Dagstuhl: Day 3 Sessions 1 and 2

Today is the final day of the Computer Science in Sport Conference (Special Emphasis:Football) at Schloss Dagstuhl. The morning session discussed Media and Data Acquisition issues. The session was chaired by Daniel Link (TU Munchen). Daniel presented first in this session. He reported on the Game Data Library Project for the Bundesliga. The aims of the Project are: Technical: better data validation and better IT infrastructure Commercial Daniel discussed the game observation process for the Game Data Library. This involves the acquisition of basic data that includes match information data, tracking data (at 25hz), event data, static video data that are used to create...

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 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...

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...

Dagstuhl: Day 1 Session 1

The Computer Science in Sport Conference (Special Emphasis:Football) started at Schloss Dagstuhl this morning. Martin Lames is coordinating the Conference. There is a list of participants here. The first session was an introduction to Dagstuhl and to the Conference program. Themes of the Conference include: Robocup (chaired by Sven Behnke) Dynamical Systems (chaired by Jurgen Perl) Coaching (chaired by Stuart Morgan) Football and Media (chaired by Daniel Link) All these will take place in the context of the wonderful social environment of Dagstuhl and a number of unmeetings. (A note about unmeetings (via Jay Cross): New approaches create meetings that people enjoy, often organized in scant time, at minimal cost....
