UbiqUM 2008

January 13th 2008, Gran Canaria, Spain

in conjunction with the 2008 International Conference on Intelligent User Interfaces (IUI 2008)

Selected Topics of Interest

Ubiquitous user modeling implies new challenges of scalability, scrutability and privacy. Furthermore, new issues of decentralization, communication and integration have to be addressed. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • User modeling in mobile and ubiquitous computing
  • Distributed and externalized user modeling
  • Integrated reasoning and inferences with user and context models
  • Spatial and temporal reasoning for ubiquitous user modeling
  • Construction and acquisition of distributed user models
  • Conflict resolution within ubiquitous user modeling
  • Machine learning for ubiquitous user modeling
  • User modeling in intelligent environments like smart homes or smart cars
  • Semantic Web approaches and ontologies for distributed user modeling
  • Ubiquitous user modeling for entertainment and cultural heritage
  • Personalized user interfaces in pervasive computing
  • Privacy, security and trust in ubiquitous user modeling
  • Evaluation of ubiquitous user modeling
  • Interoperability of applications like recommender systems, adaptive hypermedia, e-learning, adaptive navigation guides, personalized shopping guides
