User-adaptive systems have evolved from small-scale stand-alone applications to
interactive Web-based applications that are often deployed on a larger scale.
Consequently, the need has arisen to move from prototypical systems to scalable,
deployable solutions. At the same time, a shift can be seen from rule-based,
mentalistic user modeling approaches to 'Web 2.0' approaches that involve
machine learning, data mining, and collaborative techniques.

Past research provided a large body of methods for adaptation/personalization,
and techniques for user modeling, usage mining, and collaborative filtering.
Conceptual frameworks splitting the adaptation process into various layers
provide guidance for implementing user-adaptive systems. Based on these building
blocks, various groups have created their own frameworks, among others AHA!,
APELS, and Personal Reader. Framework design provides an opportunity to reuse
components or even whole layers of the adaptation process. Reuse of components
such as user behavior observation and logging tools, user model storage promotes
faster development, better feature selection, and more robust systems.

Although, system fragmentation enables component reuse and speeds up the
development of the new systems, there are several issues. First, decomposition
of a monolithic system should result in a good abstraction of the data and
process model to provide a convenient basis for reuse. Second, the data traffic
between the separated system components may intensify. As the number of system
users increases issues related to scalability might arise. This is especially
true for user-adaptive and cognitive systems where the modeling and
personalization components are traditionally computationally and data intensive.

Existing work on the Web-based user-adaptive and cognitive systems, including
work on frameworks, shown that there exists a strong overlap between conceptual
models of the decomposed adaptation process and the practical implications of
its design. In this situation, a logical step is to compare already working
systems with emerging approaches and models. In this workshop we seek to
identify current practices and experiences with concrete implementations of
user-adaptive and cognitive systems or specific components - varying from
experimental, small-scale prototypes to systems that are deployed on a larger


Topics include but are not limited to:
* user behavior observation and user data collection: embedded into the adaptive
system or available as standalone components or add-ons,
* user data management: data storage platforms and formats, the use of open
standards, querying techniques or APIs, interoperability issues,
* reusing reasoning and adaptation techniques,
* scalability and performance issues of user modeling and adaptation,
* generalizable techniques for adaptation, personalization and recommendation,
* translations of conceptual designs into concrete implementati
