Announcing: Quantified Self Europe Conference, November 26-27

August 3, 2011

It’s an exciting day, brought to you by a team of dedicated QS’ers. We are hereby announcing the first Quantified Self Europe Conference, to be held November 26-27, 2011, in Amsterdam.

Our first conference this past May in Mountain View was a success by however you’d like to measure it – people said it was transformative (“best conference ever!”), new collaborations were launched, it sold out and paid for itself, and we had a great time putting it on. So we’re doing it again, in Europe, to allow QS enthusiasts from different parts of the world to join in, and to explore some fun new topics.

This is a hands-on, collaborative conference for users and tool makers interested in self-tracking. It will be a “working meeting” for the QS community, where we will gather, inspire, and learn from each other as we share and collaborate on self-tracking projects. We will also explore the potential effects of self-tracking on ourselves and society.

QS founder Gary Wolf will be speaking, and all attendees are welcome to present their projects! We already have people coming who are working on:

  • wearable sensors
  • open source ECG monitors
  • “collecting silence”
  • designing patient-facing clinical information
  • mobile psychological sampling
  • life hacking
  • mood/location mashups

The first block of tickets is €75, and we only have 250 spots for this conference, so please register early to make sure you get a spot. We look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam!

I’d also like to send out a giant thank you to our lead sponsor, Philips, who is making this possible, as well as Basis, HealthTap, CureTogether, and more sponsors to be announced soon! Your generous support of QS is greatly appreciated by our community.

THE QUANTIFIED SELF is about making personally relevant discoveries using our own self-collected data. We call this practice everyday science, a name that emphasizes its nonprofessional character. Lately, we've been organizing small group projects that show how collaboration can make individual projects easier. Today we're publishing a detailed white paper documenting the design and implementation of our recent "Bloodtesters" PLR, hoping it will be useful to others who follow in our footsteps.
