The scope of this interdisciplinary workshop is to bring together experts from physiology, sports medicine, engineering and physics. With the rapid development of wearable technologies that can monitor a plethora of biomechanical and physiological data during exercise, an enormous amount of data becomes available. However, it appears that there is a lack of models and tools that can help turn these big data into usable and meaningful information.
Invited are prominent researchers working in the general fields of physiology, medicine, physics and engineering with background in fields including exercise physiology, biomechanics, engineering of novel sensors, cardiovascular response and variability, and application of statistical physics to physiological measures. With the organization of this workshop, we intend to bring together experts from various fields within and outside MIT to explore current and future directions for this newly emerging interdisciplinary field.
Organizer: Thorsten Emig, MIT-CNRS joint lab / University Paris-Saclay, France.
Invited speakers are experts in the fields of physiology, medicine, engineering and physics.
