The Future of Personal Data: envisioning new personalized services 
enabled by Quantified Self technologies (FuturePD) – International 
Workshop @ ACM UMAP ‘16 – Halifax, Canada 13 -17 July, 2016

This one-day workshop will take place at ACM UMAP 2016 and wants to 
bring together professionals, researchers, practitioners and anyone else 
interested in the domain of personal data.
The workshop will combine a brief presentation session and a longer 
design session, where participants will create future scenarios and 
fictional prototypes to reflect on QS personalized technologies.

7 May 2016: Workshop papers submission
1 June 2016: Notification of acceptance
7 June 2016: Camera-ready version due

Please submit to: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=futurepd2016

Quantified Self (QS) aims to use technology to collect personal data on 
different aspects of people’s daily lives. QS tools are more and more 
allowing people to self-track a variety of information related to their 
behaviors (sleep, food), activities (walking, run), psychological states 
(mood, stress), physiological parameters (heart rate, blood sugar 
level), locations, etc. As the current availability on the market of 
wearables and mobile applications for self-tracking is making it 
plausible that QS technologies will become pervasive in the near future, 
we have to start to explore how to employ personal data effectively for 
a broad user base and to enable new complex forms of personalization and 
user modeling.

In this workshop we want to explore a variety of challenges and explore 
different opportunities:

i) how can we model users’ habits and everyday activities through user 
modeling techniques based on “real-world” user’s data (related to e.g. 
user’s cognition, behavior, habits, physiology)?
ii) how can we convey new forms of recommendations and personalized 
feedback, goals, plans based on these data?
iii) which kind of personalized services and applications can be 
improved by this renewed availability of personal data in different 
iv) how can we define new personalized ways to present the data 
collected, in order to make them simple to understand and improve the 
meaningfulness of the interfaces and visualizations provided?
v) how can we face ethical and theoretical issues, e.g. to the user’s 
privacy and the possibility of storing all her experiences?

Relevant workshop topics include but are not limited to:

i) New techniques for collecting data and engaging people in tracking them;
ii) Reflections on how “real-world” personal data could enable new 
complex forms of personalization;
iii) New ways to model users on the basis of real-world data;
iv) Wearables’ data for personalization and user modeling;
v) New services and applications for making personal data actionable, in 
order e.g. to trigger behavior change processes, provide health 
personalized services, enrich the recollection of memories, and support 
processes of learning;
vi) New personalized interaction modalities and visualizations to 
manipulate personal information;
vii) New techniques for interconnect, analyze and model personal data
viii) Theoretical reflections and thought-provoking insights about the 
future of personalization and modeling of human real-life behavior and 
how they could change our lives;
ix) Ethical issues related to the future pervasiveness of QS 
technologies and availability of personal data.

All workshop papers must be 2-8 pages long in the 2015-2016 ACM SIG 
Proceedings template and submitted via easychair: 

The deadline for submission is May 7, 2016.

Papers should be in pdf format and should not be anonymized.

We will accept both position papers and research papers, case studies, 
future research challenges and reflections. Papers will be reviewed by 
the program committee based on their pertinence with the workshop 
topics, quality of the exposition and, mainly, potential to trigger 
discussions and insights for inspiring the design of new solutions 
during the workshop.

All the accepted manuscripts will be included in the UMAP supplemental 
proceedings published with CEUR.

Best papers will be considered to submit an improved version to a 
special issue on an International Journal.
