|The 2014 Conference of the International Sports Engineering Association|
We are pleased to announce further details of the 2014 Conference of the International Sports Engineering Association (ISEA). Delegates will enjoy a hugely stimulating conference week. The scientific programme will provide the opportunity to discover and debate the latest developments in sports research, whilst the extensive social programme will provide unique experiences and help to foster friendships old and new. Full details of the scientific and social programme can be found here, www.isea2014.com.
Abstract deadline approaching!
Industry and academic researchers are invited to submit their original work for inclusion in the conference proceedings. The publication process has two stages:
1. Submission of a short abstract detailing the nature and scope of the research; if work is not yet complete, the abstract can be a statement of intent. The deadline for the submission of abstracts is 12th July 2013. Submit your abstract here, www.isea2014reg.com.
2. Successful authors will be invited to submit a full 6 page paper before 1st November 2013. Full papers will be blind peer reviewed and published by Elsevier Procedia Engineering in a hard bound book of proceedings, and online at Science Direct.
We are delighted to announce that the scientific programme will include keynote presentations from four world leading researchers;
Professor Mont Hubbard – University of California, Davis
Dr Darren Stefanyshyn – University of Calgary
Dr Martin Strangwood – University of Birmingham
Professor Steve Haake – Sheffield Hallam University.
The work of these researchers has been hugely influential in establishing the sports engineering discipline, and their presentations are sure to be conference highlights.
