SMAP 2010: 5th International Workshop on Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization

December 9-10, 2010, Limassol, Cyprus


The Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization (SMAP) Initiative 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. After four successful workshops, SMAP 2006 (Athens, Greece), SMAP 2007 (London, United Kingdom), SMAP 2008 (Prague, Czech Republic) and SMAP 2009 (San Sebastian,
Spain) the Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization workshop series has consolidated as a reference event in order to discuss about the newest advances in the field, including a 2-days main
track of high-quality scientific papers.

The 5th SMAP workshop will be held in Limassol between 9-10 December 2010. The event will be organized by the Cyprus University of Technology (http://www.cut.ac.cy)

Important dates for SMAP 2010:
