In the XXI century most human activities, including sports, are becoming more and more technological. Engineering in general and Information Technology in particular are becoming an important support for many activities directly or indirectly related to sport sciences, including improvement of physical activities, sports medicine, biotechnology and nutrition, sports management, and all imaginable application areas in sports. This congress intends to be a meeting point of both academics and practitioners, in order to exchange ideas and developed synergies.

This is a major international event in the field of sports technology, organized biennially in collaboration with partners worldwide and leading organizations in this field. The Congress has been held in Australia, Japan, Singapore, USA, Hong Kong and Spain over the last 13 years and in 2017 heads for the first time in Tel Aviv, Israel.

The APCST 2017 aims to connect scientists, entrepreneurs and the industry to jointly understand the needs and develop new solutions relevant for the 21st century in sports and related exercise.

The Congress is open for undergraduate and graduate students in physical education, engineering, physiology, biomechanics, physiotherapy, sports medicine physicians, professional and non-professional athletes, sports media, and investors.
