Conference paper submission information and templates

Conference paper submission must be made through the Easychair submission portal. Any submissions attempted by other formats will not be considered for review.

Conference papers must be prepared using the MS Word template available on the conference website and Easychair.  Each conference paper is limited to two pages (Calibri 12 pts) including a combined total of two figures and tables.  Please ensure all visual content and captions are clear and legible, even when printed (≥ 300 dpi) and please ensure a minimum font size of Calibri 9 pt across all figures and tables.  Please submit your conference paper in pdf format through the EasyChair portal by the deadline given above.  Submissions that do not adhere to the guidelines provided are unlikely to be accepted. Please specify in the submission system if you would like to be considered for a Sports Engineering journal submission.

All conference papers accepted by the review committee, including those where authors have requested to be considered for publishing in the ISEA journal Sports Engineering, will be published in the Engineering of Sport 15 Conference Proceedings.  Accepted conference papers will be assigned a DOI and will be collated in the proceedings and published online.

Authors of selected conference papers will be invited by the ISEA 2024 Scientific Programme Committee to submit a Research Article or Technical Note to the ISEA journal Sports Engineering.  These submissions will need to follow the Sports Engineering Journal submission guidelines and all manuscripts will undergo the journal’s standard peer review procedures prior to being accepted for publication.
