Given the increasing quantities of personal data being gathered by
individuals, the concept of a digital library of rich multimedia and
sensory content for every individual is becoming a reality and fast
becoming a mainstream topic for multimedia research. This is commonly
referred to as lifelogging and there are significant challenges to be
addressed, concerning the gathering, enriching, searching and
visualising of such data.

The LTA2017 workshop at ACM MM 2017 builds on the momentum from
LTA2016 and will bring together interdisciplinary researchers and
practitioners to discuss approaches to lifelog data analytics and the
applications of same, and to debate the opportunities and challenges
for researchers in this new and challenging area. The disciplines
involved include multimedia analytics, wearable and ubiquitous
computing, HCI, information retrieval, cognitive science and
healthcare and wellness.

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

	?	Tools supporting the creation of lifelogs
	? Multimedia data analytics and semantic enrichment for
	lifelog and quantified-self data
	?	User experience design for accessing lifelogs
	?	Privacy and data security challenges of lifelogging
	?	Egocentric vision and first-person camera vision
	?	Experiences of lifelogging and quantified-self activities
	?	Social applications and implications of life-logging
	?	Lifelogging applications in computational social science.
	?	Evaluation of lifelogging technologies
	?	Experiences of lifelogging in the real-world
	?	Ethical issues arising from lifelogging in society
	?	Digital preservation and maintenance of lifelogs
	?	Novel interfaces to lifelogs

We solicit long papers up to 10 pages for oral presentation and short
papers of 4 pages for poster presentation. The submissions will be
peer reviewed by a committee of PC members from the areas of both
multimedia analytics and user applications. The submissions should be
formatted according to the ACM SIG proceedings template
( and the
review-process will be double-blind. Papers should be in PDF and
submitted online through EasyChair

Authors of accepted long papers will be given a speaking slot at the
workshop. Authors of accepted posters will present in a common space
for all workshops, thus reaching a broad audience. The workshop will
take place on during ACM MM 2017.
