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.

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.

Intoday'sinformationworld,smallpersonalcomputerizeddevices,suchasPDAs, smart phones and other smart appliances, have become widely available and - sential tools in many situations. The ongoing penetration of computers into everyday life leads to so-called ubiquitous computing environments, where c- putational power and networking capabilities are available (and used) eve- where to support the environment's “inhabitants. ” The strive to provide p- sonal services to users made user modelling capability an essential part of any ubiquitous application. Ubiquitous user modelling describes ongoing modelling and exploitation of user behavior with a variety of systems that share their user models. These sharedusermodels caneither be usedfor mutualorfor individual adaptation goals. Ubiquitous user modelling di?ers from generic user modelling by three additional concepts: ongoing modelling, ongoing sharing and ongoing exploitation. Systems thatsharetheir usermodels willimprovethe coverage,the level of detail, and the reliability of the integrated user models and thus allow better functionsofadaptation. Ubiquitoususermodellingimplies newchallenges of interchangeability, scalability, scrutability and privacy. During the past few years ubiquitous user modelling is an ongoing series of workshops focusing on the above challenges. It serves as a meeting place for ubiquitoususermodellingresearchers,fordiscussingnewchallengesandresearch directions and setting up the UbiqUM research agenda. This book presents a selection of papers representing the Ubiquitous User Modelling Workshopseries. We would like to thank the authors that contributed to the workshops and to this book, and to the reviewers that helped improve the extended original workshop papers.

Adaptive Hypermedia has emerged as an important area of both academic and deployed research. It encompasses a broad range of research that will enable personalized, adaptive hypermedia systems to play an even more e?ective role in people’s lives. The Web has enabled the widespread use of many person- ized systems, such as recommenders, personalized ?lters and retrieval systems, e-learning systems and various forms of collaborative systems. Such systems have been widely deployed in diverse domains such as e-Commerce, e-Health, e-Government, digital libraries, personalized travel planning as well as tourist and cultural heritage services. They are particularly promising for users with special needs. The exciting possibilities of such deployed adaptive hypermedia systems rely on research progress in a broad range of areas such as: user pro- ing and modeling; acquisition, updating and management of user models; group modeling and community-based pro?ling;recommender systems and recomm- dation strategies; data mining for personalization; the Semantic Web; adaptive multimedia content authoring and delivery; ubiquitous computing environments and Smart Spaces; personalization for the plethora of mobile devices, such as PDAs, mobile phones and other hand-held devices; and pragmatics such as p- vacy, trust and security. Empirical studies of adaptive hypermedia and Web systems are also critical to informing future directions.
