Modeling and Simulation of Sport Games, Sport Movements, and Adaptations to Training

Diese Seminarbeschreibung wurde vor dem Seminar auf unseren Webseiten veröffentlicht und bei der Einladung zum Seminar verwendet.


Computational modeling and simulation are essential to analyze human motion and interaction in sports science. Applications range from game analysis, issues in training science like training load-adaptation relationship, motor control & learning, to biomechanical analysis. The motivation of this seminar is to enable an interdisciplinary exchange between sports and computer scientists to advance modeling and simulation technologies in selected fields of applications: sport games, sport movements and adaptations to training.

New challenges appear due to the enormous amount of data being captured within training and competition domains. Problems that will be addressed are: model selection, data representation (i.e., static or dynamic visualization of modeling results), the development of modeling tools for offline and online (real-time) analysis, the use of appropriate validation methods, logistics and methods of dealing with “big data” (i.e. accessing and running analyses on data which is stored across multiple machines), data integrity (i.e. coping with noisy/missing data), and fusing multiple information sources (e.g., vision and wearable sensors).

In the seminar, experts on modeling and simulation from computer science, sport science, and industry are invited to discuss recent developments, problems and future tasks in these fields. The main purpose of this seminar is to discuss the interdisciplinary process of modeling and simulation, with an emphasis in the cooperation between computer scientists and sport scientists as a cornerstone in the advance of this field. The seminar will focus on three application areas: sport games, sport movements, and adaptations to training. In addition, contributions to the epistemic basics of modeling and simulation are welcome.
