Dear Colleagues,

after we had to postpone the conference due to the corona pandemic we are pleased to announce that the 6th International Congress on Complex Systems in Sports (ICCSS) will take place as a virtual congress from September 15th - 17th, 2021.

The ICCSS is a unique opportunity for researchers, practitioners, teachers, trainers, coaches, performance analysts and educational developers to address current challenges and advances in the field of sport science. This year's motto of the congress "Moving Minds - Crossing Boundaries in Sport Science" is based on the scientific culture of the hosting University of Mainz, which invites to an active change and a common crossing of borders in science. This motto addresses how emerging and future approaches in theory and practice can be used in a meaningful way to enhance the understanding of sporting people, to contribute to efficient and effective training, and to assess the added value new analytical approaches.

We are very pleased to announce that Human Movement Science and Frontiers in Network Physiology will collaborate with us to communicate the content and results of the congress:

Human Movement Science will publish a special issue titled "Moving Minds - Crossing Boundaries in Sport Science".
The 6 keynote lectures will be published here, as well as further 7 contributions that will be selected by the scientific committee.

Frontiers has launched a research topic on "Exploring inside and outside variability to unravel the entanglement of movement and learning interactions in sports", the abstract submission for this research topic is already open.
