For the Social Personalization workshop, we aim to attract researchers from
all over the world working in the fields of User Modeling, Personalization
and Recommendations where the social context plays a fundamental role. This
topic is important because it involves leveraging new sources of
information that are specific for social systems such as shared items and
tags, user public profiles, social connections, and logs of user social
activities in order to improve people's information access in a wide
variety of tasks and across different devices. These social information
sources offer social personalization systems a chance to compensate for the
lack of information and structure that is used by traditional
personalization technologies ranging from recommender systems to
Thus, we invite submissions which may include the following topics, but are
not limited to:

* novel approaches for social personalization in recommender systems
* novel approaches on personalized social collaboration
* novel approaches on social linking
* novel methods for social search and navigation
* novel methods for social predictive models
* novel social methods for information visualization and display
* applications of the aforementioned topics to diverse domains (education,
smart cities, music, etc.)
* any other methods that exploit new forms of social data for

The goal of this workshop is to share and discuss research that goes
hopefully beyond classic personalization techniques, trying to capitalise
potentially useful information available in social data for paving the way
to more efficient personalized information access technologies.

Submissions: We solicit posters (1-2 pages) and research papers (4-6
pages), both in the ACM conference paper style. Papers should be submitted
