12th International Workshop on Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization
SMAP 2017 - <>
July 9-10, 2017, Bratislava, Slovakia
Collocated with UMAP 2017
Organized by Foundation for Development of Informatics

*List of accepted papers: <>

*Important dates:
SMAP 2017 Early registration: May 26, 2017
SMAP 2017 Workshop:          July 9-10, 2017

*Aim and Sessions:
SMAP 2017 aims to address several issues of semantic and social multimedia technologies and their use in content creation, media adaptation and user profiling. SMAP 2017 has the support of the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society technical co-sponsorship.

In addition to the regular track, two Special Sessions are organised at SMAP 2017: 

*Special session on Personalized delivery of cultural heritage content
Digital cultural heritage is now a mature field, in which information technologies are used in the service of preserving cultural heritage. The digital form of resources allows for the exploitation of advances in data analytics, semantics, information retrieval, user interaction, profiling and personalization in order to develop new, exciting and stimulating exhibitions and cultural/educational/touristic experiences. The session is broad in scope, with the caveat that emphasis should be on the link between cultural heritage and personalization techniques.

*Special Session on Multimodal affective analysis for human-machine interfaces and learning environments
Affective analysis is a broad research area that focuses on the recognition, interpretation, processing and simulation of human affect, i.e., feelings or emotions. During the last years many efforts in the fields of content understanding and human-machine interaction have turned towards a more human-centered approach and complement traditional semantic-based ones by enhancing them with the users’ affective state while interacting with machines (typically computers, avatars and robots).

The registration for SMAP 2017 is handled by Action M Agency, conference organizer operating in Prague, Czech Republic. You will find all registration details at the following address: <>

SMAP 2017 will be held at Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava (Slovakia) in the new building of the Faculty of Informatics and Information Technologies (Ilkovičova 2, 841 04, Bratislava). The workshop is collocated with UMAP 2017, the 25th conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization.

Bratislava is well connected to the world through neighboring Vienna airports, and also lies in close proximity to other major cities such as Prague and Budapest, from which it is easily accessible by trains.
