Dagstuhl: Day 2 Session 3

Session 3 of Day 2 at the Computer Science in Sport Conference (Special Emphasis:Football) at Schloss Dagstuhl was dedicated to Coaching themes. The session was chaired by and introduced by Stuart Morgan (Australian Institute of Sport). His introduction focussed on the ways coaches and scientists communicate.  I liked Stuart's representation of the communication process. Stuart explored signal to noise issues and presented these data from the 2010 Champions' Trophy Tournament. These were all Germany's ball movements in the attacking third of the pitch. I presented  after Stuart in this session. I used Prezi to share my data from the first two rounds...

Dagstuhl: Day 2 Session 2

  Peter Lamb (TU Munich) was the first presenter in the second morning session of Day 2 at the Computer Science in Sport Conference (Special Emphasis:Football) at Schloss Dagstuhl. Peter discussed Self-Organising Maps (SOMs) and presented Basketball data to exemplify an SOM approach to movement observation and analysis. He developed his discussion with an analysis of golf shots and concluded with a brief exploration of the use of SOMs in football. Self-organizing maps are a type of artificial neural network useful for visualizing complex human movement coordination. The visualization of the network output can be enhanced by using colour or a third...

Dagstuhl: Day 1 Session 3

The Computer Science in Sport Conference (Special Emphasis:Football) at Schloss Dagstuhl had a mixed group of presentations in the third session of Day 1. Malte Siegle was the first presenter in the session and discussed his work with Martin Lames on Game Interruptions in football - a neglected element for modelling the demands if the game. Malte introduced his paper with a consideration of  the use of position detection systems to measure performance in football. He noted that these systems provide no data about game interruptions. In his presentation he shared an analysis of 1729 interruptions in 16 matches and discussed...
