Session Abstract:The Santa Clara Valley IEEE Communications Society and Silicon Valley TiE (The Indus Entrepreneurs) are pleased to present this workshop on Quantified Self emphasizing the emerging nuances in technology, opportunities and business models in mobile / personal healthcare. Innovations in MEMS / BioMEMS devices and their integration in somatic sensory and monitoring devices enabled by advances in mobile communication has begun to usher in a new era in technology / personal health monitoring startups, cloud-based analytics solutions, investment opportunities, user communities and business paradigms such as WYOD (wear your own device). Silicon Valley leads the world in R&D, technology leadership, software solutions and investment activity when it comes to QS in mobile / personal healthcare. The industry's leading experts are expected to participate at this workshop which will explore and disseminate the current state-of-the-art, latest developments, products and investment opportunities in QS to the participating audience.

Two tracks each with separate keynotes have been organized in the workshop. The first panel explores the progress in technology for various somatic & health-centric self-quantification. The second panel provides exposure on current and emerging investment activities in QS for personal / mobile healthcare.
