This book constitutes the proceedings of the First International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation, and Personalization, held in Trento, Italy, on June 22-26, 2009. This annual conference was merged from the biennial conference series User Modeling, UM, and the conference on Adaptive Hypermedia and Adaptive Web-Based Systems, AH. The 53 papers presented together with 3 invited talks were carefully reviewed and selected from 125 submissions. The tutorials and workshops were organized in topical sections on constraint-based tutoring systems; new paradigms for adaptive interaction; adaption and personalization for Web 2.0; lifelong user modelling; personalization in mobile and pervasive computing; ubiquitous user modeling; user-centred design and evaluation of adaptive systems.

New approaches are needed that could move us towards developing effective applicable intelligent systems for problem solving and decision making, One of the main efforts in intelligent systems development is focused on knowledge and information management which is regarded as the crucial issue in smart decision making support. The 14 Chapters of this book represent a sample of such effort. The overall aim of this book is to provide guidelines to develop tools for smart processing of knowledge and information. Still, the guide does not presume to give ultimate answers. Rather, it poses ideas and case studies to explore the complexities and challenges of modern knowledge management issues. It also encourages its reader to become aware of the multifaceted interdisciplinary character of such issues. The premise of this book is that its reader will leave it with a heightened ability to think - in different ways - about developing, evaluating, and supporting intelligent knowledge and information management systems in real life based environment.

Class-tested and coherent, this textbook teaches classical and web information retrieval, including web search and the related areas of text classification and text clustering from basic concepts. It gives an up-to-date treatment of all aspects of the design and implementation of systems for gathering, indexing, and searching documents; methods for evaluating systems; and an introduction to the use of machine learning methods on text collections. All the important ideas are explained using examples and figures, making it perfect for introductory courses in information retrieval for advanced undergraduates and graduate students in computer science. Based on feedback from extensive classroom experience, the book has been carefully structured in order to make teaching more natural and effective. Slides and additional exercises (with solutions for lecturers) are also available through the book's supporting website to help course instructors prepare their lectures.

Die zunehmende Bedeutung der Social Media (Synonym: Soziale Medien) macht sich auch in den Bibliotheken bemerkbar, für die es nun gilt, diese Entwicklung aktiv mitzugestalten oder von ihr mitgestaltet zu werden. Informationseinrichtungen wie Bibliotheken und Studiengänge der bibliothekarischen und informationswissenschaftlichen Bereiche sind aufgefordert, sich den neuen Herausforderungen zu stellen und adäquate Lösungen zu liefern. Dabei rückt der informations- und kommunikations-technologische sowie der betriebswirtschaftliche Anteil immer mehr in den Vordergrund. Aber auch die gesellschaftlichen, kulturellen, politischen und wirtschaftlichen Implikationen sind in die Lehre zu integrieren, um sich letztendlich in einer komplexen, krisengezeichneten Welt wie der unsrigen zurechtzufinden. Die folgenden Beiträge beschäftigen sich mit dem Potenzial Sozialer Medien und zeigen neben theoretischen Betrachtungen vor allem praktische Beispiele. (Quelle: Homepage des Verlags).

Social information access is defined as a stream of research that explores methods for organizing the past interactions of users in a community in order to provide future users with better access to information. Social information access covers a wide range of different technologies and strategies that operate on a different scale, which can range from a small closed corpus site to the whole Web. The 16 chapters included in this book provide a broad overview of modern research on social information access. In order to provide a balanced coverage, these chapters are organized by the main types of information access (i.e., social search, social navigation, and recommendation) and main sources of social information.
