    ComicDiary: Representing Individual Experiences in Comics Style

Session/Category Title:   Digital Representation



    This sketch describes ComicDiary, a system that automatically creates a personal diary in a comics style. ComicDiary is built as a sub-system of our ongoing project (C-MAP) to develop a personal guidance system for touring museums, trade shows, academic con- ferences, cities, etc. The aim of the C-MAP system is to provide users with personalized guidance in temporal and spatial situations, as well as for individual interests. We intend that ComicDiary will be used as a casual tool for augmenting each individual user’s memory and encouraging users to exchange personal memories.
