ABIS 2007 - 15th Workshop on
Adaptivity and User Modeling in Interactive Systems

September 24-26, 2007, Halle/Saale, Germany
Submission Deadline: July 7, 2007


ABIS is the special interest group on Adaptivity and User Modeling in 
Interactive Systems of the German Computer Society.


Nowadays adaptation is seen as the most promising approach to increase the 
usability of complex modern software. In the recent years, various adaptation 
techniques have been introduced and seem to work well for specific 
application contexts.

To enable re-use and comparison of the different techniques, there is a strong 
need, not only for domain independent adaptation techniques, but also for 
formal description of the involved models.

Adaptive systems cannot be considered without the user's context, as they 
interact with and work for the user. To enhance the quality of adaptation, 
every adaptive system requires a very precise knowledge of the user. This 
knowledge includes the behavior of the user, e.g. by observing the 
interactions of the user with the system, to discover the context and the 
interest of the user.

Therefore, all adaptive systems can benefit from a comprehensive model that 
describes the behavior of a user, and other relevant information about her.

The ABIS Workshop has been established as a highly interactive forum for 
discussing the state of the art in personalization and user modeling. Latest 
developments in industry and research are presented in plenary sessions, 
forums, and tutorials to discuss trends and experiences. We strive to have a 
diverse group, varying from young researchers working on Master or Ph.D. 
level to experts in the field. The workshop aims to provide a platform for 
exchanging fresh ideas and expertise, and for obtaining feedback on ongoing 

We welcome submissions from research and industry within the broad area of 
user modeling and adaptive systems, including:

User models for adaptive systems
 * Modeling behavior of users
 * Modeling user's context
 * Reasoning on user models
 * Interpretation of user behavior and user feedback
 * Machine learning for user modeling

Behavior of adaptive systems
 * Context aware adaptive systems
 * Adaptive navigation support
 * Adaptive presentation
 * Adaptive orientation support
 * Evaluation of adaptive systems

The ABIS workshop will take place from September 24 till September 26 as a 
joint week of workshops on machine learning, knowledge discovery, knowledge 
management, adaptivity, and user modeling (LWA 2007) in Halle, Germany. 
Responsible for the organization of the workshop is the SIG ABIS of the 
German Computer Society.


Paper submissions:           July 7, 2007
Notification of acceptance:  August 14, 2007
Final versions due:          August 30, 2007
ABIS Workshop:               September 24-26, 2007


In order to provide the authors with as much freedom as possible, we do not 
impose strict submission categories. That being said, we would like to 
suggest the following flexible guidelines:

 * FULL PAPERS: full papers are detailed descriptions of scientific work.
   Length: up to 6 pages (including references)
 * SHORT PAPERS: short descriptions of ongoing or beginning work, topics
   for discussion, positions papers, thesis descriptions. Length: up to 3
   pages (including references)
 * DEMONSTRATIONS: all workshop participants are invited to bring demos of
   running systems. It is also possible to submit a summary of the system.
   Length: up to 2 pages (including references). All demos will be presented
   in an interactive demo session.

Submissions should be formatted according to the LWA 2007 templates for LaTeX 
and Word.

The workshop language will be English.

and Wassiou Sitou ([log in to unmask]).
