We’ve been holding Quantified Self Conferences since 2011. Every year since then we’ve been approached by scientists and researchers in the academic community to help them find a way to incorporate their work and their ideas into our structure. After a few years of holding back, listening, and watching the research community become engaged with other scientists and the real-world QS practitioners we’re ready to take that next step.
We are excited to announce today that we are inviting scientists and non-scientists to join a research oriented poster session at our upcoming Quantified Self European Conference on May 10th and 11th.
These sessions are a way for us to support interesting work that doesn’t fit into our established show&tell format, including research results from academic and scientific studies relevant to QS practitioners. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
- Validity, reliability, usability, and effectiveness of self-tracking devices
- Experiment design
- Statistical and/or visualization methods
- Social and psychological investigation into self-tracking practices
- Social science research on the QS community
Our hope is that these posters and the conversations around them will help us (scientists and non-scientists) learn from each other, stimulate new ideas/projects, and to uncover new applications for the research findings.
How to submit a poster
The process is very simple. Simply send us a draft of your poster submission via email. We will be accepting submissions until April 14, 2014.
