Summary : Most human activities, including sports, are becoming more and more technological. Engineering in general and Information Technology in particular are important in the support for many activities directly or indirectly related to sport sciences, including improvement of physical activities, sports medicine, biotechnology and nutrition, sports management, and all other application areas in sports. This congress intends to be a meeting point for both academics, sport professionals and practitioners to exchange ideas and develop synergies.

Authors are encouraged to highlight the benefits of technology for sports either in general or in a particular application. Ideas regarding sp orts related issues using technology will arise from this congress. Papers describing case studies, advanced prototypes, systems, tools and techniques indicating future directions in sports technology are particularly of interest. Papers should describe original work in any of the areas listed below. Accepted complete papers, presented at the congress, will be published in the Proceedings of icSPORTS, with ISBN, both on paper and digitally. All presented papers will be indexed and included in the SCITEPRESS digital library for increased visibility.
Acceptance will be based on quality, relevance and originality. Both full research reports and work-in-progress reports are welcome. Presentation format can be chosen between oral and poster sessions.
