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. 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. The 9th SMAP workshop will be held in Corfu, Greece, after the organization of eight consecutive successful workshops (in Athens, London, Prague, San Sebastian, Limassol, Vigo, Luxembourg and Bayonne).
Aim 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:
- 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 single track, two days long workshop aims to provide a platform for exchanging fresh ideas and expertise, and for obtaining feedback on ongoing research. SMAP 2014 workshop is technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society and technically supported by the IEEE Semantic Web Task Force.
Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society's Conference Publishing Services (CPS). Content will be submitted to indexing companies for possible indexing. Indexing services are independent organizations, and we cannot guarantee that any particular abstract or index entry will be included in Ei Compendex or any other indexing service.
Details about the SMAP 2014 submission guidelines are available on the website.
