ACM/IEEE Workshop on Contextualized Attention Metadata: personalized access to digital resources
23. 06. 2007
FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS
June 23, 2007
Held in conjunction with the
===First Call for Papers===
Effective and efficient access to relevant digital resources is one of the key challenges in digital libraries. Contextualized attention metadata (CAM) can be used to improve personlized access to resources. CAM captures the attention that a user spends on resources in a specific context. Attention metadata can extend and amend user profiles thus enhances personalization in existing systems. Furthermore, CAM enables advanced methods to deal with the large amount of availabe digital information. CAM streams are collected from all applications that a user may interact with, including server-side sources like digital libraries and client-side sources like office suites and web browsers.
The workshop intends to bring together researchers and practitioners from relevant communities (digital libraries, information systems, personalization, information retrieval, database systems, data mining, user modeling, psychology and technology enhanced learning, etc.) to share their knowledge, results and expertise about their research on attention metadata. In general, the workshop aims to foster and improve collaboration between communities, e.g. by discussing relevant cross-disciplinary research approaches for attention metadata. In more detail, the workshop aims to discuss suitable algorithms, techniques, technologies, architectures and designs to merge and process attention metadata. And finally, the workshop aims to evaluate the current status and progress of work on attention metadata in general and contextualized attention metadata specifically.
===Topics of interest (but not limited)===
- Extend user and resource profiles with contextualized attention metadata
The workshop will be strongly discussion oriented. To that effect, all accepted papers will be made available online before the workshop and the presentations of the papers will be short. Presenters will be asked to focus more on comparison with related work presented by others and demonstration of early prototypes, so as to take maximum advantage of the added value of a face-to-face meeting.
Authors are invited to submit original unpublished research as full papers (8 pages), work-in-progress as short papers (max. 4 pages) or position statements (max. 2 pages). All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the program committee for originality, significance, clarity and quality. Accepted papers will be fast-tracked for a special issue of a scientific journal.
Authors should use the ACM SIG proceedings template (http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html). All submissions should be sent to:
