Updates to the QS17 program

Our sessions come from our attendees and we try to leave the program open for as long as we can before we send it to the printer. Still, some things come in after the deadline and we can’t resist finding a spot for them. Below are new sessions that will be happening in addition to the printed program:

Elke Beck
I’m a human-computer interaction researcher and I’m currently exploring how sensor-based self-tracking technologies can help older adults (65+ years) to reflect on their physical activity/ sedentary habits in daily life. I’ve developed several low-tech,  interactive prototypes which people can use for tracking and reflecting their physical activity behaviour.

BLOOD VALUE RESPONSES TO FOOD, FASTING, AND EXERCISE
Ben Best
I have been monitoring the way my blood glucose, ketone, and triglyceride respond to various foods by making hourly measurements 6 to 10 hours after eating the food. I practice a ketogenic diet, and often fast. Every few months I get very detailed laboratory blood tests.
