Call for Papers

“Lifelogging for pervasive health” – challenges of capturing, summarising, presenting, and retrieving relevant information from heterogeneous sources to support a new vision of pervasive personal health care. The goal of this workshop is to explore and understand the challenges and state-of-the art techniques in accessing relevant information from lifelogs and using this information to support personalised healthcare.

Topics of Interest

The aim of this one-day workshop is to foster discussion on issues related to the use of lifelogging technologies in the health domain. We invite regular and position papers as well as demonstrations (accompanied by descriptive papers) on relevant topics, including, but not limited to:

  • IR challenges of HDM archives (indexing and search)
  • Sensors to record new pieces of information about our lives e.g. biometric, environmental, or reporting on those who are around us
  • Multi-modal and Context Sensitive Retrieval to improve personal well being
  • Summarisation / re-telling of personal media data, e.g., to assist dementia patients
  • Case studies on the use of lifelogging technologies in the health domain
  • Structuring and organisation of personal media archives for browsing, search and retrieval
  • Techniques to successfully fuse heterogeneous sources of personal information


We invite researchers interested in these topics to submit a workshop paper (2-4 pages) using the IEEE format for papers. Please find detailed instructions on the Pervasive Health 2013 conference website. Papers should be submitted in PDF format via EasyChair submission page.

All accepted submissions will be published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library and they will be included in the conference CD.
