Call For Papers

ABIS 2010 – 18th Intl. Workshop on Personalization and Recommendation on the Web and Beyond

4-6 October 2010, Kassel, Germany

Submission deadline: 27 June

For the last 18 years, the ABIS Workshop has been a highly interactive forum for discussing the state of the art in personalization and user modeling. Latest developments in industry and research are presented in plenary sessions, forums, and tutorials. Researchers, Ph.D students and Web professionals obtain and exchange novel ideas, expertise and feedback on ongoing research before submitting their work to major conferences such as CHI, UMAP, WWW and SIGIR.

Personalization has become a core feature on the Web – and beyond: Google provides personalized search results. Amazon recommends books and other products. Facebook suggests friends and groups. Personalized features and recommendations include items that were appreciated by similar users or the user’s friends and are typically based on a user’s profile data, the user’s current location or items that the user browsed, searched, tagged or bought earlier. Mash-ups and cross-application linking of user profiles promise to provide even more relevant suggestions and services.

Personalization is great. But personalization can go awfully wrong, too. Systems may draw wrong conclusions about your search actions and constantly annoy you with personalized menus that do not work or recommendations for books that you couldn’t care less for. And do you really want your friends and colleagues to know what products you searched for yesterday?

We invite you to submit full or short papers, position statements, Ph.D. research plans and demos, between 4 and 8 pages in length. Submission instructions and templates are available at the workshop website.

Topics include but are not limited to:

- Obtaining user data: logging tools, aggregation of data from social networks and other Web 2.0 services, location tracking
- Modeling the user data: collaborative filtering, cross-application issues, contextualization and disambiguation, use of ontologies and folksonomies
- Personalization and recommendation: applications in social networks, search, online stores, mobile computing, e-learning and mash-ups
- Evaluation and user studies: laboratory studies, empirical studies and analysis of existing corpora of usage data
- Emerging and important issues: future applications, new paradigms in human-computer interactions, privacy awareness

ABIS 2010 is an international workshop, organized by the German SIG on Adaptivity and User Modeling of the Gesellschaft für Informatik. ABIS takes place in connection with LWA2010, together with related workshops on information retrieval, machine learning and information management.
