First Call for Papers AH2008

5th International Conference on
Adaptive Hypermedia and
Adaptive Web-Based Systems

July 28 - August 1, 2008

Submission deadline: 14 Jan 2008 (full papers)


The 2008 International Conference on Adaptive Hypermedia and Adaptive 
Web-Based Systems (AH2008) will take place in Hannover, Germany, 
hosted by the L3S Research Center, following the successful previous 
conferences in Dublin, Ireland (2006), Eindhoven, the Netherlands 
(2004), Malaga, Spain (2002), Trento (2000).

The 2008 conference is momentous, as it represents the marriage of 
the Adaptive Hypermedia and User Modeling communities, both of which 
are major sponsors.

We invite submissions in the fields of Adaptive Hypermedia systems 
and techniques, Web personalization, adaptive information filtering 
and retrieval, intelligent tutoring systems, semantic Web, 
applications of adaptive hypermedia and empirical studies of AH and 
Web systems.
