Workshop on Personalization in Mobile and Pervasive Computing

The workshop will be collocated with the UMAP’09, http://, June 22-26, 2009,Trento, Italy.


The objective of the workshop is to bring active researchers and  
practitioners together and to facilitate discussions on current  
research results and issues and emerging research topics in supporting  
personalization in mobile and pervasive computing. The workshop aims  
to answer the following focused questions by stimulating and involving  
as many active researchers in this field as possible:
-          What are the unique issues, difficulties, and potential  
solutions for personalization in mobile and pervasive computing?
-          What are the roles of domain knowledge and ontology for the  
personalization and efficient and effective ways of employing them?
-          Assuming our surroundings will be filled with smart  
objects, how does a system address the added complexity of  
personalization and what are the possible solutions?

Topics of Interest

Personalization for mobile and pervasive computing faces many  
challenges in areas of user modeling, adaptation and prediction. The  
topics of interest include but not limited to the following topics:
-          Mobile and pervasive intelligent personal assistants
-          User preference mining in a mobile and pervasive context
-          User intention prediction
-          Situation-awareness
-          Domain knowledge and ontology for mobile user modeling and  
-          Personalized mobile learning
-          Adaptivity through indoor/outdoor location awareness
-          Data acquisition and process
-          Personalized division of computation between the phone and  
-          Personalized power preservation
-          Mobile and pervasive group personalization
-          User studies and experiences
-          Social issues such as privacy
