Une excellente opportunité de consolider nos liens avec la communauté internationale du QS :

"Personal Informatics in the Wild: Hacking Habits for Health & Happiness" is a workshop part of the academic Computer-Human Interaction (CHI) 2013 conference. In the workshop we discuss challenges and explore opportunities for human-computer interaction in the growing field of personal informatics (self-tracking and quantified self). We address research topics including ubiquitous computing, life logging, visualizations, persuasive technologies, interaction design, psychology of self-knowledge, and self-awareness. During the workshop we discuss technical and design issues related to monitoring and feedback of personal behavioral information.

The workshop is organized as a two-day hackathon where the participants work together on creating prototype personal informatics apps. At the last day of the workshop we have an informal joint dinner/meetup including the workshop participants and people from the QS Paris meetup group interested in self-tracking and quantified self. Workshop participants are invited to show the results of their workshop prototyping and QS Paris members are invited to shared there self-tracking experiences.
