Introducing the ISEA International Lecture Series on Sports Engineering

We are delighted to introduce the ISEA International Lecture Series on Sports Engineering. The lecture series aims to disseminate research activities carried out within the field of sports engineering. The topics covered will include, but not be limited to, biomechanics, development and/or testing of sports equipment, sport performance monitoring, safety and injury prevention.

Once per month, well-known speakers from all over the world will be invited to the lecture series to present their advances in sports engineering related projects. Given the international nature of this event, talk times will be determined based on the time zone of the invited speaker.

Our first lecture will be held on 26th June 2023 where Professor Steph Forrester (Sports Technology Institute, Loughborough University, UK) will give a talk on Player-Surface Traction on Synthetic Turf Pitches. In addition, she will take the opportunity to invite attendees to the upcoming ISEA2024 – 15th International Conference on the Engineering of Sport taking place at Loughborough University from 8-11th July 2024.

If you want to nominate yourself as a future speaker or just want to know more please feel free to get in touch with us!

The Lecture Series is organised by the ISEA Outreach Committee:
