The Second Annual SenseCam Symposium will bring together an inter-disciplinary mix of researchers, clinicians and practitioners all with an interest in visual lifelogging and its applications. The Symposium will include keynote talks, regular paper and poster presentations, and software and hardware demonstrations of visual lifelogging. The Symposium will be of interest to Computer Scientists, Neuropsychologists, Clinical Psychologists, Health Professionals, Rehabilitation specialists, Engineers, Cognitive Psychologists, Memory Scientists, Ethicists, Epidemiologists, Ethnographers, Lawyers, Archivists and Clinicians.
SenseCam 2010 will be hosted in Dublin, Ireland and supported by CLARITY: Centre for Sensor Web Technologies, Microsoft Research, and Vicon. The symposium will showcase the diverse range of work being carried out using SenseCam (Vicon Revue). If you are interested in presenting your work at the Symposium, either as a presentation, poster or system demonstration, we invite you to submit a 500 word abstract on or before the 1st of August 2010. Find out more about abstract submissions here.
The SenseCam 2010 Programme will follow a similar format to the inaugural symposium in 2009. The two day event will include two invited keynote talks, a number of oral presentations showcasing the exciting work being carried out with SenseCam, and a series of posters and demonstrations. You can read more about the program here.
We are also delighted to announce that Kieron O'Hara and Chris Moulin will deliver the keynote addresses.
SenseCam 2010 will be held in Dublin, Ireland at the Guinness Storehouse. Located in the heart of the working St. James's Gate Brewery in Dublin, Guinness Storehouse is one of the most exciting and unusual Dublin conference venues. The StoreHouse is also Ireland's No. 1 international visitor attraction.
SenseCam, now the Vicon Revue, is a wearable digital camera that is designed to take photographs passively, without user intervention, while it is being worn. Unlike a regular digital camera or a cameraphone, SenseCam does not have a viewfinder or a display that can be used to frame photos. Instead, it is fitted with a wide-angle (fish-eye) lens that maximizes its field-of-view. This ensures that nearly everything in the wearer’s view is captured by the camera, which is important because a regular wearable camera would likely produce many uninteresting images.
SenseCam also contains a number of different electronic sensors. These include light-intensity and light-color sensors, a passive infrared (body heat) detector, a temperature sensor, and a multiple-axis accelerometer. These sensors are monitored by the camera’s microprocessor, and certain changes in sensor readings can be used to automatically trigger a photograph to be taken.
Many applications have been suggested for SenseCam (Vicon Revue) technology. These include:
