10th ICSS - International Congress on Science and Skiing



Congress History



The first ICSS congress was held in the now distant year of 1996 in St. Christoph am Arlberg, Austria, attracting a very large group of participants. Since then, numerous successful editions have followed, organized again in Austria and with one edition in Aspen, USA (2004).
In 2006, the first special edition was organized in Vuokatti, Finland, specifically devoted to Nordic skiing, ICSNS (International Congress on Skiing and Skiing), led by Professor Paavo Komi. Since their inception, and until the 7th edition, the ICSS congress has focused on overall skiing disciplines in Arlberg, Austria, and ICSNS, with a total of three editions in Vuokatti (2006, 2012, 2015).
The congress was founded by Professor Müller, who chaired many editions organized by the University of Salzburg. The editions in Vuokatti were chaired by Professor Paavo Komi and Professor Vesa Linnamo. More recently, the congress has been chaired or co-chaired by Stefan Lindinger and Thomas Stöggl.
Since 2019, it was decided that the congress would continue solely as ICSS, with the 8th edition held in Vuokatti and the 9th in Saalbach-Hinterglemm.
Each edition has been characterized by a high-level scientific program, around 200 submissions for poster and oral presentations, and well-organized social sports activities featuring good food from the local tradition.
