  • First Announcement JISS 3 24-26 nov 2004 INSEP PARIS

    > 24 - 26 november 2004, INSEP, PARIS, FRANCE
    > Sport performance is produced in a given cultural environment, and refers
    > to a number of meaningful social-technical dimensions that organise it.
    > Traditional approaches to knowledge do not integrate situational factors
    > (or only partly), and the dynamics associated to them. Today there is a
    > more affirmed need to consider the context in the various domains of
    > analysis of sport performance. However this notion remains difficult to
    > surround. This congress aims to explore its different meanings and bring
    > concepts and elements of understanding to support this approach in order
    > to better comprehend sport performance.
    > · Symposium: The analysis of training: a qualitative stake in the
    > preparation to elite performance.
    > At the highest level, sport training is a complex process producing
    > specific and systematic effects on performance in situations of
    > competition. Today, a scientific follow-up of training has become an asset
    > to refine the measuring of procedures preparing to elite performance. The
    > objective of this symposium is to take stock of the contribution of
    > science and technology in the better understanding of training processes.
    > · Symposium: The analysis of elite performance in a competitive
    > context: questions and methods.
    > The "laboratory" has for long been the place where scientific research on
    > sport performance was taking place. Today, with the support of new
    > technologies, a number of researches are conducted intending to analyse
    > performance from data collected directly in a situation of competition.
    > The interests and limits of this type of investigation need to be
    > questioned. This symposium aims to illustrate through a number of examples
    > this direction that research on elite performance is taking.
    > · Symposium: Simulation : A new instrument in research, training and
    > education?
    > Together with the development of new technologies, simulation appears as
    > a method - still limited today - to dynamically re-construct sport
    > situations. The objective of this symposium is to understand the
    > operations involved in the identification and tuning of the situations of
    > simulation and their associated tools, and also to analyse the methodology
    > used in the perspective of training and education of the sport actors
    > involved.
    > · Symposium: The role of the context in the analysis of the activity
    > in elite sport.
    > Although action and context are familiar notions in sport sciences, their
    > relationship is not often explicitly outlined and studied. The objective
    > of this symposium is to conceive the complex relationship that context and
    > action maintain, and to elaborate a number of directions for sport
    > engineering and training.
    > · Symposium: The analysis of the systems producing elite performance:
    > the example of the delegations attending the Olympic Games.
    > Sport success at international level implies that, the systems used by all
    > leading nations preparing international competition to produce elite
    > performance, be known. For Olympic events, the study of these systems
    > includes the analysis of the composition of the official delegations
    > (athletes, Federations representatives, medical staff, scientists) and of
    > the athletes social-demographic profile (age, occupation, etc.). The
    > objective of this session is to examine the characteristics of the
    > delegations attending the Olympics in the light of their competition
    > results.
