Conference Paper Flowchart

Conference Paper Topics

The conference themes and crosscutting technologies chosen by the Engineering of Sport 14 conference Organizing Committee are shown below:

Crosscutting Technologies Overview

Digitally enhanced techniques: What new digital technologies are going to revolutionize the next generation of sports? As the sports world moves towards a more digital experience for both athlete and fan alike, we’re looking for technologies that address one or more of the following three themes: excitement, health, and integrity of sport. 

Equipment and apparel: What innovations in equipment and apparel are going to transform the future of sports? What role will sensors and technology play in the processing, properties, and performance of sports apparel and equipment?

E-sports and hybrid sports: We are entering a time where hybrid and e-sports are gaining popularity and acceptance as legitimate forms of competition. How will technology aid this shift and what will be needed to maintain the integrity of sport while maximizing excitement and health?

Competition format: What people expect out of the fan experience is shifting, including how the competitions themselves are designed. What new technology enabled competition models could be introduced to further engage the fan, especially those in the younger generations? For example, is nation versus nation what fans want to see, or would they rather see superstar versus superstar? What will be the factors that influence the future of competition formats?

Data science and security: As more and more data are collected, it’s imperative that it remains secure. What new information can be ascertained through data that’s already being collected and how can it be securely transferred to the appropriate group(s)? 

Coaching and education: Behind great athletes are great coaches who need advanced tools to train the next generation. What will those tools look like? And more than that, how can fans learn about sports they are not familiar with, and how can we ensure that the athletes, who give everything to their sport, have a chance at an education once their sports career is over?
