. An exact date will be determined and announced shortly. We truly hope you will be able to take part at that time.

We look forward to seeing you in Israel next summer to celebrate the end of the corona era.

Wishing best of health to you and your families around the world. 


The Academic College at Wingate is proud to host the 6th International Congress of Exercise and Sport Sciences scheduled to take place June 10-13, 2021 at the Academic College at Wingate, Netanya, Israel.
