9th Workshop on Intelligent Techniques for Web Personalization & Recommender Systems -In conjunction with IJCAI 2011, Barcelona, Spain

 

Web Personalization and recommendation systems have been steadily gaining ground as essential 
components of today's Web based applications, including in e-commerce and customer relationship 
management, in the delivery of business services, in providing support for Web search and navigation,
and in reducing cognitive overload in information rich interactive social Web applications. The 
proliferation of Web 2.0 applications has allowed users to go beyond simple consumers of information
and instead actively participate in shaping collaborative environments in which users, resources,
and user-provided content are all networked together. This, in turn has increased the need for more
intelligent and personalized services that help users interact with and navigate these complex 
information spaces. These include a new generation of recommender systems that integrate multiple 
online channels, are more scalable, are more adaptive, can better handle user interactivity, and 
are more adept at user preference elicitation. To achieve this, such applications must rely on 
intelligent techniques from AI, machine learning, Web mining, statistics, and user modelling in 
order to leverage all available data, including the usage and click-stream data (reflecting user 
behaviour), the content and meta-data associated with resources, semantic domain knowledge, user 
profile information, and underlying network structures. Efficient and intelligent techniques are 
needed to mine this data for actionable knowledge, and to effectively use the discovered knowledge
to enhance the users' experience.

 

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners From Web Mining, Web 
Personalization, Recommender Systems, and User Modeling communities in order to foster an exchange
of information and ideas and to facilitate a discussion of current and emerging topics related to 
the development of intelligent Web personalization and Recommender Systems.


PAPER SUBMISSION AND PARTICIPATION 

We invite original contributions in a variety of areas related to Web personalization and Recommender
Systems, including Data Modeling and Integration; User Modeling and Preference Elicitation; Systems
and Architectures; Enabling Technologies; and Evaluation Methodologies, Metrics, and Case Studies.
