> As part of The International Symposium on Methodologies for 
> Intelligent Systems (ISMIS 2012)
> Macau, China, 4-7 December 2012

> *[Scope and Objectives] *
>
> Through numerous research programs, competitions, and economic 
> surveys, automated information retrieval systems and recommender 
> systems have been proven to be ef´Čücient and useful by reducing the 
> cognitive load and time required during the search and access to data. 
> Over the past two decades of research within this field, this 
> improvement of human-computer interactions is mainly relying on 
> increasing systems' accuracy at different levels. Usage mining 
> techniques aim at inferring accurate preferences, habits, and 
> interests and building profiles from users' actions. Collaborative and 
> content-based filtering make use of these profiles to provide users 
> with relevant recommendations. Ontology-based systems formally define 
> concepts within a domain, thus reducing ambiguity. All these machine 
> learning models and algorithms are evaluated relatively to true risk 
> and empirical risk, leading to very accurate contents. Yet, a crucial 
> aspect is missing within these evaluation metrics. It does not take 
> into account human factors playing a role within the decision process. 
> Even the most relevant information is not sufficient to maximize 
> users' acceptance/adoption rate, and satisfaction. The time has come 
> to design holistic intelligent systems that provide the right 
> information at the right time, in the correct manner, in agreement 
> with users' policy and with valuable arguments. New challenges consist 
> in: (1) identifying human factors that play a role within decision 
> making an/or maximize users' acceptance, adoption and satisfaction, 
> (2) integrating these factors in machine learning algorithms, (3) 
> designing interfaces to improve human-computer interactions.

> *[Topics of interest]*
> Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) the following:
> - Human factors and decision making (diversity, personality, emotions, 
> mood, culture, ...)
> - Preserving privacy while modeling users and recommending items
> - Trust and reputation
> - Context and information retrieval
> - Impact of recommenders on decision process
> - Multi-criteria optimization (privacy vs. accuracy, diversity vs. 
> similarity, scalability vs. time constraints, ...)
> - User studies (identifying human factors, evaluation of recommender 
> systems)
> - Social influence (leaders, explicit and implicit social networks, 
> maximizing acceptance, manipulation...)
> - User-centered design and adaptation of interfaces
> - Presentation and explanations in recommender systems
> - Visual representation of data
>
> *[Paper Submissions]*
> Authors are invited to submit original unpublished manuscripts that 
> demonstrate current research on one or several of the special session 
> topics of interest. Papers should be prepared using the Springer 
> LNCS/LNAI style with a maximum of 10 pages. All submitted papers will 
> be reviewed by the following program committee of this session.
