Digitally Enhanced Reality: from Wearable Cognitive Assistance to
Augmented Memory

Special Issue of IEEE Pervasive Computing

Submission deadline: 1 October 2014

Publication date: July-Sept 2015

Recent developments in wearable capture and access technology bring
about a fundamental shift in the digital augmentation of reality: in
the near future, it will be feasible to continuously record a plethora
of personal experiences - from sight and hearing to vital signals -
and provide both in-situ and pre-emptive access to related
information, past experiences, and social exchange. This has the power
to significantly change the way we interact and remember.

The aim of this special issue is to explore technologies related to
all aspects of digitally capturing and augmenting reality in order to
enhance human cognition. Papers do not need to focus only on
image-based systems - we are interested in the application of a wide
range of sensor data (e.g. health and fitness information, location
feeds or audio recordings) that augments human cognition. Relevant
topics for this special issue include, but are not limited to, the

· Tools, platforms, and deployments for wearable cognitive
assistance systems

· Technologies, theories, and user studies for augmenting
human memory through capture and access

· Strategies for the targeted collection of relevant
experience streams across a range of sensor modes

· Presentation issues in integrating, correlating, and
visualizing captured sensor data and other information sources for
both in-situ targeted retrieval and long-term memory augmentation.

· Social implications of digitally enhancing reality

· User studies involving novel capture and access technology

· Psychological implications of providing in-situ access to
past memories and active experience-sharing with others

· New business processes and models involving digitally enhanced reality

· Privacy and security issues in digitally enhanced reality systems

The guest editors invite original and high-quality research
submissions addressing all aspects of this field, as long as the
connection to the focus topic is clear and emphasized. Experience
reports, surveys, critical evaluations of the state of the art and
insightful analysis of established and up-coming technologies are also
