Simulation and Modelling in Sports Engineering

In accordance with the guidelines set out by the European White Book on Sports, the ISC 2008 conference will for the first time organise a workshop on simulation and modelling in sports engineering.

The workshop will cover simulation and modelling in:

  • Behaviour, ergonomics, biomechanics
  • Physical Activity and Well-Being
  • Performance Enhancement and Sports Engineering
  • Sports Dynamics
  • Applications such as:
    • Wearables (intelligent clothes, bioshirts and footwear)

    • Mobile Motion Tracking Services
    • Sensor Networks
    • Training Equipment (instruments for prestation monitoring and

    • Sport stimulation (technological innovations)
    • Bicycle, Racing Car and Sailing Yacht Design

RFID Workshop

Radio Frequency IDentification has been a “hype” for the last three to five years in the logistics world. Almost every company has started an initial research on how to apply RFID in its business process under pressure of large customers. However, it is now becoming clear that application of RFID requires more than just attaching tags and making connection with a reader in order to become profitable. Although the technology looks still very promising, the consequences for products and processes should be known before even starting an implementation. The variety in RFID tags and the extended number of possibilities in combining these tags with other technologies (sensors, information systems), makes it hard to select an implementation which is “first time right”.
This session will highlight the problems that still exist with RFID and discuss both the capabilities and restrictions of the technology. It will try to answer the questions:
1. What is RFID?
2. How to apply RFID?
3. What are the new fields of application?
4. Should my company start with RFID?

Submissions for RFID can be sent in here

Workshop on Intelligent Transport Systems

A broad range of diverse technologies, known collectively as intelligent transportation systems (ITS), holds the answer to many of our transportation problems. ITS is comprised of a number of technologies, including information processing, communications, control, and electronics. Joining these technologies to our transportation system will save lives, time and money. ITS enables people and goods to move more safely and efficiently through a state-of-the-art, intermodal transportation system. Simulating this aspect of transportation is one of the major challenges of our time.

Workshop Augmented Reality and Pervasive Systems in Simulation

Pervasive systems are likely to become the next programming paradigm for the information society. They will allow us to implement the augmented reality and the ubiquitous computing ideas. Pervasive systems in factories enable operators and machines to interact on a common virtual level which is also capable of simulating the real part. Among other related topics, this track includes: ubiquitous computing, augmented reality, mixed reality, wireless networks, hybrid systems, simulation models, human-computer interaction, artificial intelligence, security, scalability, fault tolerance, smart devices, and pervasive services.
