Topic Archives: QS17
This year’s QS conference will be in Amsterdam on June 17/18, 2017. QS17 is a ”carefully curated unconference,” which means his means that all of the sessions are proposed by our attendees. We spend about six months before the conference starts getting in touch with everybody and working together to create something that we can all be inspired by and learn from.
We can’t help being a bit nervous at the start. It’s impossible to know in advance what you are all working on until we ask – and then you amaze us. An incredible amount of experimentation and knowledge making has been happening since your last meeting, and we’re seeing all kinds of novel metrics, methods and discoveries. (This year, I’m especially interested in learning more about tracking using 3d body scans, pulse wave velocity, and muscle activation.)
Typically, we don’t release the program until it’s closer to the event. But we are so thrilled by how the program is developing that we can’t resist giving a preview of what’s coming. This is not the whole picture – and there is still time to suggest a session if you have something you want to share. But here’s the latest QS17 program, as of today. Just remember, it is only a preview, and it’s going to grow and change.
And if you haven’t registered yet, please don’t delay. There are a limited number of tickets left! Register for QS17.
We’ve been working for many months to organize our next Quantified Self conference, and now we’re ready to open QS17 for registration. We’re going to Amsterdam, and we hope you’ll join us.
This will be the fourth time we’ve held the conference in Amsterdam at our favorite venue just outside the Amsterdam city center. Those of you who have already been to a QS conference here will understand why: This calm, beautiful, and extremely well located hotel, just a short walk from the canal ring, is a perfect place to work together and learn from each other.
QS17 is what we call a “Carefully Curated Unconference.” We’ll have over 100 individual sessions, all of which are proposed and lead by conference attendees. We work closely with all the participants in advance, based on what we know of your projects, work and interests. The final program lineup is released a few days before the event. So please let us know what you’re working on when you register.
Due to the size of the venue, attendance is strictly limited to 350 people. The first hundred people to register can sign up for €250 for the two day conference. So please don’t delay.
See you in June!
