Nowadays, numerous Web applications rely on implicitly or explicitly
collected data on their users and their behavior in order to
provide adapted and personalized contents and services. As these
applications become increasingly connected, a major challenge is
to allow various applications to exchange, reuse, and integrate
their data and user models, hence, to allow for user modeling and
personalization across application boundaries. A great body of
Semantic Web research on the use of well-defined standards,
vocabularies, and ontologies is currently being adopted to provide
extensibility, flexibility, interoperability, and reusability.

On the one hand, the ability of exchanging, reusing, and integrating
the user models allows applications to enhance and broaden their user
models with additional data. On the other hand, it helps users to get
the content and services that suit their needs and situations and to
syndicate these services in so-called mash-ups. This type of open-world
user modeling poses challenges to the Semantic Web community:

 * How can Semantic Web technology be employed to cope with semantic
   and syntactic heterogeneity in user modeling?
 * How can personalization and user modeling techniques be beneficial
   for Semantic Web systems?

This workshop aims to bring together academic and industrial researchers
and practitioners in the fields of Semantic Web, user modeling, and
personalization in order to discuss theoretical and practical knowledge,
open research issues, applications, and experiences for common benefit.

The workshop will tackle challenges posed by linking user data
and applications, including, but not limited to, the following

 * User modeling and personalization in the Semantic Web
 * Aggregation and integration of distributed user data/profiles
 * Linking data on the Social Web
 * Semantic Mashups linking applications
 * Techniques for connecting distributed user-generated data
 * Methods for exchanging user data
 * Intertwining social networking services
 * Studies assessing the use of external/public user data for
 * Applications demonstrating intermixing of user profiles from
   different sources

All papers must represent original and unpublished work that is not
currently under review. Each paper will be reviewed by at least two
independent referees. Papers will be evaluated according to their
significance, originality, technical content, style, clarity, and
relevance to the workshop. At least one author of each accepted paper
is expected to attend the workshop.

Research papers must be formatted according to the information for
LNCS authors;  and further information about Springer's Lecture Notes
in Computer Science (LNCS) are available at:

We welcome both full papers and short papers (e.g. experience reports,
preliminary reports of work in progress, system demonstration, etc).
Full papers should not exceed 12 pages in length, short papers should
not exceed 6 pages. Papers must be written in English.  Please submit
