The Long-Term Management of Personal Information
People are amassing large personal information stores. These stores present
rich opportunities for analysis and use in matters of wealth, health, living
and legacy. But these stores also bring with them new challenges for managing
information across long periods of time. Hence personal information
management (PIM) research increasingly must address the long term.
For the seventh PIM workshop in a successful series started in 2005,
we propose taking a look at personal information with exactly this
longitudinal perspective. We expect the workshop to attract a range
of people doing research related to PIM, HCI, personal digital
archiving, aging, and the design of informational spaces for
later life. Attendees will discuss issues related to storing
information for the long-run, how stored information can benefit
a person across their lifetime (and into old age), and the legacy
of a person's personal information.
Past PIM Workshops
This workshop is part of a series of meeting held (approximately) every year and a half
on personal information management, organized in connection with
related conferences including SIGCHI, SIGIR, and ASIS&T.
Each related conference attracts a substantial subset of people
conducting PIM-related research.
