Recent years have witnessed an intensive growth of systems of measurement and an increasing integration of data processes into various spheres of everyday life, so much so that it can be argued that we are now living in a ‘metric culture’. This two-day international conference brings together relevant scholars who are engaged in the study of practices of self-tracking and related technologies to critically reflect on the way metric culture is unfolding within and affecting the various spheres of our everyday life.
