The aim of this theme issue of Personal and Ubiquitous Computing on 'Measuring Behavior' is to summarize emerging trends and common problems across different branches of social and behavioral sciences that involve measurements of human behavior. The emphasis in this theme issue is on methods and technologies for the measurement of behavior at the micro and macro level.
This Special Issue is inspired by the Measuring behavior conference www.measuringbehavior.org which provides a broad and interdisciplinary forum for novel methods to define, measure, and analyze human and animal behavior. We solicit papers that analyze individual behavior along with the patterns, behavior of groups and processes explaining for specific behaviors. We especially focus on integrative approaches of measuring different behavioral parameters with realistic interactive setting.
In order to obtain the high scientific standards and academic independance from the sponsors, Measuring Behavior is supported by an advisory board of leading researchers:

Measuring Behavior 2016 in Dublin, Ireland will be the ideal opportunity to show your products and behavioral services to a group of dedicated researchers and scientists.
We expect 200+ highly qualified researchers in the broadest range of behavioral disciplines, including:
Measuring Behavior is the premier interdisciplinary event for scientists and practitioners concerned with the study of human or animal behavior. This unique conference focuses on methods, techniques and tools in behavioral research in the widest sense.
While most conferences focus on a specific scientific area, this conference tries to create bridges between disciplines by bringing together people who may otherwise be unlikely to meet each other.
Preparations for the next Measuring Behavior conference will start soon. A new location, a new city, and new methods and techniques to be presented.
One of our main questions is when to organize the next Measuring Behavior conference. Currently the Measuring Behavior conferences are organized every 2 years. The last meeting was organized in 2012.

The 8th International Conference on Methods and Techniques in Behavioral research, Measuring Behavior 2012, will take place on 28-31 August 2012 in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The latest edition in Eindhoven (2010) was attended by almost 400 delegates from 34 countries.
The conference chair of a Measuring Behavior conference is a key position for the conference, acting as a figurehead and playing an important role in making the conference a success. As conference chair you should:
