Call for Papers: 1st International Workshop on Adaptation, Personalization and REcommendation in the Social-semantic Web (APRESW 2010)
30 or 31 May 2010 | Heraklion, Greece

In conjunction with the
7th Extended Semantic Web Conference (ESWC 2010)

Important dates

* Paper submission: 7 March 2010
* Notification of paper acceptance/rejection: 5 April 2010
* Camera-ready copies of accepted papers: 18 April, 2010
* APRESW 2010 Workshop: 30 or 31 May 2010


During the last years, researchers and practitioners of the Semantic Web have progressively consolidated a number of very important achievements. Formal languages have been standardized to define ontology-based knowledge representations, logic formalisms and query models. Ontology engineering methodologies and tools have been proposed to ease the designing and populating of ontological knowledge bases. Reasoning engines have been implemented to exploit inference capabilities of ontologies, and semantic-based frameworks have been built to enrich the functionalities of Web services. These achievements are the pillars to deal with the complex challenge of bringing semantics to the Web.

The above gives a new ground to extend the focus of the Semantic Web by engaging it in other communities, where semantics can play an important role. The available semantic knowledge bases can be used to enrich and link additional repositories, ontology engineering techniques can be utilized to properly design and build ontologies in further real-world domains, and inference and query mechanisms can enhance classic information management and retrieval approaches.

Among these communities, this workshop aims to attract the attention of students and professionals both from academia and industry who take benefit of semantic-based techniques and technologies in within-application Adaptation, Personalization and Recommendation approaches. In parallel to the progress made in the Semantic Web research topics, there have been appearing works in the above areas that use ontologies to model the user’s preferences, tastes and interests, and exploit these personal features together with meta-information about multimedia contents in order to provide the user with adaptation and personalization capabilities for different purposes such as information retrieval and item recommendation.

Moreover, with the advent of the Web 2.0 (also called the Social Web), the potential study and development of those approaches have increased exponentially. Social networks allow people to provide explicit relationships with others, and find out implicit user similarities based on their profiles. Social tagging services offer the opportunity to easily create and exploit personal knowledge representations. Wiki-style sites represent an environment where the community contributes and shares information, and blogs are media in which users express subjective opinions.

In all of these scenarios, adaptation, personalization and recommendation are core functionalities. However, the understanding and exploitation of the semantics underlying user and item profiles are still open issues.

Topics of interest

The workshop will focus on establishing user/usage models for adaptation, personalization and recommendation approaches for the Social-semantic Web.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the exploitation of the Web of Data, the identification of semantics underlying social annotations of multimedia contents, and the application of semantic-based techniques and technologies in research fields related to:

* Personalized access to multimedia content
* Content-based recommendation and collaborative filtering
* Adaptive exploration of multimedia content
* Adaptive user interfaces for multimedia content browsing and searching
* Community extraction and exploitation
* Social networks analysis for collaborative recommendation
* User profile construction based on social tagging information
* Context-aware multimedia content access and delivery
* Mobile and ubiquitous multimedia content access and delivery

Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic but I needed to ask.
Does operating a well-established website like yours
require a large amount of work? I am brand new to operating a blog
but I do write in my journal everyday. I'd like to start a blog so I can share my experience and feelings online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new aspiring bloggers. Appreciate it!

First off I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my ideas out there. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints? Appreciate it!

Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a
few of the images aren't loading properly. I'm not sure why but
I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
