Cloud Computing and Ubiquitous Support for Coaches

I am attending the Asian Conference of Computer Science in Sports (ACCSS) in Tokyo later this week.The conference is being held at the Japan Institute of Sports Sciences.

I hope to blog live from the Conference to share the presentations and discussions.

This is a link to the Conference wiki. This is the draft program. I have submitted a paper for the Proceedings.

The abstract of my paper is:

Cloud computing is transforming the ways in which sport coaches work with athletes and enrich their own professional development. Cloud computing enables “convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction” (NIST, 2009). The pace of change in cloud computing is such that many coaches need access to and the support of educational technologists to manage their engagement with the opportunities the Internet provides. This paper presents examples of coaches’ use of cloud computing.  It explores how the openness of the cloud raises risk management issues for providers of institutional networks. The paper concludes with a discussion of the transformation of cloud resources by coaches through the use of iterative ‘good enough’ approaches to digital repositories (Lund, 2009).

IACSS News: Conferences, Workshops and Congress

Some news for those interested in Computer Science in Sport and the work of the International Association of Computer Science in Sport (IACSS).

The Asian Conference on Physical Education and Computer Science in Sports will be held in Hyderabad, India from 7th to 9th May 2010.

The Asian Conference on Computer Science in Sport will be held at the Japan Institute of Sports Science in Tokyo from 24-26 September 2010.  To date there are twenty-six submissions from seven countries . There is still time to submit an abstract to Chikara Miyaji. Abstracts should contain: title, names of authors, organization(s), and abstract text up to 300 words.

Preparations for IACSS 2011 are beginning. Professor Yu has been elected as chairman of the sub-association of Computer Science in Sport within the Association of Sport Science of China. Professor Zhang Hui is the secretary general.

An IACSS exchange symposium will be organised during the Fifteenth Annual Congress of the European College of Sport Science (ECSS) (23 – 26 June 2010) in Antalya, Turkey. In addition, IACSS and the Turkish Association of Computer Science in Sport (TACSS) will organise three congress workshops before the start of the formal ECSS 2010 program.
