Research on user modeling (UM) and personalization can be traced back to the early1970s,butitwasnotuntilthemid-1980sthatthecommunityofresearchers working on user modeling and user-adaptive systems started its own series of - ternational meetings on UM. After three international workshops in 1986, 1990, and 1992, User Modeling was transformed into an increasingly prominent bi- nial international conference. Its sustainability was ensured by User Modeling Inc. (http://www. um. org), a professional organization of researchers that has solicited and selectedbids to run the conference,nominated programchairs,and provided ?nancial backing to UM conferences. Between 1986 and 2007, 11 UM conferences were held (including the three workshops just mentioned), bringing together researchers from many areas and stimulating the development of the ?eld. Since the early 1990s, the rapid growth of the World Wide Web and other new platforms has populated the lives of an increasing number of people with a great variety of computing systems. This rampant growth has tended to increase the need for personalization,a topic that more and more researchersand practiti- ers are addressing and that has given rise to several new conferences. Among them,anotherbiennialseriesonAdaptiveHypermediaandAdaptiveWeb-Based Systems (Adaptive Hypermedia or AH for short) quickly established itself as a majorforumandsistereventtoUM,running onalternateyearswithit. Between 2000and 2008,?veAH conferenceswere held. During this period, the increasing complexity and prominence of Web systems prompted the enlargement of the list of topics covered by the AH series.

User Modeling and Adaptation for Daily Routines is motivated by the need to bring attention to how people with special needs can benefit from adaptive methods and techniques 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 that such synergies may have a great impact on improving daily living. Presenting a comprehensive review of state-of-the-art practices on user modeling and adaptation for people with special needs, as well as some reflections on the challenges that need to be addressed in this direction, topics covered within this volume include the analysis, design, implementation and evaluation of adaptive systems to assist users with special needs to take decisions and fulfil daily routine activities. Particular emphasis is paid to major trends in user modeling, ubiquitous adaptive support, diagnostic and accessibility, recommender systems, social interaction, designing and building adaptive assistants for daily routines, field studies and automated evaluation. Nine leading contributors write on key current research in the domain of adaptive applications for people with special needs, integrating and summarizing findings from the best known international research groups in these areas. User Modeling and Adaptation for Daily Routines highlights how adaptation technologies can ease daily living for all, and support sustainable high-quality healthcare, demographic ageing and social/economic inclusion. highlights how adaptation technologies can ease daily living for all, and support sustainable high-quality healthcare, demographic ageing and social/economic inclusion.

This book focuses on the importance of adaptation and personalization in today’s society and the upgraded role computational systems and the Internet play in our day-to-day activities. In this era of wireless communication, pervasive computing and the Internet of Things, it is becoming increasingly critical to ensure humans remain central in the developmental process of new technologies to guarantee their continued usefulness and a positive end-user experience. Organized into three clear parts - theory, principles and practice, a holistic approach to designing and developing adaptive interactive systems and services has been adopted. With an emphasis on distinct human factors, both basic and applied research topics are explored, extending from human-centred user models, driven by user’s individual differences in cognitive processing and emotions, to the creation of smart interfaces that can handle the ever increasing volume and complexity of information to the benefit of the end-user. Human-Centred Web Adaptation and Personalization – From Theory to Practice is meticulously crafted to serve researchers, practitioners, and students who wish to have an end-to-end understanding of how to convert pure research and scientific results into viable user interfaces, system components and applications. It will serve to bridge the knowledge gap that still remains by suggesting interaction design and implementation guidelines for areas like E-Commerce, E-Learning and Usable Security.

Addresses the impacts of data mining on education and reviews applications in educational research teaching, and learning This book discusses the insights, challenges, issues, expectations, and practical implementation of data mining (DM) within educational mandates. Initial series of chapters offer a general overview of DM, Learning Analytics (LA), and data collection models in the context of educational research, while also defining and discussing data mining’s four guiding principles— prediction, clustering, rule association, and outlier detection. The next series of chapters showcase the pedagogical applications of Educational Data Mining (EDM) and feature case studies drawn from Business, Humanities, Health Sciences, Linguistics, and Physical Sciences education that serve to highlight the successes and some of the limitations of data mining research applications in educational settings. The remaining chapters focus exclusively on EDM’s emerging role in helping to advance educational research—from identifying at-risk students and closing socioeconomic gaps in achievement to aiding in teacher evaluation and facilitating peer conferencing. This book features contributions from international experts in a variety of fields. Includes case studies where data mining techniques have been effectively applied to advance teaching and learning Addresses applications of data mining in educational research, including: social networking and education; policy and legislation in the classroom; and identification of at-risk students Explores Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs) to study the effectiveness of online networks in promoting learning and understanding the communication patterns among users and students Features supplementary resources including a primer on foundational aspects of educational mining and learning analytics Data Mining and Learning Analytics: Applications in Educational Research is written for both scientists in EDM and educators interested in using and integrating DM and LA to improve education and advance educational research.
