The Semantic and Social Media Adaptation and Personalization (SMAP) workshops are 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 workshops 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 eleventh successful workshops –in Athens, London, Prague, San Sebastian, Limassol, Vigo, Luxembourg, Bayonne, Corfu, Trento and Thessaloniki–, the SMAP workshop series has consolidated as a reference event in order to discuss about the newest advances in the field. Each event aims to provide a platform for exchanging fresh ideas and expertise, and for obtaining feedback on ongoing research.
All workshops have been technically co-sponsored by the IEEE Computational Intelligence Society (CIS) and/or the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society (SMCS). All SMAP proceedings have been published by the IEEE Computer Society’s Conference Publishing Services.
The 12th SMAP workshop will be held in Bratislava (Slovakia), 9-10 July 2017.
