Test collections have a long history of supporting repeatable and comparable evaluation in Information Retrieval (IR). However, thus far, no shared test collection exists for IR systems that are designed to index and retrieve multimodal lifelog data. In this paper we introduce the first test col- lection for personal lifelog data. The requirements for such a test collection are motivated, the process of creating the test collection is described, along with an overview of the test collection and finally suggestions are given for possible applications of the test collection, which has been employed for the NTCIR12-Lifelog task.
