For the Social Personalization workshop, we aim to attract researchers
from all over the world working in the fields of User Modeling,
Personalization and Recommendations where the social context plays a
fundamental role. This topic is important because it involves
leveraging new sources of information that are specific for social
systems such as shared items and tags, user public profiles, social
connections, and logs of user social activities in order to improve
people's information access in a wide variety of tasks and across
different devices. These social information sources offer social
personalization systems a chance to compensate for the lack of
information and structure that is used by traditional personalization
technologies ranging from recommender systems to E-learning.
Thus, we invite submissions which may include the following topics,
but are not limited to:

* novel approaches for social personalization in recommender systems
* novel approaches on personalized social collaboration
* novel approaches on social linking
* novel methods for social search and navigation
* novel methods for social predictive models
* novel social methods for information visualization and display
* applications of the aforementioned topics to diverse domains
(education, smart cities, music, etc.)
* any other methods that exploit new forms of social data for personalization

The goal of this workshop is to share and discuss research that goes
hopefully beyond classic personalization techniques, trying to
capitalise potentially useful information available in social data for
paving the way to more efficient personalized information access

Submissions: We solicit posters (1-2 pages) and research papers (4-6
pages), both in the ACM conference paper style. Papers should be
submitted in EasyChair to
