13th WCPAS2021 & 13th IACSS2021 – Digital Contingency

Dear Partners, Colleagues and Friends,

We, the organizational committee, are as excited as ever for the upcoming WCPAS&IACSS in September 2021. Currently however, the situation regarding COVID-19, its progression and the potential state of the situation in 2021 is still unclear. Even though we plan to hold the WCPAS&IACSS in physical form in Vienna, in the name of foresight we are starting to plan for the unfortunate, if unlikely, contingency of having to hold the Joint-Congress in digital form. This means that regardless of the situation in the potential future the WCPAS&IACSS will be held, not postponed or cancelled.

As always, we look forward to a productive and fruitful congress and hope we can welcome you to Vienna soon.

Yours sincerely,

Organizational Committee


13th WCPAS2021 & 13th IACSS2021 – Joint Congress

Dear Partners, Colleagues and Friends,

We are very excited to announce that the 13th World Congress of Performance Analysis of Sport (WCPAS2021; previously WCPAS2020) will be held in conjunction with the 13th International Symposium on Computer Science in Sport (IACSS2021) in Vienna from the 29 August – 01 September 2021.

Merging these two congresses now enables us to not only widen our scope and outreach but diversify our programme. As a consequence we are fortunate to host keynote speakers from the field of performance analysis and also invite internationally renowned speakers from the field of computer science in sport. We are confident that this new joint congress will provide a larger platform for academics, professionals and people in industry to present their findings and promote international exchange.

We are looking forward to welcoming all esteemed colleagues from both fields of research here in Vienna next year.

All dates, deadlines and locations will remain the same. 

Yours sincerely,

Prof. Dr. Arnold Baca
