Abstract: Recently, the number of digital content objects is increasing rapidly with the progress of information technology. It has become important how we manage enormous digital content objects effectively and utilize them efficiently. Up to now, a lot of researches on digital content management have been reported. One of the important objectives of conventional management techniques is to search digital content objects that satisfy an information request of a user. This is based on the assumption that a user has one or more information requests. However, a user may have no information request explicitly when the user uses some kinds of devices for presenting digital content such as a digital photoframe. Such devices are expected to provide a presentation of digital content that rouses user's interest. In this paper, we introduce an approach for composing photo slideshow that attracts user's interest automatically.
