SMAP 2015
10th International Workshop on Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization
November 5-6,2015, Trento, Italy
Technically co-sponsored by IEEE Computer Society and IEEE Computational Intelligence Society
Proceedings in IEEEXplore

The International Workshop on Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization (SMAP) is the evolution of the Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization initiative, which was founded back 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 nowadays a new, innovative reality becoming more and more important, the scope of the workshop has been extended to social aspects, seeking to bring together researchers and practitioners from both the Social and Semantic Web communities, under the umbrella of the media adaptation and personalization domain. In this manner, SMAP workshop series has consolidated as a reference event in order to discuss about the newest advances in the field.

Aims and topics
SMAP covers different issues of semantic and social technologies and applications in their use for content creation, media adaptation and filtering, as well as user and device profiling. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
