                             CALL FOR PAPERS 
   8th Workshop on Intelligent Techniques for Web Personalization
                         & Recommender Systems
                      In conjunction with UMAP 2010
                June 20, 2010 - Big Island of Hawaii, USA
                    Submission Deadline:  March 29, 2010
Web Personalization and recommendation systems have been steadily gaining
ground as essential components of today’s Web based applications, including
in e-commerce and customer relationship management, in the delivery of
business services, in providing support for Web search and navigation, and
in reducing cognitive overload in information rich interactive social Web
applications. The proliferation of Web 2.0 applications has allowed users to
go beyond simple consumers of information and instead actively participate
in shaping collaborative environments in which users, resources, and
user-provided content are all networked together. This, in turn has
increased the need for more intelligent and personalized services that help
users interact with and navigate these complex information spaces. These
include a new generation of recommender systems that integrate multiple
online channels, are more scalable, are more adaptive, can better handle
user interactivity, and are more adept at user preference elicitation. To
achieve this, such applications must rely on intelligent techniques from AI,
machine learning, Web mining, statistics, and user modelling in order to
leverage all available data, including the usage and click-stream data
(reflecting user behaviour), the content and meta-data associated with
resources, semantic domain knowledge, user profile information, and
underlying network structures. Efficient and intelligent techniques are
needed to mine this data for actionable knowledge, and to effectively use
the discovered knowledge to enhance the users' experience.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners
From Web Mining, Web Personalization, Recommender Systems, and User Modeling
communities in order to foster an exchange of information and ideas and to
facilitate a discussion of current and emerging topics related to the
development of intelligent Web personalization and Recommender Systems.
We invite original contributions in a variety of areas related to Web
personalization and Recommender Systems, including Data Modeling and
Integration; User Modeling and Preference Elicitation; Systems and
Architectures; Enabling Technologies; and Evaluation Methodologies, Metrics,
and Case Studies. 

For a detailed list of topics, please see the workshop Web site:

The format for submissions is the same as that of UMAP 2010. Please check
the UMAP 2010 website for the style files. (

Papers should be no longer than 12 pages inclusive of all references and
figures. All papers must be submitted in PDF by email
[log in to unmask] All papers must be original and must not
have not been published or submitted elsewhere. At least one author for each
