10th International Conference on User Modeling, UM'05

Edinburgh, Scotland, UK, 24-29 July, 2005


The International User Modeling Conferences represent the central forum for
the discussion and presentation of research and industry results in the
development of personalized systems, as well as basic research about
personalization. In the last 25 years, the field of User Modeling has
produced significant new theories and methods to analyze and model computer
users in short and long-term interactions. Moreover, methods for
personalizing human-computer interaction based on user models have been
successfully developed, applied and evaluated in a number of domains, such
as information filtering, e-commerce, adaptive natural language and adaptive
educational systems. New User Modeling topics are emerging, including
adaptation to user attitudes and affective states, personalized interaction
in mobile, ubiquitous and context-aware computing and in user interactions
with embodied autonomous agents. User Modeling research is being influenced
by different fields, such as Artificial Intelligence, Human-Computer
Interaction, Cognitive Psychology, Linguistics, Education, as well as, by
newly emerging links with Customer Relationship Management and technologies
for the communication on the Web, such as Web Services and the Semantic Web.

Relevant topics of the conference include, but are not limited, to:

   * acquisition, updating and management of
   * user models and student models
   * security and privacy aspects in the
   * management of user data
   * evaluation of user modeling techniques
   * user model representation standards
   * user model information sharing in ubiquitous
   * services and smart environments
   * user modeling servers
   * user modeling in the Semantic Web
   * user modeling and adaptive systems
   * applications of user modeling systems and techniques
   * data mining for personalization and cross-recommendation
   * affective computing
   * adaptation to the handicapped and elderly
   * adaptive hypermedia and Web systems
   * intelligent information retrieval, information
   * filtering and content personalization
   * collaborative filtering and recommender systems
   * adaptive user interfaces
   * dialog planning and response tailoring
   * plan recognition and generation
   * presentation planning
   * recognition and correction of misconceptions
   * intelligent tutoring systems
   * human-computer cooperation, user support
   * adaptive learning environments
   * personalized Web sites and services
   * personalized interaction in Virtual
   * reality and 3D Interfaces
   * personalized interaction in mobile,
   * ubiquitous and context-aware computing
   * embodied animated agents
   * support of collaboration and group modeling
   * engineering adaptive systems
