Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization (SMAP) workshop is the evolution of the Semantic Media Adaptation and Personalization initiative, which 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 and personalization.
As social media applications have substantially transformed the way organizations, communities, and individuals interact, the scopes of the workshop are now extended towards this new trend, seeking to bring together researchers from the social web as well as from the semantic web communities, under the umbrella of the media adaptation and personalization domain.
After six successful workshops –in Athens, London, Prague, San Sebastian, Limassol and Vigo–, the SMAP workshop series has consolidated as a reference event in order to discuss about the newest advances in the field.
The 7th SMAP workshop will be held in Luxembourg city, Luxembourg.
The 1-track, 2-day conference aims to provide a platform for exchanging fresh ideas and expertise, and for obtaining feedback on ongoing research. Proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society’s Conference Publishing Services (CPS).
SMAP 2012 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Systems, Man, & Cybernetics Society and IEEE Computational Intelligence Society. It is supported by the IEEE CIS Semantic Web Task Force and the IEEE-SMC Technical Committee on Intelligent Internet Systems. Discussions are in progress to get additional sponsoring from the Fond National de La Recherche Luxembourg (FNR).
