2nd Workshop on

Semantic Personalized Information Management: Retrieval and 
Recommendation (SPIM 2011)

in conjunction with ISWC2011, October 23-27, 2011, Bonn, Germany

Deadline for paper submission: August 15, 2011

Search engines implementing the canonical search paradigm are adequate 
for most ad-hoc keyword-based search tasks, but they reach limits when 
user needs have to be satisfied in a personalized way. With the advent 
of the Semantic Web, new opportunities emerge for semantic information 
retrieval systems to better match user needs. Next generation search 
engines should implement a novel search paradigm, where the user 
perspective is completely reversed: from finding to being found. 
Recommender Systems may help to support this new perspective, because 
they have the effect of pushing relevant objects to potentially 
interested users. An emerging approach is to use Semantic Web 
technologies to model information about users, their needs and 
preferences, their context and relations, and to incorporate data from 
other resources like Linked Open Data. The aim of the workshop is to 
investigate whether and how this large amount of wide-coverage and 
linked semantic knowledge can significantly improve the 
search/recommendation process in those tasks that cannot be solved 
merely through a straightforward matching of queries and documents.

The list below provides the topics of interest of this workshop.

* Systems that create, exploit, and evaluate semantic technologies for 
improving PIM
* Exploiting Linked Open Data for PIM
* Semantic search: information retrieval, extraction and filtering
* Semantic exploratory browsing
* Semantic recommender systems
* Personalized search: ranking integration, privacy issues, novelty and 
* Ontology-based user modeling and user model aggregation
* Personalized interaction in mobile, ubiquitous and context-aware computing
* Use of semantic technologies in UI/HCI
* Hybridizing Semantic Web and Machine Learning techniques for PIM
* New personalization algorithms for large semantic data sets
* Applications for SPIM

We welcome work at all stages of development: papers can describe 
applied systems, empirical results or theoretically grounded positions.
All papers must represent original and unpublished work that is not 
currently under review. 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
Submissions must adhere to the Springer LNCS format (see the example 
document with author instructions), and be made through the EasyChair 
conference system.

Full papers: 10-12 pages. Original mature research
Short papers: 6-8 pages. Original ongoing research
Posters: 4 pages. Original ongoing research or research ideas of visual 
Accepted papers will be included in the workshop proceedings and will be 
published on the workshop webpage and on CEUR-WS.org site.

Submissions due: August 15, 2011
Notification: September 5, 2011
Camera-ready: September 12, 2011

Workshop day: TBA
