ABIS 2017 – 23rd International Workshop on Personalized Human-Computer Interaction and Recommender Systems

Held at Mensch & Computer 2017
10-13 September
Regensburg, Germany
Submissions: 2 June 2017

ABIS 2017 is an international workshop, organized by the SIG on Adaptivity and User Modeling of the German Gesellschaft für Informatik.
For more than 20 years, the ABIS Workshop has been 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. Researchers, Ph.D. students and Web professionals obtain and exchange novel ideas, expertise and feedback on ongoing research before submitting their work to major conferences such as CHI, UMAP, WWW and SIGIR.


This year's ABIS workshop focuses on topics related to personalization of the human-computer interaction process (e.g., adaptive user interfaces, personalized input methods etc.) and recommender systems.

Topics include but are not limited to:

- Obtaining user data: logging tools, aggregation of data from social networks and other Web 2.0 services, location tracking, sensor networks
- Modeling user data: collaborative filtering, cross-application issues, contextualization and disambiguation, use of ontologies and folksonomies
- Personalization and recommendation: applications in social networks, search, online stores, mobile computing, e-learning, automotive domain, assisting elderly or handicapped persons and other applications areas
- Privacy issues, transparency, user control and scrutability
- Adaptive or intelligent user interfaces: adaptive dialogues, menus or other means of interaction, intelligent agents, feedback mechanisms, interaction with ubiquitous environments, new paradigms in human-computer interactions
- Personalized interaction: approaches to personalize user input or system feedback (involving novel interaction paradigms), related prototypes and studies
- Adaptive support for learning and teaching: methods and tools for individual support in the knowledge acquisition process, adaptive support for collaborative learning
- Evaluation and user studies: laboratory studies, empirical studies in the field and analysis of existing corpora of usage data


The ABIS workshop accepts full or short papers, position statements, Ph.D. research papers and demos, between 2 and 8 pages in length.

FOR STUDENTS (PhD, Master, Bachelor)

Students are encouraged to submit a full or short paper on ongoing work and get advice and feedback from experienced researchers and professionals. You can also submit a 1-page thesis abstract: a summary of your recently submitted Bachelor, Master or Ph.D. theses, including a (permanent) link to the thesis download.

Further, students can attend Mensch & Computer 2017 for free when they register as a student volunteer.

This year, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their work to a book on Personalized Human-Computer Interaction (see that will be published in 2018.
