[Apologies for multiple postings] ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Semantic Web Personalization Workshop @ 3rd European Semantic Web Conference http://www.kbs.uni-hannover.de/%7Ehenze/swp06/ June 11 or 12, 2006 (tbc) Budva (Montenegro) +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ The ultimate goal of the Semantic Web is to enable applications which offer enhanced and efficient possibilities for end users to benefit from electronically stored information. The vision of a Semantic Web, "in which information is given a well-defined meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in cooperation" already stresses the importance of efficient end user support for accessing and working with Web information. However, current development in the Semantic Web focuses on formalisms, languages, reasoning and the development of according technological frameworks, so to speak the first part of the vision. These technologies shall constitute an environment capable of enabling enhanced, efficient and user-centered applications, thus enabling the second part of the vision, and the goal of the Semantic Web. This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners in the fields of Semantic Web technologies and personalization in order to discuss their theoretical and practical knowledge, issues, and experiences for common benefit. It is organized along two thematical foci and corresponding sessions: Semantic Web-enabling Technologies for Personalization, and Semantic-based Content Personalization in Ubiquitous Environments. For the first session on Semantic Web-enabling Technologies for Personalization, we expect submissions to discuss especially some of the following topics: * Reasoning and rules for user modeling and personalization in the Semantic Web * Information extraction for capturing semantics * Acquisition and application of user profiles * Ontology aligning and evolution for user modeling * User-aware querying in the Semantic Web * Trust, privacy and transparency in the personalization process * Semantic Web Services and Service-oriented architectures for personalization For the second session on Semantic-based Content Personalization in Ubiquitous Environments, we expect submissions to discuss especially some of the following topics: * Semantically enriched user models for ubiquitous and mobile environments * Content-based filtering exploiting content semantics * Social filtering (collaborative filtering) exploiting content semantics * Hybrid filtering technologies using content semantics * Filtering technologies for heterogeneous content based on semantics * How to use semantics for preference description Furthermore, for both sessions, submissions about best practices and applications are sought, discussing e.g.: * Needs: scenarios where personalization brings benefits * Experiences: lessons learnt from previous research * Solutions: for personalized access to content in a Semantic Web +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Important Dates: Submission deadline: March 20, 2006 Notification to authors: April 19, 2006 Camera-ready version: April 30, 2006 +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Submission Guidelines: Two submission categories are accepted for the workshop: * Full papers: 10 pages * Short papers: 5 pages Submission process: Prepare your submission according to the Springer LNCS Style, see: http://www.springer.de/comp/lncs/authors.html and submit the paper in PDF format. For the session on Semantic Web-enabling Technologies for Personalization: Submit your paper via email to Nicola Henze (henze_(on)_kbs.uni-hannover.de), with your submission (in PDF format) attached. For the session on Semantic-based Content Personalization in Ubiquitous Environments you can use the submission system at http://www.comtec.e-technik.uni-kassel.de/conftool_scpue2006/ +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Organization and Commitees: General Organizers Makram Bouzid - Motorola, France Nicola Henze - University of Hannover, Germany Session Organizers Semantic Web-enabling Technologies for Personalization Lora Aroyo - Technical University of Eindhoven, Netherlands Vania Dimitrova - University of Leeds, UK Nicola Henze - University of Hannover, Germany Massimo Marchiori - University of Venice, Italy Semantic-based Content Personalization in Ubiquitous Environments Makram Bouzid - Motorola, France Bruno Defude - Institut National des Télécommunications, France Olaf Droegehorn - University of Kassel, Germany Program Committee First session: Semantic Web-enabling Technologies for Personalization Pragya Agarwal UCL, UK Lora Aroyo Technical University of Eindhoven, Netherlands Matteo Baldoni University of Torino, Italy Cristina Baroglio University of Torino, Italy Claudia Buzzi Institute of Informatics and Telematics, IIT Vania Dimitrova University of Leeds, UK Anthony Jameson International University in Germany Dominik Heckman DFGKI, Germany Nicola Henze University of Hannover, Germany Pascal Hitzler University of Karlsruhe, Germany Judy Kay University of Sidney, Australia Alexander Kroener DFKI, Germany Massimo Marchiori University of Venice, Italy Bamshad Mobasher DePaul University, USA Viviana Patti University of Torino, Italy Fabrizio Silvestri Information Science and Technology Institute, ISTI , Julita Vassileva University of Saskatchewan, Canada Second session: Semantic-based Content Personalization in Ubiquitous Environments Paola Hobson - Motorola, UK Geert-Jan Houben - Vrije Universiteit Brussel, Belgium Lora Aroyo - Technical University of Eindhoven, Netherlands Alfons Salden - Telematica Instituut, Netherlands Klaus Moessner - University of Surrey, UK Yiannis Kompatsiaris - CERTH/ITI, Greece Samir Tata - Institut National des Télécommunications, France Myriam Ribière - Motorola, France Serge Garlatti - ENST Bretagne, France Christian Becker - University of Stuttgart, Germany Hamid R.
