Sports Technology and Applied Research Symposium

The AIS Sports Technology and Applied Research Symposium [STARS] is taking a new approach this year and we invite you to register your interest for a full calendar of events in 2022.

STARS focuses on driving innovation in Australian sport and we’re still planning a major three-day conference in October, with live and virtual options. But in 2022 we’re also introducing shorter online sessions on April 27 and June 29 to keep the ideas, insights and innovation flowing all year round.

You can expect the usual list of global speakers as well as the chance to mix with sport and exercise researchers, technologists, and high performance network personnel.
