***** LSC2019 - CALL FOR PAPERS *****

The second Lifelog Search Challenge (LSC 2019) will take place during ICMR 2019 in Ottawa, Canada in June 2019. LSC 2019 follows a successful first edition of the workshop in 2018 and will be a highly interactive and entertaining workshop modelled on the successful Video Browser Showdown annual competition at the MMM conference. At the LSC workshop series, research teams can evaluate and demonstrate multimodal interactive lifelog search engines on a shared dataset in a live setting in front of an audience of ICMR attendees. Each participating team writes a paper describing their system for the ACM proceedings of the LSC 2019, published within the workshops proceedings of ACM ICMR 2019.

Anyone with an exploratory multimedia search tool that allows for retrieval, interactive browsing, exploration, or navigation in a multimedia collection is encouraged to participate and there is no restriction in terms of allowed features. At the competition, the organisers will provide a network and an API to evaluate found items for correctness.

The dataset consists of one month of anonymised multimodal lifelog data (continuous capture images, locations, biometrics, information consumption/creation activities) which will require a download of about ten GBs. An online API will be provided in advance to support development and to validate the search interfaces. Additionally, a baseline textual search engine will also be provided via API to any participant who wishes to use it. The topics will be divided into three categories; five development topics, five validation topics and fifteen LSC competition topics.

In order to participate, a team must prepare a paper that describes their interactive search engine and how it operates by 5th April.  All papers must be formatted according to the ACM proceedings style and should not exceed 6 pages in length and be written in the English Language. LSC2019 will use a single-blind review process for paper and system selection. Submissions should be made through the EasyChair ICMR2019 conference submission site ( Authors of accepted submissions with associated lifelog retrieval systems will be included in the workshop proceedings of ACM ICMR 2019, invited to participate in the workshop and afterwards, to contribute to a journal special issue on LSC 2019.
