The International Sports Analytics Conference and Exhibition (ISACE) series (new)

Pre-conference workshop, 27 October 2023, Singapore

1st ISACE, 15 - 17 July 2024, Paris
(one week before summer olympics)

Welcome to the International Sports Analytics Conference and Exhibition (ISACE) series

Sports analytics is the application of AI, data science, psychology, and smart devices to improve sports performance, strategy, and decision-making. It involves collecting, processing, and interpreting data from various sources such as video footage, performance metrics, and scouting reports, and using this information to gain insights into player and team performance, prevent injury, and help coaches and team managers to make more informed decisions and optimize their resources to achieve better results.

There are various sports analytics seminars, satellite workshops (associated with major AI and Data Science conferences), and regional conferences (e.g., MIT Sloan Sports Analytics). The vision of this new International Sports Analytics Conference and Exhibition (ISACE) series is to bring leading academics, researchers, coaches, psychologists, managers and technologists together to advance state-of-the-art of sports analytics.

The location is to move around the world's major cities with a timing that is likely to be 1-2 weeks before or after a major sporting event which may form one of the themes of the conference.

The pre-conference workshop will be in Singapore on 27 Oct 2023.


The first ISACE (15 - 17 July 2024) will be in Paris (one week before The 2024 Summer Olympics). Proceedings will be published in Springer LNCS series. Please see the ISACE 2024 conference website for details.


The second ISACE (Jan/Feb 2025) will be in Melbourne (one week after the 2025 Australia Open tennis).


This workshop serves as a preparation for the first conference to get interested people and organisations together and discuss the trendy topics and future directions for the conference. This workshop is co-located with the PRDC 2023 and ATVA 2023 conferences.
