Secondary Data Analysis and Curation: A Presentation at #IACSS2011

Last week I had an opportunity to make an oral presentation at the Eighth International Symposium of Computer Science in Sport in Shanghai.

I was keen to explore the potential of secondary data analysis that draws upon the increasingly rich data provided by websites supporting sporting events.

I used data drawn from the 2011 Asia Football Cup to discuss issues around the creation and curation of content. I noted some of the responsibilities associated with produsing web based resources.

This is a brief SlideCast of my presentation.

#IACSS2011: Post Facto

I was not able to blog live from the IACSS Eighth International Symposium of Computer Science in Sport.

Here is my first report of events at the Symposium held at the Shanghai University of Sport.

The program extended over three days. Each daily report is shared as a Word Document.

Day One IACSS11 Day 1

Day Two IACSS11 Day 2

Day Three IACSS11 Day 3

Over the three days of the Symposium there were eight keynote addresses, sixty-one oral presentations and twenty poster presentations.

The 8th International Symposium on Computer Science in Sport (IACSS 2011) is taking place this week at the Shanghai University of Sport.

The conference theme is Better Computer, Better Sport.

The conference website provides information about the venue and the conference program IACSS11_Schedule.

There are eight keynote addresses:

  • Arnold Baca: Education in Computer Science in Sport – A Report on 23 Years of Personal Experience.
  • Yong Jiang: Predicting results/scores for the London Olympic Game based on computer model.
  • Larry Katz: Successes and Challenges with Performance Analysis: An International Perspective
  • Jurgen Perl: Concepts and Methods of Modelling A Case Study.
  • Roger Bartlett: The Use of Artificial Neural Networks in Studying Movement Coordination.
  • Martin Lames: Positional Data in Game Sports – Validation and Practical Impact.
  • Dario Liebermann: Technological Diffusion Between Sport Science and Motor Rehabilitation Science
