Call for Papers for the 1st Workshop on Action Modelling for Interaction and
Analysis in Smart Sports and Physical Education



The workshop to be held in conjunction with the 22nd ACM International
Conference on Multimodal Interaction  intends to bring together the research
in Machine Learning, Interactive Technology and Sports & Movement Science to
propose multimodal and interactive systems which can be utilized by
coaches/trainers and players during their routine training sessions to
analyse performance and provide real time interactive feedback.


Performance in sports depends on training programs designed by team staff,
with a regime of physical, technical, tactical and perceptual-cognitive
exercises. Depending on how participants perform, exercises are adapted, or
the program may be redesigned. State of the art data science methods have
led to ground breaking changes. Data is collected from sources such as
tracking position and motion of players in basketball, baseball & football
match statistics and volleyball. It is not just limited to sports training;
but can also be extended to any physical exercise based activity such as
dance lessons, aerobics, yoga training etc.


There are multiple examples of using both sensor and computer vision based
approaches for automatic recognition of sports action in numerous sports
e.g. soccer, tennis, table tennis , hockey , basketball and rugby. However,
sports trainers still rely on manual effort to collect and analyse events of
interests related to intended learning focus. The workshop aims to fill the
gap between the state of the art in technological development and the state
of the art in sports and physical education. We aim to bring together the
researchers from these areas and solicit ideas regarding, how the recent
technological advances can be applied in real life sports and physical
education (PE) scenarios in a multidisciplinary and user centric way and
enhance the overall user experience with PE.


We invite papers for frameworks, system ideas (architecture), user studies,
data sets and models, which are or have the potential to be readily applied
in real life training scenarios for sports or recreational physical
activities. The areas of interest include but not limited to:


Multimodal sensors.

Machine Learning.

Computer Vision.

Virtual/Augmented Reality.

Sport and Movement Science

Rehabilitation and injury prevention

Exertion and playful interaction


Sports and Physical Education and Pedagogy
