Libro recomendado: User Modeling and Adaptation for Daily Routines


“User Modeling and Adaptation for Daily Routines”
HCI Series de Springer.
Editores: Estefanía Martín, Pablo A. Haya y Rosa M. Carro.
Más detalles sobre el libro en:
http://www.springer.com/computer/hci/book/978-1-4471-4777-0
http://link.springer.com/book/10.1007/978-1-4471-4778-7/page/1

Resumen:
This book arises from the motivation of bringing to attention how adaptive methods and techniques can benefit people with special needs in their everyday lives. Assistive technologies, adaptive systems and context-aware applications are three well-established research fields. There is, in fact, a vast amount of literature that covers HCI-related issues in each area separately. However, the contributions in the intersection of these areas have been less visible, despite the fact the potential impact of such synergies may have on improving daily living. In this context, the workshops on “User Modeling and Adaptation for Daily Routines: Providing Assistance to People with Special and Specific Needs (UMADR)”, held at UMAP’2010 and UMAP’2011, respectively, sought to increase the visibility of these challenging works. The interest generated by these two editions gave the initial impulse of this book. The works presented in this book seek to reduce the obstacles encountered by individuals with special needs. Furthermore, they share two particular characteristics: (1) they provide assistance by means of interactive computer systems that can be adapted or adapt themselves to their current users; and (2) they focus on daily life routines rather than virtual access and interaction. We expand the definition of special needs in such a way that the reader can find works that impact on users traditionally considered with special needs, such as those with psychological or cognitive limitations, or elderly people, as well as people facing unusual routines such as health treatments. 

Regardless of the application-domain, the main goal here is to be able to provide a customizable assistance to users according to their context,that is, considering their capabilities, their preferences and needs, their location, or the available resources and devices (PDAs, smart phones, laptops, etc.). Clearly, modeling user’s capabilities, situations, limitations and needs is an essential task for adapting the activities to each user. Thus, this is also one of the key topics of discussion. 
This book pursues a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art practices on user modeling and adaptation for people with special needs, as well as the challenges to be addressed in order to achieve their actual deployment. Therefore, the book topics include analysis, design, implementation and evaluation of adaptive systems to assist users with special needs to take decisions and fulfill daily routine activities, with special emphasis on major trends in: modeling user features, limitations and special needs; representing daily activities, including potential difficulties and decisions to be taken; designing and building adaptive assistants for daily routines; and evaluating the use of this type of assistants.

* A draft workshop call for papers with: the names, affiliations, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of the workshop organizers, who should be experts in the related topics and preferably from multiple institutions
* The paper selection process
* A list of potential program committee members and their affiliations.  

Organizers are encouraged to recruit good quality invited speakers. The workshop proposal should comply with SIGX Co-Located Workshops:
http://www.acm.org/sigs/volunteer_resources/conference_manual/co-located_workshops

Workshop proposals should not exceed 5 pages. Evaluation criteria for workshop proposals will include the quality and level of details of the proposal, the theme of the workshop, its relevance to the main conference, and the overall balance of the conference workshop program.

SUBMISSION OF REGULAR PAPERS:

Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by uploading them
to the evaluation web site at:  http://world-comp.org .
Submissions must be uploaded by March 18, 2013 and must be in either
MS doc or pdf formats (about 7 pages including all figures, tables,
and references - single space, font size of 10 to 12). All reasonable
typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of accepted
papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format to
prepare their final papers for publication.) Papers must not have been
previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.
The first page of the paper should include: title of the paper, name,
affiliation, postal address, and email address for each author. The
first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author and a
maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the content
of the paper. The name of the conference (ie, SERP) must also be
stated on the first page of the paper as well as a 100 to 150-word
abstract. The length of the final/Camera-Ready papers (if accepted)
will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE style) pages.

Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for
originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases of
contradictory recommendations, a member of the conference program
committee would be charged to make the final decision (accept/reject);
often, this would involve seeking help from additional referees.
Papers whose authors include a member of the conference program
committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded review process.
(Essay/philosophical papers will not be refereed but may be considered
for discussion/panels).

The proceedings will be published in printed conference books (ISBN) and
will also be made available online. The proceedings will be indexed in
science citation databases that track citation frequency/data for each
published paper. Science citation databases include: Inspec / IET / The
Institute for Engineering & Technology; The French National Center for
Scientific Research, CNRS, INIST databases, PASCAL (accessable from
INIST, Datastar, Dialog, EBSCO, OVID, Questel.Orbit, Qwam, and STN
International); and others. Though, there is no guarantee that the
proceedings will also be included in SCI EI Compendex/Elsevier indexings;
in the past, the proceedings were included in these databases. Therefore,
we will also be sending the proceedings for indexing procedures to SCI EI
Compendex/Elsevier. The printed proceedings/books will be available for
distribution on site at the conference.

In addition to the above, we have arranged two new book series; one with
Elsevier publishers (Transactions on Computer Science and Applied Computing)
and another with Springer publishers (Transactions of Computational Science
and Computational Intelligence). After the conference, a significant number
of authors of accepted papers of our congress, will be given the
opportunity to submit the extended version of their papers for publication
in these books. We anticipate having between 10 to 20 books a year in each
of these book series projects. Each book in each series will be subject to
Elsevier and Springer science indexing products (which includes: Scopus,
Ei village, SCI, ...).

SUBMISSION OF POSTER PAPERS:

Poster papers can be 2 pages long. Authors are to follow the same
instructions that appear above (see, SUBMISSION OF REGULAR PAPERS) except
for the submission is limited to 2 pages. On the first page, the author
should state that "This paper is being submitted as a poster". Poster

get a feeling about the Congress's atmosphere, see the 2012 delegates

An important mission of the Congress is "Providing a unique platform for
a diverse community of constituents composed of scholars, researchers,
developers, educators, and practitioners. The Congress makes concerted
effort to reach out to participants affiliated with diverse entities
(such as: universities, institutions, corporations, government agencies,
and research centers/labs) from all over the world. The Congress also
attempts to connect participants from institutions that have teaching as
their main mission with those who are affiliated with institutions that
have research as their main mission. The Congress uses a quota system to
achieve its institution and geography diversity objectives."

One main goal of the Congress is to assemble a spectrum of affiliated
research conferences, workshops, and symposiums into a coordinated
research meeting held in a common place at a common time. This model
facilitates communication among researchers in different fields of
computer science, computer engineering, and applied computing. The
Congress also encourages multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary
research initiatives; ie, facilitating increased opportunities for
cross-fertilization across sub-disciplines.
