There will also be six working groups, two poster presentations, award ceremonies, two / DOSB Dialogue Forum (19 September) and a reunion of former students twelve (18.09., 17.30: "30 years ago: East and West German Sports science "meeting together – Alumni Meeting dvs University Day Berlin 2019").

For the first time, Dvs offers a program of continuous education for sports scientists at universities: "Learning Research". This workshop will organize a course on "research learning" at the transition from research and teaching. The aim is to illuminate research-based learning as an approach to didactic teaching and to gather prior experience and explore the technical possibilities and learning-based learning issues within the discussion and work tasks. Two relevant lectures were used here: "For Learning Learning in Sports Pedagogy – Modeling Experiments" (Michael Fritschen, BU Wuppertal) and "Study of Learning in Sport Sociology – Competence, Field Access, Examples" (Silvester Stahl, FH Potsdam).

A diverse program of support for the conference dinner at the Beach Center completes the scientific program.

dvs Youth Talent Award 2019: Finals finalists have been announced
Within the 24th day of the University of Berlin, the Young Talent Award will be awarded the tenth time for the best contribution of young scientists. The Youth Talent Award is sponsored by the Friedrich Schleich Memorial Foundation and receives a total of 1,500 EUR. The memorial foundation Friedrich Schleich was founded in 2001 as a memorial of the entrepreneur and inventor of Friedrich Schleich, headquartered in Schwäbisch Gmünd.

After a detailed review of the submissions, the following three submissions were selected for the final round:
• Daniel Leyhr (University of Tübingen), "Prognostic relevance of predictors of motor talents in youth football: longitudinal analysis using latent structural equations and multi-level models"
• Bernd Stetter (KIT), "Comparative Analysis of Modular Management Strategies for Different Locomotion Locations" and
• Oliver Seidel (University of Leipzig), "Intensive Dependent Changes in Cerebral Oxygenation during Ergometry Measured with fNIRS: Comparison between Experts and Non-Professionals".
These three selected candidates present their work at the University Day at a special event ("Final Round", September 19, 12 pm). After the presentation of the item follows the discussion. The ranking of the finalists will be determined on the basis of the grades submitted and their oral performances. The award ceremony will take place on the evening of 19 September.

Postdoctoral Lectures at the University Day 2019
The "Post-Doc Lecture" dvs offers a forum for postdoctoral researchers (including younger professors, scientific assistants), enabling them to fully and comprehensively report on their research. 40 minutes for lectures (about 30 minutes of lecture and 10 minutes of talk). Parallel with this, there will be no rival events at a certain time.
Of the eight applications, the jury of the three selected winners. On Thursday (19 September, 14:00) in Berlin Dr. Ing. Lisa Katharina Maurer from the Justus-Liebig-Universität Gießen University will discuss the topic "Prediction of Movement Defects: Neural Correlation, Relevance and Development in Motoring Learning". Similarly, Dr. Steffen Greve from Leuphana University will give a lecture on "And then I was Suddenly the only Normalo in the cabin – a Benefit-focused assessment of Inclusive Sports at the Club".
