2016 IACSS Congress / Quadrennial Congress of the IACCS

Welcome to the 3rd   International Congress on Sports Science and Computer Science In Sports

On behalf of the Organizing committee, the Faculty of Physical Education and the University of Brasilia, it is our great pleasure to invite you to attend the 3rd International Congress on Sports Science and Computer Science In Sports in Brasilia. The congress will be held between 31st of July and 3rd of August 2016 at the Scientific and Technological Entrepreneurship Foundation (FINATEC), which is located at University of Brasilia at the north side of the city, close by the Paranoa Lake.

Similar to other IACCS conferences we aim to attract many early stage researchers but also well-known experts to ensure a valuable information exchange at all levels and formats (posters, oral and plenary sessions). Possibly, motivating the discovery of original problems and the development of future projects, collaborations, and friendships!!

Of course, attending a conference is not only a matter of getting in touch with other scientists but also to immerse a bit in the spirit of the hosting city and its surroundings. Brasilia was planned and developed by Lucio Costa and Oscar Niemeyer in 1956 in order to move the capital from Rio de Janeiro to a more central location of Brazil. The landscape architect was Roberto Burle Marx. The city’s design divides it into numbered blocks as well as sectors for specified activities, such as the Hotel Sector, the Banking Sector and the Embassy Sector. Built up from zero (well, there was the marvelous Cerrado nature there), after some years Brasília was chosen as a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its modernist architecture and uniquely artistic urban planning.

We look forward to seeing you all in Brasilia in 2016.

We recommend you to generate your own pdf document from the Microsof WORD template file and then upload your own pdf file. We noticed that the automatic pdf conversion performed by our platform could cause errors (eg: spaces eliminated between words, equations not interpreted correctly, …).
The paper must be written in English.
The paper can be TWO or FOUR A4 pages in length, single spaced, in Arial size 11 font with normal character spacing. Set your page to A4 portrait (30cm high by 21cm wide). The printing area should be 25cm by 16cm. Set the left and right margins at 2.5cm and the top and bottom margins at 2.5cm. The printing (other than formulas and tables) should be fully (right and left) justified. Do NOT indent the first line of paragraphs or sections.
Use one or two lines to write the TITLE in BOLD CAPITAL LETTERS. Skip one line and type the author(s) first name and surname in bold lower case. On the next line give the author(s) affiliation(s), city, state, and country in bold lower case. The title, authors and affiliations should be centered. Skip another line.
Right and left justify all the following text (except formulas and tables).
Write an abstract of no more than 10 lines indented 1cm from both the right and left margins in Arial size 10 font. Do NOT use a heading for the abstract and write the abstract as an unbroken single paragraph.

Your paper should have the following structure: An INTRODUCTION indicating the significance and purpose of the research and citing the primary literature sources. A description of the METHODS of data collection, data analysis, and research design. A RESULTS and DISCUSSION section. These sections may be combined if desired in the interests of saving space. A CONCLUSION should include reference to implications and applications of the work to sport and exercise. A major goal of the IACSS is to bridge the gap between computer scientists and sports practitioners in teaching, coaching, training, and rehabilitation of participants in sports. Your conclusion should highlight potential benefits of the study for practitioners. If your study is an advancement of methods of analysis or the development of new equipment, then the conclusion should indicate how this could lead to assisting practitioners. An alphabetical list of REFERENCES.
Do not skip lines between paragraphs or before lower level headings. Formulas, figures, and tables should be formatted in the style adopted by the International Journal of Computer Science applied to sport.
