Refereed Conference Meeting Proceeding
Nowadays, almost everyone holds some form or other of a per- sonal life archive. Automatically maintaining such an archive is an activity that is becoming increasingly common, because without automatic support the users will quickly be overwhelmed by the volume of data and will miss out on the potential benefits that lifelogs provide. In this paper we give an overview of the current status of lifelog research and propose a concept for exploring these archives. We motivate the need for new methodologies for indexing data, organizing content and supporting information access. Finally we will describe challenges to be addressed and give an overview of initial steps that have to be taken, to address the challenges of organising and searching personal life archives.
