SCOPE
---------------------

USER MODELING AND ADAPTIVITY FOR WEB 2.0 AND SOCIAL COMPUTING

This year's ABIS workshop focuses on novel techniques for realizing adaptivity in Web 2.0 applications and on user modeling for Social Computing applications that aim at supporting the communication between users.

Web 2.0 and Social Computing enable applications to gather more data about a user while interacting with the system. Popular applications have gathered huge data sets, providing new possibilities to apply existing personalization and user modeling techniques.

Besides new data, new interactions between users are fostered by Social Computing and Web 2.0 applications. The usage of this collaboration offers a new source of input for adaptation and user modeling in software systems.

The ABIS Workshop has been established as 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 to discuss trends and experiences. We strive to have a diverse group, varying from young researchers working on Master or Ph.D. level to experts in the field. The workshop aims to provide a platform for exchanging fresh ideas and expertise, and for obtaining feedback on ongoing research.

We welcome submissions from research and industry within the broad area of user modeling and adaptive systems, including: 

User models for adaptive systems

    * Modeling behavior of users
    * Modeling user's context
    * Reasoning on user models
    * Interpretation of user behavior and user feedback
    * Machine learning for user modeling
    * Web 2.0 User Modeling
    * Privacy of user modeling data 

Behavior of adaptive systems

    * Context aware adaptive systems
    * Adaptivity in Web 2.0 applications
    * Adaptivity in Social Computing
    * Evaluation of adaptive systems
    * E-Learning in Web 2.0 


SUBMISSION CATEGORIES
---------------------

In order to provide the authors with as much freedom as possible, we do not impose strict submission categories. That being said, we would like to suggest the following flexible guidelines:

    * FULL PAPERS: full papers are detailed descriptions of scientific work. 
      Length: up to 6 pages (including references)
    * SHORT PAPERS: short descriptions of ongoing or beginning work, topics 
      for discussion, positions papers, thesis descriptions. 
      Length: up to 3 pages (including references)
    * DEMONSTRATIONS: all workshop participants are invited to bring demos of 
      running systems. It is also possible to submit a summary of the system.
      Length: up to 2 pages (including references). All demos will be 
      presented in an interactive demo session. 

To submit papers, please go to ABIS 2008 at EasyChair (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=abis08).

The workshop language will be English.
