Conf/CfP - 12th International Workshop on Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization, 9-10 July, 2017, Slovakia

Publish Date: Nov 14, 2016

Deadline: Feb 26, 2017


The 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. However, as Social Media applications have substantially transformed the way organizations, communities, and individuals interact, we have the scopes of SMAP extended towards this new trend, seeking to bring together researchers from the social web as well as from the semantic web communities.

The 12th SMAP workshop will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia, after the organization of eleven consecutive successful workshops (in Athens, London, Prague, San Sebastian, Limassol, Vigo, Luxembourg, Bayonne, Corfu, Trento and Thessaloniki).

Aim and topics

  • SMAP 2017 aims to address several issues of semantic and social multimedia technologies and their use in content creation, media adaptation and user profiling. Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

  • Computational intelligence for media adaptation and personalization
  • Semantics-driven indexing and retrieval of multimedia contents
  • User modelling and dynamic profiling
  • Ontologies and reasoning
  • Multimedia standards
  • Semantics-based recommender systems: theory and applications
  • Web adaptation methods and techniques
  • Hybrid social and semantic approaches to profiling, recommendation engines or adaptation systems
  • Social multimedia applications (livecasting, audio-video sharing)
  • Social multimedia tagging and multimedia content communities
  • User-generated content mechanisms
  • Privacy/Security issues in Social and Personalized Media Applications
  • Privacy preserving data mining and social networks
  • Content customization and adaptation
  • Semantic context modelling and extraction
  • Context-aware multimedia applications
  • Adaptive and personalized multimedia summaries
  • Multilingual content navigation
  • Intelligent personalized interfaces

  • Social web economics and business
  • Social network aggregation
  • Social data analytics
  • Social data mining
  • Adaptive/Personalized conversational media

Special Sessions

In addition, SMAP 2017 seeks special sessions proposals addressing emerging issues in all above aspects that will complement the regular program. Authors will have the opportunity to present their work in short papers that will appear in the official SMAP 2017 workshop proceedings.


As with all previous editions of SMAP, all accepted papers are planned to be published by IEEE in IEEEXplore. Based on the quality of the work presented and its estimated potential selected papers will be invited for consideration, in a revised and extended form, for inclusion in an additional journal publication.

Submission Guidelines

Each submitted paper will be refereed by at least three members of the SMAP 2017 Program Committee, based on its relevance, originality, significance, technical soundness and clarity of expression. Submissions must be in English, and can present mature research or experimental results as well as promising work in progress. Papers must be formatted according to the IEEE 2-column conference article style, with a limit of 6 pages, including all figures, tables and references. A minimum paper length of 4 pages is also imposed.
