Organizers and Program co-chairs

Amon Rapp. Researcher at Computer Science Department of the University of Torino in the AI and HCI group and director of the Smart Personal Technology Lab at ICxT, University of Torino. His research areas are HCI, game design, Quantified Self systems and wearable technologies.

Federica Cena. Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Turin (Italy). She is a member of the AI and HCI group. She is working on user modeling, personalization and ubiquitous computing. In the last years, she is mainly devoted in studying the implications of Web of Things for user modeling.

Judy Kay. Professor of Computer Science at the University of Sydney, Australia. She heads the Human Centred Technology priority research cluster. Her primary research focus is on surface computing and infrastructures for managing personal data with the user in control. Key applications are in life-long and life-wide learning, with data supporting metacognitive processes, including reflection and goal setting.

Bob Kummerfeld. Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Sydney, Australia. His research is mainly on systems for the management of User Model data as well as novel interfaces for gathering and managing personal data.

Frank Hopfgartner. Lecturer in Information Studies at University of Glasgow. His research to date can be placed in the intersection of information retrieval, recommender systems, and data analytics. He co-organized various workshops on heterogeneous sensor data, Quantified Self and Lifelogging (e.g., at ICME, UMAP, Hypertext, BIBM) and is chair of Lifelog, a pilot task for the evaluation of lifelogging and retrieval techniques at NTCIR-12.

Till Plumbaum. Director of the Competence Center Information Retrieval and Machine Learning at DAI-Labor, TU Berlin. He has chaired a number of workshops on user behavior and lifelong user modeling. His main research interest is on understanding and modeling human behavior with a current focus on lifelogging and personal informatics.

Jakob Eg Larsen. Associate Professor in Cognitive Systems at the Technical University of Denmark, Dept. of Applied Mathematics and Computer Science, where he heads the Mobile Informatics and Personal Data Lab. He has chaired several workshops on personal informatics and quantified self. His research interests include HCI, personal data interaction, personal informatics and quantified self.
