Call For Papers


2nd Workshop on

Semantic Personalized Information Management: Retrieval and
Recommendation (SPIM 2011)

in conjunction with ISWC2011, October 23-27, 2011, Bonn, Germany

Deadline for paper submission: August 15, 2011


Search engines implementing the canonical search paradigm are adequate
for most ad-hoc keyword-based search tasks,
but they reach limits when user needs have to be satisfied in a
personalized way. With the advent of the Semantic Web,
new opportunities emerge for semantic information retrieval systems to
better match user needs. Next generation search
engines should implement a novel search paradigm, where the user
perspective is completely reversed: from finding to being found.
Recommender Systems may help to support this new perspective, because
they have the effect of pushing relevant objects to potentially
interested users. An emerging approach is to use Semantic Web
technologies to model information about users, their needs and preferences,
their context and relations, and to incorporate data from other
resources like Linked Open Data.
The aim of the workshop is to investigate whether and how this large
amount of wide-coverage and linked semantic knowledge can
significantly improve the search/recommendation process in those tasks
that cannot be solved merely through a straightforward matching
of queries and documents.

The list below provides the topics of interest of this workshop.

Systems that create, exploit, and evaluate semantic technologies for improving PIM
Exploiting Linked Open Data for PIM
Semantic search: information retrieval, extraction and filtering
Semantic exploratory browsing
Semantic recommender systems
Personalized search: ranking integration, privacy issues, novelty and serendipity
Ontology-based user modeling and user model aggregation
Personalized interaction in mobile, ubiquitous and context-aware computing
Use of semantic technologies in UI/HCI
Hybridizing Semantic Web and Machine Learning techniques for PIM
New personalization algorithms for large semantic data sets
Applications for SPIM
