Web Personalization can be
defined as any set of actions that can tailor the Web experience to a
particular user or set of users. The experience can be something as
casual as browsing a Web site or as (economically) significant as
trading stocks or purchasing a car. The actions can range from simply
making the presentation more pleasing to anticipating the needs of a
user and providing customized and relevant information. To achieve
effective personalization, organizations must rely on all available
data, including the usage and click-stream data (reflecting user
behaviour), the site content, the site structure, domain knowledge, as
well as user demographics and profiles. Efficient and intelligent
techniques are needed to mine this data for actionable knowledge, and
to effectively use the discovered knowledge to enhance the users' Web
experience. These techniques must address important challenges
emanating from the size of the data, the fact that they are
heterogeneous and very personal in nature, as well as the dynamic
nature of user interactions with the Web. These challenges include the
scalability of the personalization solutions, data integration, and
successful integration of techniques from machine learning, information
retrieval and filtering, databases, agent architectures, knowledge
representation, data mining, text mining, statistics, information
security and privacy, user modelling and human-computer interaction.
Original contributions are solicited in the following areas:
Architectures and Systems
Evaluation Methodologies, Metrics, and Case Studies
