[visionlist] Special Session on Information Retrieval and Summarization from Lifelog Data (IRSLD) at ICPRAM 2017 – Call for paper

[Please distribute, Sorry for multiple copies]

We cordially invite you to submit a paper to the special session on “Information Retrieval and Summarization from Lifelog Data” at the 6th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods (ICPRAM 2017 – http://www.icpram.org/), to be held in Porto, Portugal.

In the recent years, lifelogging and the management of personal digital data is rapidly becoming a mainstream research topic. With the rich data captured over a long period of time, heterogeneous digital lifelogs will require both advanced analytics tools that can provide insights into the activities of the individual, and  systems capable of managing large volumes of multimodal data. Many challenges await the scientific community from both ethical and technological viewpoints. Recently, several international competitions promoted research in the area by making publicly available datasets on which to test new approaches and techniques, at both NTCIR and ImageCLEF (http://ift.tt/2gjZeKG).

The aim of this special session is to draw together researchers involved in this new and challenging area. We seek contributions  that are either focused on learning and data analysis (e.g., active and adaptive learning, hypothesis generation, data managed techniques, combining classifier techniques, etc.) or focused on solving real world challenges (e.g., human behavior analysis, content-based multimedia retrieval, and many others).

The main topics of interest include (although not limited to):

– Multimedia data analytics for lifelog data

– Search and retrieval from lifelogs

– User experiences of lifelog gathering and application

– Real-world applications of lifelogging

– Captology and behaviour change from personal data

– Egocentric vision and first-person camera vision analytics
