The ultimate goal of the Semantic Web is to enable applications
which offer enhanced and efficient possibilities for end users to
benefit from electronically stored information. The vision of a
Semantic Web, "in which information is given a well-defined
meaning, better enabling computers and people to work in
cooperation" already stresses the importance of efficient end
user support for accessing and working with Web information.
However, current development in the Semantic Web focuses on
formalisms, languages, reasoning and the development of
according technological frameworks, so to speak the first part
of the vision. These technologies shall constitute an environment
capable of enabling enhanced, efficient and user-centered
applications, thus enabling the second part of the vision, and
the goal of the Semantic Web.

This workshop will bring together researchers and practitioners
in the fields of Semantic Web technologies and personalization
in order to discuss their theoretical and practical knowledge,
issues, and experiences for common benefit. It is organized along
two thematical foci and corresponding sessions: Semantic
Web-enabling Technologies for Personalization, and
Semantic-based Content Personalization in Ubiquitous Environments.


For the first session on Semantic Web-enabling Technologies for
Personalization, we expect submissions to discuss especially some
of the following topics:

     * Reasoning and rules for user modeling and personalization
         in the Semantic Web
     * Information extraction for capturing semantics
     * Acquisition and application of user profiles
     * Ontology aligning and evolution for user modeling
     * User-aware querying in the Semantic Web
     * Trust, privacy and transparency in the personalization process
     * Semantic Web Services and Service-oriented architectures
         for personalization


For the second session on Semantic-based Content Personalization
in Ubiquitous Environments, we expect submissions to discuss
especially some of the following topics:

     * Semantically enriched user models for ubiquitous and
          mobile environments
     * Content-based filtering exploiting content semantics
     * Social filtering (collaborative filtering) exploiting content
          semantics
     * Hybrid filtering technologies using content semantics
     * Filtering technologies for heterogeneous content
         based on semantics
     * How to use semantics for preference description


Furthermore, for both sessions, submissions about best practices
and applications are sought, discussing e.g.:

     * Needs: scenarios where personalization brings benefits
     * Experiences: lessons learnt from previous research
     * Solutions: for personalized access to content in a Semantic Web
