17th Workshop on Adaptivity and User Modeling in Interactive Systems, 21.-23.09.2009
ABIS 2008: User Modeling and Adaptivity for Web 2.0 and Social Computing
In 2008 the ABIS workshop has focused 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.
Last year submissions from research and industry within the broad area of user modeling and adaptive systems were welcome, including:

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
