Organizers and Program co-chairs

Amon Rapp. Research fellow at Computer Science Department of the University of Torino, where he directs the Smart Personal Technology Lab. His research areas are Quantified Self and behavior change technologies, investigated from an HCI perspective.

Federica Cena. Assistant Professor at the Department of Computer Science of the University of Torino. She is currently the head of Smart Society Lab at the Center for Innovation for the Territory. She is working on user modeling and personalization, with a special focus on the implications of IoT 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.

Daniel A. Epstein. PhD Student in Computer Science & Engineering at the University of Washington and a member of the DUB group. He studies the design of personal informatics and self-tracking tools to integrate into people’s everyday lives through surveying people’s ongoing practices and implementing new technology.

Rúben Gouveia. PhD student at Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute. He has focused his research on understanding how individuals engage with personal informatics tools in their daily lives. He attempts to leverage on such insights towards predicting and personalizing moments of engagement.
