The Australian Institute of Sport (AIS) is a sports training institution in Australia.[2] The Institute's headquarters were opened in 1981 and are situated in Canberra (the capital city of Australia). The 66-hectare site campus is in the northern suburb of Bruce, but some of the institute's programs are located in other Australian cities. The AIS is a division of the Australian Sports Commission.

The Australian Sports Commission is governed by a board of commissioners who bring a range of expertise to guide the work of the ASC. Our board includes former athletes, business people and journalists, each with extensive, first-hand knowledge of Australia’s sporting landscape.

Yesterday we met with David T Martin, Senior Psychologist - Scientific and Technical Lead, Strategic Capability Specialist from the AIS Combat Centre, Cycling Australia and AIS Physiology. David briefed us on a range of initiatives he is involved with that incorporate the use of wearable technology, networked systems and data analysis. David showed a great deal of interest in the UCWTS event and we look forward to continued discussions as to the role AIS will play in the inaugural University of Canberra Wearable Technology Symposium (UCWTS), to be held on the University campus on Tuesday 28 and Wednesday 29 October 2014.
