16th International Workshop on Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization (SMAP 2021)

SMAP 2021
November 4-5, 2021 

Kindly note that due to the coronavirus outbreak, SMAP 2021 will allow all interested participants to provide either a real-time or pre-recorded online (remote) presentation of their work. More details will be provided upon paper acceptance notification.


The 16th International Workshop on Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization (SMAP 2021) will take place online on November 4-5, 2021. SMAP 2021 will be organized with the support of Ionian University.

The Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization (SMAP) workshop 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. However, as social media applications have nowadays substantially transformed the way organizations, communities, and individuals interact, the scopes of SMAP were extended towards the social aspect, seeking to bring together researchers from the Social Web, as well as from the Semantic Web communities.

After 15 successful workshops starting from Athens (2006), and then London (2007), Prague (2008), San Sebastian (2009), Limassol (2010), Vigo (2011), Luxembourg (2012), Bayonne (2013), Corfu (2014), Trento (2015), Thessaloniki (2016), Bratislava (2017), Zaragoza (2018), Larnaca (2019), and Zakynthos/Online (2020), the SMAP workshop series has been consolidated as a reference event in order to discuss about the newest advances in the field.


SMAP 2021 aims to address several issues of semantic and social multimedia technologies and their use in content creation, media adaptation and user profiling. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
