Following two conferences on the theme of Sports Physics, organised by Ecole Polytechnique during the previous Olympic years (2012 and 2016), the Laboratoire de Physique at Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon, in partnership with the initiative Sciences^2024 is organising a new edition of the Sports Physics conference, which will take place on December 6 to 8, 2021, in Lyon, France.
The main goal in sports physics is to find physical laws that could help understand and improve performances in sports activities. The attendees of the conference will be fundamental and applied physicists (solid mechanics, soft matter, fluid mechanics, computer science, mathematics, statistics) dedicated to sports physics, complemented by athletes, coaches and others interested in the topic, to foster exchanges and collaborations.
The venue will be the Ecole normale supérieure de Lyon, close to the center of Lyon. The week around December 8 is usually a very animated week in Lyon, where a celebration called “Fête des lumières” takes place with various events around the theme of illuminating the city.
We are therefore very happy to invite you to participate to this conference.
