MyExperience at Measuring Behavior 2010

MyExperience will be discussed during a mini-workshop at Measuring Behavior 2010, the 7th International Conference on Methods and Techniques in Behavioral Research in Eindhoven, Netherlands. Details below:

J├╝rgen Stumpp (Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Karlsruhe, Germany)

Aim of the meeting
In this user meeting we will show an overview of hand-held computer software solutions for psychological and behavioral monitoring. With this user meeting we want to provide a forum in which we can discuss the open-source MyExperience software as a solution for Psychological and Behavioral Monitoring. MyExperience is a context-aware data collection platform for capturing objective and subjective data as it is experienced. The MyExperience project was started by Intel Research, Seattle and the University of Washington in the spring of 2005. During the last year we ported the Platform to newer mobile phones and made several improvements and extensions which we would like to discuss with the participants. We would like to know if MyExperience fits the needs of the researchers in the field of behavioral monitoring and want to discuss further developments of MyExperience.

We would like to do a small presentation on how MyExperience works and how it can help researchers in different fields to do studies with it. Also we would like to show how we improved MyExperience to be a complete solution for behavioral monitoring. We will bring a functional prototype that demonstrates the current development state and how MyExperience can be used in combination with mobile sensors that monitor physiological signals and triggers questionnaires on the hand-held computer.
