After four years the world of swimming science will be meeting once again at the XIVth International Symposium of Biomechanics and Medicine in Swimming, this time in Leipzig/Germany. Due to current circumstances we are starting online in July 2022 with a Virtual Kick Off, followed by five virtual conferences between September 2022 and May 2023. And finally we are coming together in person in September 2023.

We are proud to welcome you at the the Leipzig University. The departments of biomechanics and swimming at the Sports Faculty will be a great place for this. Leipzig is a city that provides an attractive, distinctive and memorable destination for the 14th International BMS Symposium. Leipzig is directly connected to Leipzig/Halle airport. Additionally, the three largest German international airports (Berlin: < 2h, Frankfurt: 3h30 and Munich: 4h) are well connected to Leipzig using the German fast train system.
