The volume of personal digital data captured from today's content creation devices, such as digital cameras, digital video recorders and sensecams pose many challenges for organising and retrieving content for users. By utilising content and contextual analysis along with an understanding of the usage scenarios involved, it is possible to develop effective information retrieval technologies for these personal archives.
