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...

Zine Time at ACCSS 2010

I had an opportunity after the Asian Conference of Computer Science in Sports (ACCSS) held at the Japan Institute of Sports Sciences to explore the functionality offered by OpenZine. I had posted previously about Zines and had found out about OpenZine since then. "OpenZine is a publishing platform with web browser based tools that provides an easy way for anyone to make their own magazine, for free." I thought it might be an interesting way to share some of the social aspects of the Conference. I used some of the photographs taken by Rafet Irmak and myself to illustrate the Zine....
