Degree project proposal

Implementation of a decision support system for ice hockey player scouting

This project is offered within a cooperation between the Sports Analytics group at LiU and Linköping Hockey Club (LHC).

In this project the aim is to implement a decision support system that helps sports teams to analyze data relevant for scouting purposes. The input to the system will be different kinds of data including different performance measures. The system needs to be able to visualize different kinds of input data and their correlations, allow for filtering according to different features and enable comparisons. An analysis of suitable techniques is part of the thesis work. The data as well as expertise on the importance of different features will be provided by LHC. LHC personell will also evaluate the system.

In addition to be able to apply knowledge in visualization, data management, decision support and user interfaces gained during earlier studies, the students have the opportunity to get insight in the workings of an elite sports team in Sweden.

The thesis is available for pairs of BSc students or for (pairs of) MSc students.
