Overview
++++++++

User-adaptive  systems have evolved from small-scale stand-alone
applications to
interactive  Web-based  applications  that are often deployed on a larger
scale.
Consequently, the need has arisen to move from prototypical systems to
scalable,
deployable  solutions.  At  the  same time, a shift can be seen from
rule-based,
mentalistic  user  modeling  approaches  to  'Web  2.0'  approaches that
involve
machine learning, data mining, and collaborative techniques.

Past  research  provided a large body of methods for
adaptation/personalization,
and  techniques  for  user  modeling, usage mining, and collaborative
filtering.
Conceptual  frameworks  splitting  the  adaptation  process  into various
layers
provide guidance for implementing user-adaptive systems. Based on these
building
blocks,  various  groups  have  created their own frameworks, among others
AHA!,
APELS,  and  Personal  Reader. Framework design provides an opportunity to
reuse
components  or  even whole layers of the adaptation process. Reuse of
components
such as user behavior observation and logging tools, user model storage
promotes
faster development, better feature selection, and more robust systems.

Although,  system  fragmentation  enables  component  reuse  and  speeds  up
the
development  of  the new systems, there are several issues. First,
decomposition
of  a  monolithic  system  should  result  in a good abstraction of the data
and
process  model to provide a convenient basis for reuse. Second, the data
traffic
between  the  separated system components may intensify. As the number of
system
users  increases  issues  related to scalability might arise. This is
especially
true   for   user-adaptive   and   cognitive  systems  where  the  modeling
and
personalization components are traditionally computationally and data
intensive.

Existing  work  on  the Web-based user-adaptive and cognitive systems,
including
work  on frameworks, shown that there exists a strong overlap between
conceptual
models  of  the  decomposed adaptation process and the practical
implications of
its  design.  In  this  situation,  a logical step is to compare already
working
systems  with  emerging  approaches  and  models.  In  this  workshop we
seek to
identify  current  practices  and  experiences  with concrete
implementations of
user-adaptive  and  cognitive  systems  or  specific  components  - varying
from
experimental,  small-scale  prototypes  to systems that are deployed on a
larger
scale.

Topics
++++++

Topics include but are not limited to:
* user behavior observation and user data collection: embedded into the
adaptive
    system or available as standalone components or add-ons,
* user  data  management:  data  storage  platforms and formats, the use of
open
    standards, querying techniques or APIs, interoperability issues,
* reusing reasoning and adaptation techniques,
* scalability and performance issues of user modeling and adaptation,
* generalizable techniques for adaptation, personalization and
recommendation,
* translations of conceptual designs into concrete implementati
