Wearables are becoming mainstream technology, however there is still room for improvement in the sports domain of this field. Monitoring performance and collecting large scale data are of high interest among athletes - amateurs and professionals alike. The current state-of-the art wearable solutions for sports analysis are able to provide individual statistics to the user, however they have shortcomings in certain aspects, such as isolating and visualizing important information for the user, beyond statistics. This workshop focuses on the application of wearable technology in sports. We will explore novel ideas and application scenarios of how sensors and actuators are capable of supporting athletes in monitoring and improving their performance. We will discuss the design space of the domain by bringing together experts from various communities and exchanging ideas from different perspectives on wearables for sports applications. Participants will collaboratively produce sports related prototype applications.
