Title: Digital Futures technology workshop for sports
Zoom: Link will be provided to registered participants
We welcome researchers from all partners of Digital Futures.
Swedish Olympic Committee (SOK) and KTH Royal Institute of Technology invite researchers to a technology workshop for sports. Sports may offer researchers real test cases, data and demonstrable applications of research with potentially high visibility
The purpose of the workshop is to consolidate ongoing research of relevance to elite athletes and regular practitioners for health and well-being. The scope is Olympic and Paralympic winter and summer sports.
The program consists of talks from researchers who work on sports applications and presentations of problems open for study by representatives from SOK.
This workshop is the first event to establish sports as an application area for research within Digital Futures societal challenge Rich and Healthy Life. We welcome researchers from all partners of Digital Futures.
