                               SMAP 2014
                       9th International Workshop
           on Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization
                            November 6-7, 2014
                          Corfu/Kerkyra, Greece


The Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization (SMAP) workshop is the evolution of the Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization initiative, which was founded during the summer of 2006 in an effort to discuss the state-of-the-art, recent advances and future perspectives for semantic media adaptation and personalization. As the social web is a new trend becoming more and more important, the scope of the workshop is now extended to social aspects, seeking to bring together researchers from the social web and from the semantic web communities, under the umbrella of the media adaptation and personalization domain.

After eight successful workshops (in Athens, London, Prague, San Sebastian, Limassol, Vigo, Luxembourg and Bayonne), the SMAP conference series has consolidated as a reference event in order to discuss about the newest advances in the field. 

The 9th SMAP workshop will be held in Corfu/Kerkyra island, Greece. 

This year's workshop is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society and technically supported by the IEEE Semantic Web Task Force.

This year's keynote speakers will be Yannis Manolopoulos (Professor at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki) and Georgios N. Yannakakis (Associate Professor at the University of Malta).

Aim and topics

SMAP covers different issues of semantic technologies and social semantic technologies in their use for content creation, media adaptation and filtering, and user profiling.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Content creation, annotation and modelling for semantic and social web.
- Computational intelligence for media adaptation and personalization
- Semantics-driven indexing and retrieval of multimedia contents.
- User modelling and dynamic profiling.
- Ontologies and reasoning.
- Semantics-based recommender systems: theory and applications.
- Web adaptation methods and techniques.
- Content customization and adaptation.
- Semantic context modelling and extraction.
- Context-aware multimedia applications.
- Adaptive and personalized multimedia summaries
- Multilingual content navigation.
- Social multimedia tagging and multimedia content communities.
- Intelligent personalized interfaces.
- Multimedia standards.
- Hybrid social and semantic approaches to profiling, recommendation engines or adaptation systems.
- Social multimedia applications (livecasting, audio-video sharing).
- User-generated content mechanisms.
- Adaptive / Personalized conversational media.
- Social and semantic media collaboration platforms (e.g. semantic wikis).
- Social web economics and business.
- Social network aggregation.
- Privacy/Security issues in Social and Personalized Media Applications.
- Social data analytics
- Social data mining
- Privacy preserving data mining and social networks

The 1-track, 2-day conference aims to provide a platform for exchanging fresh ideas and expertise, and for obtaining feedback on ongoing research.

Papers submission
The paper submission deadline is extended up to *10/07/2014*. Details about the SMAP 2014 submission guidelines are available on the SMAP'14 website (http://www.smap2014.org).

All papers presented at the workshop will be published by the IEEE Computer Society and submitted to indexing organizations for indexing (IEEE Xplore, DBLP).  

As with previous SMAPs, plans are in place to have extended versions of selected papers appear in an international journal Special Issue to be announced. Please consider https://sites.google.com/site/groupsmap/ for further information.
