The meetup will take place at the University of Warsaw's Faculty of Chemistry building (room 141), located at Pasteura 1 (near the Grójecka-Wawelska intersection).
18:00-18:30 – Social time and a science fair/workshop.
18:30-18:45 – Welcome and announcements.

The story of Cukeriada - a tool designed to educate children suffering from type 1 diabetes about their condition by gamifying the learning process.
What can we learn from measuring heart rate variability?
How to lose 40 kg thanks to self-tracking (RunKeeper, MyFitnessPal, NTC).
Insights from 23andMe's genotyping.
Lark Silent Alarm Clock - how it was launched and where it is now.
How activity and sleep tracking can structure your day and why mood-measuring apps can be the best motivational tools (Jawbone Up, Moodscope).
The discussion during the first part of the meetup will focus both on the quantified self as a global trend and the Quantified Self organization.
How do various biohacks, wearable technologies, apps and devices for self-tracking or lifelogging affect our daily lives and what we can do to understand them better and facilitate the cross-pollination of science, technology, business and new media?
It helps to first answer the question: "What is the Quantified Self Now?", which Whitney Erin Boesel, a social scientist from University of California at Santa Cruz tried to do in a very informative essay: http://quantifiedself.com/2013/05/what-is-the-quantified-self-now
Let us know if you want to demo some tools during the science fair/workshop time - we will set up a corner for you. :)
And if you would like to give a show&tell presentation, please send us a message with a short summary of what you would like to talk about. You can find a detailed description of a typical show&tell here: http://quantifiedself.com/2011/09/our-three-prime-questions
