Foreword: This book contains the proceedings of the 5th International Congress on Sport Sciences Research and Technology Support (icSPORTS 2017), which is taking place in Funchal, Madeira, Portugal from 30 to 31 October 2017. icSPORTS is co-organized by Universidade da Madeira and had Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute (M-ITI) as a local partner. icSPORTS 2017 is sponsored by the Institute for Systems and Technologies of Information, Control and Communication (INSTICC) and held in cooperation with Società Italiana delle Scienze Motorie e Sportive (SISMES), European College of Sports and Exercise Physicians (E.C.O.S.E.P), European Society of Movement Analysis for Adults and Children (ESMAC), European Association for Sport Management (EASM), International Sports Engineering Association (ISEA), European College of Sport Science (ECSS), International Society of Biomechanics (ISB), the European Federation of Sport Psychology (FEPSAC), European Society of Biomechanics (ESB), Sociedade Portuguesa de Artroscopia e Traumatologia Desportiva (SPAT), Portuguese Society of Physical Education (SPEF), Portuguese Sports Federation for Persons with Disabilities (FPDD), International Association of Computer Science in Sport (IACSS), Portuguese Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (SPMFR), Associação Portuguesa de Fisioterapeutas (APF) and Grupo de Interesse em Fisioterapia do Desporto (GIFD). The Congress Technical Program includes oral presentations and poster presentations, organized in four simultaneous tracks: Computer Systems in Sports, Health and Support Technology, Signal Processing in Human Movement and Sport Performance and Support Technology. All full papers as well as all short papers are included in this book of proceedings. The congress includes also a thematic session on Exergaming as a Strategic Tool to Promote Functional Fitness in Older People, chaired by Élvio Gouveia of the University of Madeira. A major aspect of the program is the inclusion of three plenary keynote lectures held by internationally renowned researchers, namely: Prof. Dr. Gert-Peter Brüggemann (Institute of Biomechanics and Orthopaedics, German Sport University Cologne, Germany), Dr. Andrey Koptyug (Mid Sweden University, Sweden) and Prof. Dr. Andreas Mierau (International University of Health, Exercise and Sports (LU:NEX), Luxembourg). icSPORTS received 40 submissions from all continents, of which 18% are presented as full papers. To evaluate each submission, a blinded review was performed by the Program Committee, whose members are highly qualified researchers in icSPORTS topic areas. It is planned to publish a short list of revised and extended versions of presented papers with Springer in a CCIS Series book. All papers and extended abstracts presented at this congress will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library. Congresses are also meeting places where collaborative projects can emerge from social contacts amongst the participants. Therefore, to promote the development of research and professional networks, the congress includes in its program a Social Event & Banquet in the evening of October 31 at Blandy’s Wine Lodge. We would like to express our thanks to all participants. First of all, to the authors whose quality work is the essence of this congress. Secondly, to all members of the Program Committee and Auxiliary Reviewers who helped us with their expertise. We would also like to thank the invited speakers for their excellent contribution in sharing their knowledge and vision. Finally, a word of appreciation for the hard work of the secretariat: organizing a congress of this level is a task that can only be achieved by the collaborative effort of a dedicated and highly capable team. We wish you all an inspiring congress and an unforgettable stay in the lovely region of Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. We hope to meet you again next year for icSPORTS 2018, details of which soon will be available at http://www.icsports.org. (More)
