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 Shanghai

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
  • Peter O’Donohue.

There are 61 oral presentations at the conference too. I am presenting a paper on Friday afternoon.

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.
