After months of preparation and anticipation, fifth Wearables In Practice Symposium was held at the VU University in Amsterdam on December 12th. It was organized by me and Prof. Eco de Geus. Overall, it was a great meeting with interesting talks, discussions, conversations, workshops. Lots of familiar faces. It was my first time officially ‘hosting’ the event, which was a really rewarding experience. The event is covered in a post on and in Dutch on the NeuroLabNL website.
