                             CALL FOR PAPERS
           Third International Workshop on "Personalized Access, 
          Profile Management, and Context Awareness in Databases"

                              (PersDB 2009)

     in conj. with VLDB’09, 24-28 August 2009, Lyon, France
          Submission deadline:  June 26, 2009

Proliferation of database-driven web sites has brought upon a plethora of information access and 
dissemination applications. Monitoring and trading stock portfolios, news notification, weather 
tracking, and even simple search are just a few examples. In addition, recently, new applications 
have emerged that go beyond information access and dissemination and enhance creativity, 
information sharing and exploration, and collaboration among users, providing richer interaction 
possibilities. Now, users cannot only access content but they can also generate, share and modify 
content, compose their applications, enhance their interface, etc. Web-based communities, wikis, 
social networks, mashups, folksonomies are some of the emerging new applications. In all these 
applications, different notions of user information, such as preferences, community memberships and 
social interactions, and context information, such as a user's social network, location, time, 
and other features of a user's environment, are of paramount importance in order to improve and 
personalize user experience. In this context, new challenges emerge for user-centric, context-aware 
database systems for storing and managing different aspects of user and context information, 
for data management and computing taking into account personal, social and contextual information 
about users and for customizability of their behavior. 

Relevant topics include but are not limited to the following:
 - Modeling and profiling of personal, social and contextual information
    * User and community modeling
    * User profiling and preference elicitation
    * Social network analysis of online environments, community and user discovery
    * Personal ontology modeling
    * Context modeling and context identification
    * Reputation and trust models
    * Social knowledge modeling 

 - Personal, social and context-aware computing and applications
    * Personalization and recommendations
    * Personal data management and computing
    * Information access and sharing techniques
    * Personalized mashups
    * Data management and organization in collaborative applications
    * Social reputation and recommendation systems
    * Online communities and social networking
    * Social computing
    * Reputation and trust management
    * Context-aware data management and processing
    * Privacy-aware computing
    * Intelligent browsing and navigation
    * Novel interfaces supporting user-generated content and social interaction
    * Evaluation methodologies and metrics
    * Query routing and resource allocation in a distributed database
    * Graph databases 

 - New database models and architectures
    * Personal and social databases
    * User-aware and context-aware data and query models
    * Data sharing and integration of access control policies
    * Adaptive database systems
    * Architectures for personalized privacy in databases
    * Multimodal ubiquitous environments
    * Context-aware system architectures 

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers that are not being considered
