Call for Papers: International Workshop on TV and Multimedia Personalization (TVM2P)
Full-day workshop, in conjunction with UMAP-2012, Montreal, July 16-17, 2012

Nowadays wired and wireless broadband infrastructures facilitate seamless user access to interactive TV and media content through a variety of technologies, like Web-based TV and IPTV. They followed the paradigm of considering the users to be the distributors, consumers, and sometimes the suppliers of the media content. This convergence of TV, media, and the Web has revolutionized the established content consumption practices. In addition to pure viewing functionalities, it allows users to access additional information about the content, socialize with others, select their desired content to consume and determine its delivery, express their experiences and feelings, and affect others. This raises many challenges related to user modeling and personalization, user interaction, social media, and content delivery. For example, users influence each other through the exchange of ratings and comments about the consumed content, they are connected 24x7 through a variety of devices and networks, they leave identifiable traces that can be used to profile them, and they interact with other information, devices, and users while consuming the content. The workshop will center on these challenges related to user modeling and personalization for interactive TV and media content consumption.

The workshop has two objectives. Firstly, we aim to provide a venue for the presentation of the latest approaches, systems, and applications in the area of TV and media content consumption personalization. Secondly, we aim to facilitate direct interaction, sharing of research findings, and establishment of collaborations. More specifically, the workshop will:
- Provide the venue to report the latest research findings and advancements in the area of interactive TV and media content personalization.
- Foster interaction and exchange of ideas within the TV and media content personalization community.
- Provide an opportunity for information exchange and possible future research collaboration within the community
- Re-visit the research agenda in the area of TV and media content personalization in the light of recent developments in the Social Web, Semantic Web, and Mobile/Ubiquitous Computing research.

The scope of the workshop includes (but is not limited to) the following topics around TV, video, and media content personalization:
- User modeling from user-content interactions
