International Summer School on Wearable Sensors in Sport

International Summer School on Wearable Sensors in Sport

Department of Movement, Human and Health Sciences, University of Rome “Foro Italico”, Italy, 14-16 June 2021

The field of sport is changing rapidly due to emerging opportunities fostered by technological development. Driven by hardware miniaturization, as well as by advances in computing power, storage capacity, network connectivity, and software capabilities, the use of wearable sensors is becoming increasingly widespread and is set to transform both amateur and professional sports. Individual athletes, sports teams, coaches, and physicians can be technologically equipped on the field, big amounts of data are made available through the Internet of Things and new stakeholders and decision-makers are involved in this technological and social revolution. In this framework, the School aims to provide an overview of current trends in wearable technologies in sport, dive deeper into the working principles of wearable sensors, and show how to process relevant physiological and biomechanical signals. Exciting examples of how wearables are impacting users’ lives, sport sciences and industry will be presented from the different stakeholders’ perspective, with the ultimate goal of maximizing the positive force of sports in a global society.

  • Trends in wearable sensors and related applications in sport
  • Cardiac monitoring in sport
  • Respiratory monitoring in sport
  • Movement monitoring in sport
  • Energetics and power monitoring in sport
  • Training metrics and data analysis
  • Challenges and perspectives on the use of wearable sensors in sport

This School is unique in the intent of establishing synergies between the different actors working in the field of sports monitoring with wearable sensors. Examples of potential attendees are PhD students, post-doctoral researchers, master students, young professionals, employee of sports companies, and other professionals with different backgrounds (e.g. sports science, coaching, physiology, bioengineering, metrology).
