The 9th International Conference on Signal Image Technology & Internet Systems

The 9th International Conference on Signal Image Technology

Workshop on Adaptability and Personalization (AdaP 2013)

International workshop co-located with:
SITIS 2013, Kyoto, Japan, December 2-5, 2013

Scope of the workshop
The adaptation of systems to its environment in general or its users in particular became a gained more and more research interest over the last year. The approaches range from explicit user modeling over data mining approaches with no explicit model and include real time adaptation to non-persistent user features or to changing contexts. The range of application fields for adaptive systems is spreading enormously and reaches meanwhile everybody’s daily life in the form of washing machines which automatically adapt their program to their content or driving assistants, which adapt to the drivers (or other drivers’) behavior, e.g. Also, the scientific roots of the approaches are very diverse and originate from different scientific communities such as “Human Factors of Software Systems”, “Man-Machine Communication”, “Artificial Intelligence” and “Data Mining”. An interdisciplinary workshop with researchers of such different backgrounds opens the chance to learn from each other and to refine the own approach accordingly. 

Topics of interest
Topics of interest for the workshop include (but are not limited to) adaptations aspects such as

  • (a priori or real time) User modeling and dynamic profiling
  • User interaction analysis and interpretation
  • Adaptation by Data Mining over historic system-user interaction
  • Adaptive and personalized teaching and learning
  • Adaptive and personalized counseling systems
  • Adaptation to short time user features (such as mental state) or changing contexts
  • Computational intelligence for media adaptation and personalization
  • Web adaptation methods and techniques
  • Content customization and adaptation
  • Semantic context modeling and extraction
  • Context-aware multimedia applications
  • Adaptive and personalized multimedia summaries
  • Intelligent personalized interfaces
  • Adaptive or Personalized conversational media
  • Personalization and Adaptation in social networks
  • Privacy/Security issues in Social and Personalized Media Applications

Important Dates
Submission deadline: September 23, 2013
Acceptance/Reject notification: October 19, 2013 
Camera-ready: October 27, 2013
Author Registration: October 27, 2013

Submission Guidelines
All submissions should be in IEEE conference style and PDF format. Papers may not exceed 8 pages. Two extra pages can be purchased. Paper submission will only be online via: Easy Chair ( )
The online system will be used to handle and process all papers and to prepare for the final proceedings. All submitted papers will be carefully evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression by at least two reviewers. The organizers will examine the reviews and make final paper selections. More details about the submission process can be found on the conference website. 

Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and published by IEEE Computer Society and referenced in IEEE explore and major indexes. The proceedings will be available at the conference. Extended version of selected accepted papers will be considered for publication in major journals. 

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the workshop. Registration must be done on the SITIS website at the time when the author sends the camera-ready copy of the accepted paper to the workshop chair. Workshop registration fee is determined by SITIS. A single registration for the workshop or the conference allows to attend both events.
