eCHRONICLE 2006 WORKSHOP SCOPE
Continuing strides in processing, storage, sensing, and networking technologies are enabling individuals and organizations to capture their activities and experiences as greater volumes of rich media. This is leading to creation of ever-richer records of happenings in electronic form, or electronic chronicles. Historical accounts, conference proceedings, web logs, video recordings, transaction logs, patient health records, records of user activity on computers, surveillance data, and "lifelogs" obtained from wearable sensors are but a few examples of electronic chronicles. Technological and social trends point to the prevalence and exploitation of such chronicles in a wide range of applications spanning enhancement of personal life, business productivity, health care, entertainment, and government operations.
The field of electronic chronicles deals with the capture, representation, organization, analysis, and presentation of temporal streams of data captured by individuals, groups, or organizations. The goal of this workshop is to foster a community of researchers advancing the various technical and socio-technical aspects of eChronicles. We invite contributions from researchers addressing diverse aspects of this emerging area. Position papers are also encouraged. The workshop will include regular and short papers, demonstrations, an invited talk, and a panel.

Authors should submit abstracts by email to the workshop chair, Gopal Pingali.
Detailed formatting instructions for papers from IEEE can be found here. (Also see IEEE style files). Submissions are limited to 10 pages in the specified format for full papers. Authors may also submit short papers of no more than 4 pages describing work-in-progress or demonstrations. We strongly encourage all authors to bring demo systems to the workshop.
Only electronic submissions will be accepted. A hardcopy of the proceedings will be published and the papers will be included in the digital library of IEEE CS.
We also plan to include selected papers from this workshop in a special issue of a reputed journal.
