Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNCS, volume 4868)


Video summaries present the content of a video stream concisely while trying to preserve its original, essential message. By means of a feasibility study, this article investigates whether users’ physiological responses to video content can adequately serve as a basis for the creation of affective video summaries that are personalized for an individual user.
