  Dear colleague, 
  We have the pleasure to inform you that we are organizing the third
  edition of the Workshop on Computational Intelligence for 
  Personalization in Web Content and Service Delivery (CIWP'11)
  at ISDA 2011 Conference, Nov 22 - 24, 2011, Cordoba, SPAIN.

    G. Castellano, M.G.C.A. Cimino, F. Marcelloni, M.A. Torsello

  Workshop page:

  If you are interested to attend this workshop, please
  send an email with a tentative title and a list of authors before
  April 1st, 2011 to the following addresses: 
  torsello at di.uniba.it, m.cimino at iet.unipi.it

   Today, the explosion of multimedia content and available 
  services prompts the need for more effective Web systems,
  that allow users to retrieve the right information and/or
  service at the right time in the right way.
  Personalized retrieval is a promising research direction
  devoted to enhance information retrieval and service 
  customization by exploiting explicit user requests combined
  with implicit user preferences. User preferences are complex,
  heterogeneous, changing, and even contradictory. Moreover,
  information retrieval process is characterized by vagueness
  of queries and approximation in the comparison between the 
  query content and the information in the database. 
  Computational Intelligence (CI) provides valid tools to cope
  with the complexity in the mechanisms underlying Web content
  and service delivery personalization. Indeed, CI encloses 
  different computing paradigms that work synergistically to 
  exploit the tolerance for imprecision, uncertainty, 
  approximate reasoning, and partial truth in order to provide
  flexible information processing capabilities and low-cost 
  solutions. Due to these characteristics, CI techniques are
  suitable to deal with the imprecision and vagueness inherent
  a personalized information retrieval system. Recently, many
  researchers have addressed their interest towards the benefits
  of CI for personalization in Web information retrieval systems.
  This represents a promising direction to improve the effectiveness
  of such systems and to make them adaptive and more flexible.

   We invite prospective authors to submit papers that propose the
  use of CI techniques to advance the technology in the field of 
  Web personalization, with special focus on information retrieval 
  and service delivery. Original contributions are solicited in the
  following topics (but are not limited to): 
  * User behaviour modelling 
  * Context-aware browsing 
  * Automated techniques for user profiling 
  * Web mining for personalization 
  * Data models for Web usage, content and structure data 
  * Collaborative and content based filtering 
  * Clustering in personalization systems 
  * Hybrid personalization systems 
  * Adaptive user interfaces and personalization techniques 
  * Personalization in information retrieval 
  * Context-aware search 
  * Service delivery personalization 
  * Intelligent context-aware services delivery 
  * Explanation and justification in personalization systems 
  * Modelling decision making in personalization systems 
  * Measuring personalization effectiveness 

  * April 1st, 2011: workshop organizers should receive the 
    tentative title and authors of the contributions
  * May 31, 2011: deadline for paper submission;
  * July 22, 2011: notification of acceptance/rejection;
  * September 16, 2011: camera-ready final submission and registration;

  Papers must be directly submitted through the ISDA2011 webpage:
  Please be sure to select "SS1: 3rd Workshop on Computational 
  Intelligence for Personalization in Web Content and Service 
  Delivery (CIWP'11)" in order to properly manage your paper.
  With very best wishes,
