Announcing: The First Quantified Self Conference, May 28-29

January 13, 2011

Another day, another exciting announcement! Today we are announcing the first Quantified Self Conference, to be held May 28-29, 2011, at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California.

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 founders Kevin Kelly and Gary Wolf will grace the main stage, along with a series of “best of QS Show&Tell” talks. However, most of the conference will be interactive, diving into breakout sessions being defined by attendees in a wiki available to those who register. Some of the suggested topics so far:

  • Mood Tracking
  • Data Visualization
  • Tales, lessons, and tips for running great self-experiments
  • Cracking Behavior Change
  • History of Self-Reflective Technologies
  • Ethics of Self-Tracking
  • Sleep Experiments
  • I’ve got all this data… but how do I interpret it?

Last Friday, we pre-announced the conference to our QS meetup groups, and the first 136 tickets were scooped up in only 6 days! There is a fixed limit of 400 attendees, and we expect to sell out, so if you’d like to come, please make sure to register early.

Also, a huge round of applause to our conference sponsors for helping to make this possible: Autodesk, Humana, Kaiser, Fujitsu, Intel, GAIN Fitness, Genomera, Quantter, and WellnessFX. Thank you!
