The purpose of this workshop paper is to examine the area of reminiscing and assess its potential as an area of opportunity for research. Reminiscence activity is commonplace as an activity that is widely recognised as beneficial to people with dementia. It also offers alleviation of the burden of care for those who look after people with this disease. In reminiscence activities, people are presented with photographs representing their lives, in some form. Reminiscence systems are simply the use of technology to support reminiscence work. The research approach is to scope the extant work in the area, establish method, and discuss the study design and methodological aspects. The ambition is to formulate a research framework in order to develop and assess reminiscence systems and aspects of visual narrative with users.
