THEME: Memory and Sharing of Experiences

Ubiquitous computing environment will become a strong infrastructure
to record experiences of people in the real world because it will
network a lot of wide spread sensors that can capture the activities
of people continuously in various aspects.  The Journal of Personal
and Ubiquitous Computing calls for articles on the theme of "Memory
and sharing of experiences" that is an important issue of ubiquitous
computing paradigm including networked sensors, smart appliances and
interaction model.

The experiences here include activities such as writing, drawing,
speaking, meeting, sports, traveling etc., in personal or group
context, and interactions with other people and/or artificial
artifacts.  Recorded experiences by means of digital video, tactile
sensors, location tracking device, etc. can be used as a source for
various tasks in daily life, business, education and security.  They
include, for example, multi-media memory aids, reference for context
recognition, creation of a model of person's activities and
story-telling of life.  The useful and computational log can be
obtained by ubiquitous sensor networks and effective tagging systems.

Topics of interest include (but are not restricted to):
  - Experience Capture
    - Extensive logs and ubiquitous sensor networks
    - Effective tagging system
    - Smart appliances
    - Wearable devices and system
  - Experience Database
    - Multimedia annotation and search
    - Summarization and presentation of experience
    - Interaction corpora
  - Experience Log Applications
    - Sharing experience and tips
    - Memory aid / Safety net
    - Life memory and story-telling
    - Knowledge sharing/creation through interaction
  - Miscellaneous issues
    - Analysis of human behavior
    - Social model of experience sharing and privacy issues


Submissions should be e-mailed as a PDF file directly to the three
editors of the special issue.  Additional information regarding
journal submissions is available at:

The deadline for receiving submissions is June 30, 2004.  All
contributions will be peer reviewed based on the journal's standard.
We encourage potential authors to contact the editors well before the
final deadline.  Draft submissions are welcome if authors seek early
feedback.  For further information or to discuss a possible
contribution, please contact the special issue editors, Kenji Mase,
Yasuyuki Sumi, and Sidney Fels.


October 15, 2004: submissions due
December 15, 2004: authors notified (accept, reject, revise&resubmit)
January 31, 2004: revised versions of paper due
Early March, 2005: authors notified (for resubmitted papers)

RELATED INFORMATION (Recommended readings)

Prior to this special issue, a workshop on the same theme was held in
conjunction with Second International Conference on Pervasive
Computing (PERVASIVE 2004), in Vienna.
