HCII 2011: Electronic Memories and Life Logging

Recent advances in sensor networks, mobile computing and storage technologies enable us to manage our life events digitally. The process of logging individuals' experiences is not limited to personal events, and community experiences can be recorded digitally also. In the near future Life logging and electronic memories are going to have significant impacts on our life similar to revolutions of mobile phones and Internet.
The aim of this session is to bring together scientists and entrepreneurs to discuss and present their research and systems on life logging and electronic memories. Authors are invited to submit full papers on all related areas. Papers exploring new directions or areas will receive a thorough and encouraging review.

Areas of interest include, but not limited to:

  • Tools and system for collecting information in long-term.
  • Qualitative and quantitative analyzing approaches.
  • Information mining, knowledge discovery and semantic analysis.
  • Outcomes of personal or community's digital memories, such as ethical and social implications.
  • Designing issues and reflection approaches (visualization, notification, etc)
  • Risks, Trust, Privacy and Security.
  • Requirements and tools for enhancing and optimizing life-logs and e-memories (annotation, long term preservation, storage, etc.).
  • Psycho-Physiological studies.

The proposed conference on the above themes will be held on July 9-14, 2011, Orlando, Florida. The HCI International 2011 Conference Proceedings, comprising the papers to be presented at the Conference, will be published by Springer in a multivolume set in the Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) and Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence (LNAI) series. They will be available online through the LNCS Digital Library, readily accessible by all subscribing libraries around the world.

Paper Submission
All submissions will be handled through the Conference Management System ( http://www.hcii2011.org ).
All submitted abstracts will be peer-reviewed by three independent referees from the International Program Boards. An abstract of 800 words should be submitted through the CMS, and should include a statement of the objective and significance of the proposed presentation, a description of methods and a discussion of results. Papers in the theoretical category should deal with models, concepts, and structures; papers in the generic category should present research results of broad applicability; and papers in the applied category should show how the demands of particular application areas shape the way generic research is translated into practical innovation. Authors, whose abstract is accepted, will be required to submit a full paper (maximum 10 pages long).

Important Dates:

  • Full Paper Submission: Nov 30, 2010
  • Author Notification: Dec 20, 2010
  • Camera Ready: Feb 4, 2011
