Call For Papers
Let me kindly inform you that the 4th International Congress on Sport Sciences Research and Technology Support (icSPORTS 2016 - http://www.icsports.org) steering committee cordially invites you to submit a paper to the icSPORTS 2016 Congress, to be held in Porto, Portugal. The deadline for paper submission is scheduled for May 26, 2016.
In the XXI century most human activities, including sports, are becoming more and more technological. Engineering in general and Information Technology in particular are becoming an important 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 imaginable application areas in sports. This congress intends to be a meeting point of both academics and practitioners, in order to exchange ideas and developed synergies.
