Get a Move On Symposium – May 2017

Earlier this year I submitted an application to get funding to write a white paper for the EPSRC-funded Get a Move On (GAMO) network. I  was lucky enough to have my application accepted, and as such was invited to present my white paper, entitled “The current state of self-tracking technologies and interventions for encouraging increased activity and how to assess them: a critical review” at the first GAMO Symposium, which was held in sunny Wembley on the 24th and 25th May.

The aim of the symposium was to bring together experts from a variety of areas, including sensor networks, data analytics, interactive visualisation, human computer interaction, online citizen engagement, behaviour change, sports and exercise. There were a variety of presentations, not just of the funded white-papers, but also of ongoing research projects and student posters.

I’ll be sure to post my paper on here as soon as I’ve heard back from the reviewers, until then you can have a look at some of the tweets from during my talk:
