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 2 Session 1

The Computer Science in Sport Conference (Special Emphasis:Football) at Schloss Dagstuhl on Day 2 had two morning sessions on Dynamical Systems. Jurgen Perl chaired these sessions and introduced the first presenter in the session, Dietmar Saupe (Universitat Konstanz). Dietmar noted the Wikipedia link to Dynamical Systems. He provided a mathematical introduction to dynamical systems. The abstract for Dietmar's presentation is: Based on a physical model for the forces that must be applied by pedaling while cycling and a simple physiological model for the exertion of the athlete as a function of his/her accumulated power output, an optimal riding strategy for time trials...
