Background and Motivation

Adaptive User  Interfaces  are software  artifacts
that improve their ability to interact with a user
by constructing   a  user model  based  on partial
experience  with  that user. Although they  can be
used  in a number of  different tasks, Internet is
one of the domains that can benefit most from this
kind  of software. The  growing amount of contents
and  services  available on  the  WWW  makes  very
difficult  to find   and   select  the pieces   of
information  required by  the users.     Web-based
Adaptive    User  Interfaces    can   provide    a
personalized  user interaction  improving the user
experience   in   a variety  of  contexts  such as
e-commerce, distance  education   or   cooperative

For   a  system  to   be really  adaptive,  simple
memorization of its interaction with the user does
not suffice.  Ideally,  adaptation  results   from
generalizing   previous experiences and   applying
these  generalizations to  new  user interactions,
i.e., from  learning.  However,  although learning
should   play   a key    role in   Adaptive   User
Interfaces,  their   design  goes  far  beyond the
simple application of  a learning method. A number
of   research issues  have  been  addressed from a
variety  of  disciplines   such   as  as   machine
learning,    web mining, intelligent     tutoring,
adaptive   hypermedia,  human-computer interaction
and user modeling. The  goal of this Session is to
bring together researchers and practitioners  from
all of   these areas  to  meet and  discuss common
issues and problems.


Potential participants  should  submit an extended
abstract or paper draft of their work in the area.
Submissions   will    be reviewed   by independent
referees from the Program Committee and should not
exceed 2000 words  for extended abstracts and 5000
words for  paper drafts.  Paper submissions should
be sent via electronic mail as a PostScript or PDF
to  [log in to unmask] Alternatively, 4    hard
copies of the submission can be sent to:

In order to get  an early estimate of the possible
attendance, we  would appreciate  that you send an
email  to  [log in to unmask] or  to some of the
organizers indicating whether you intend to submit
a paper.  Of course,  by   doing so,  you make  no
commitment whatsoever.

Accepted  papers will    be published in  the  SCI
proceedings. We  are talking with  Springer Verlag
for including selected papers in a volume of a new
Springer   International      series   on Advanced
Information Systems.


Attendants  to  this Invited Session must register
for the  main conference  without  additional fee.
See    the         SCI2001          web       page
