The Australian Sports Analysis Meeting (ASAM), which is a bi-annual event which gathers Australian sports scientists and academics to discuss how data can be used to improve the way we live and play sports, is back for its sixth edition.
The event, which was launched in 2012, has grown in popularity, attracting the likes of the US Olympic Committee, AFL, and the NRL, among others.
The ASAM is an annual gathering of world-class Australian researchers, academics and sports executives who discuss research, trends, and emerging trends in sport analytics.
It’s the brainchild of the Australian Institute of Sport and will continue until the end of the year.AICSA’s chair, Professor Alan O’Sullivan, said it was an important opportunity to hear from the best and brightest in the sport and understand how data could be used for the betterment of our sport.
“The data that we collect, what we know about athletes, the way that they play, the data that’s being collected by other teams, how they communicate and play together, how their game is being used by a team, how teams are being used across sport,” he said.
“So this is a really exciting opportunity for us to get our heads around how we can use that data to help our sport, our nation, and also to develop some of the innovative solutions that we have been looking for in the last couple of years.”
Professor O’Brien said ASAM would continue to have a strong and broad reach across the country.
“It’s going to be a really diverse event and a really powerful event,” he added.
“But it’s also going to have one thing in common with the ASAM itself, it’s going back to being a conference of scientists.”
There are lots of things that we’re going to talk about at ASAM.
I’m looking forward to getting to know some of them and to learning more about what the future holds.
