Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Parallel Session on “Quantified Self and Personal Informatics” was held in 2014 and 2015, at the International Conference on Human–Computer Interaction. The third edition of the session will be held at the 19th International Conference on Human–Computer Interaction, 9–14 July, 2017, in Vancouver, Canada. For more information about the session please use this link: https://qsandpi.wordpress.com/ and http://2017.hci.international/index.php.

Selected papers that participated to these parallel sessions are invited to submit their extended version to this Special Issue of Computers after the conference, and, at the latest, by 1 November, 2017. Submitted papers should be extended to the size of regular research or review articles, with a 50% extension of new results. All submitted papers will undergo our standard peer-review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in open access format in Computers and will be collected together in this Special Issue.

Please prepare and format your paper according to the Instructions for Authors. Use the LaTeX or Microsoft Word template file of the journal (both are available from the Instructions for Authors page). Manuscripts should be submitted online via our susy.mdpi.com editorial system.
