Research Vision

We create the foundations for scientific performance engineering and measurement in esports.

We present methods for systematic improvement, management, and tracking of player performance by means of changes in interface technology and training.

We report best practices and experiences from a longitudinal, rigorous study of interventions in player performance and training.

Led by Professor Byungjoo Lee
