Lecture Theatre South (LT01)
TEMPER is an interdisciplinary workshop designed to transfer scientific expertise, training & preparation methods, and technological know-how among academics and experts working for the military and the sports industry. Ever since the creation of the Olympic Games by the ancient Greeks, athletic contest has represented an arena in which the warfighter’s virtues could be tested in time of peace. Inspired by the deep analogies between athletic and military training, our interdisciplinary workshop will bring military scholars and sport scientists (broadly construed) together in order to cultivate collaborations and share expertise. World-renowned experts will participate in the first TEMPER workshop to discuss the role played by psychological preparation, training methods, and cognitive-enhancement technologies for modeling, monitoring, and augmenting skillful performance on the sport field and the battlefield. As excellence in military training importantly draws on psychological methods, sophisticated cognitive models, and technological innovations, the workshop focuses on the improvement of the warfighter’s skills and cognitive abilities through training, exercise, and augmentation.
