dvs-Workshop Modelling in Endurance Sports
University of Konstanz, Germany, Sep. 11-13, 2016

Analysing and predicting performance in sports for training and competition is a wide and complex field. Until today most methods heavily rely on the subjective experience of trainers and athletes. Nevertheless, objective mathematical methods and computer-based solutions have become popular during the last years. 

One major challenge is handling the non-linear processes occurring in real world settings. Also most models are abstract and parameters cannot be measured directly. E.g. the size of the energy stores of physiological whole body models are implicitly determined by external measurements. In designing training programs the major difficulty is the appropriate application of load and recovery phases to obtain an optimal adaptation process and reach peak performance. Unfortunately to date very few efforts have been made to solve this problem by mathematical methods.

This workshop aims at mathematical, physiological and computer science related approaches to analyse performance and physiological processes in endurance sports like running, cycling, rowing, skiing and swimming. It brings together experts, student researchers and practitioners in sport science, exercise physiology, applied mathematics, and computer science. Our ambition is to get a brief overview of the current state-of-the-art, discuss present and future challenges, and enhance the exchange within the community. 

The workshop is supported by the German Society of Sport Science (DVS) Section Sport Informatics, by the German National Science Foundation (DFG), and by the University of Konstanz.

Travel support for participants

We are happy to provide travel support for a limited number of international participants in particular for doctoral students and participants from overseas. 

Abstract submission

As the workshop fosters informal discussion of scientific problems and solutions, the contributions can be original, but need not be exclusively unpublished work. Workshop participants are interested in hearing and discussing about the general subject matters as a whole. Thus, foundations of the methods, theoretical frameworks, and their practical application are in the focus rather than the most technical details for a particular aspect of a problem. The contributions must be within the scope of the workshop and will be judged upon the scientific quality of the methods, discussion, and presentation.

Abstracts should be written in English, using the provided templates (Word, LaTeX), with a length of 1-4 pages, and be submitted until June 26, 2016.
