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 conference intends to be a meeting point for both academics, sport professionals and practitioners to exchange ideas and develop synergies.

icSPORTS is organized in 4 major tracks:

1 – Computer Systems in Sports
2 – Health and Support Technology
3 – Signal Processing in Human Movement
4 – Sport Performance and Support Technology
