International Summer School on Wearable Sensors in Sport 2022

Deadline extended to June 13th

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 sports technologies, dive deeper into the specific needs of different sport disciplines, and show how physiological and biomechanical signals can be processed to obtain key performance and health indicators. Potentials and challenges on the use of wearable sensors in sport will be discussed and relevant recommendations provided by leading experts in the field.

  • The impact of wearables on athletes’ performance
  • The impact of wearables on athletes’ health
  • Endurance sports
  • Team sports
  • Water sports
  • Strength and Conditioning
  • Methodological hints for a successful career in the field of 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).
