Unifying Theories of Programming
TLDR
This paper instantiates the ideas in Hoare and He’s Unifying Theories of Programming, with each different treatment of undefinedness formalized as a UTP theory, and shows how classical logic can be used to prove semi-classical facts.
The Adaptive Web, Methods and Strategies of Web Personalization
TLDR
This paper presents a meta-modelling architecture for the adaptive web that automates the very labor-intensive and therefore time-heavy and expensive process of manually cataloging and cataloging content on the web.
Personalised hypermedia presentation techniques for improving online customer relationships
This article gives a comprehensive overview of techniques for personalised hypermedia presentation. It describes the data about the computer user, the computer usage and the physical environment that

    User Modeling and User-Adapted Interaction
  • 27 March 2001
TLDR
The paper reviews the development of generic user modeling systems over the past twenty years and discusses the architectures that have been explored so far, namely shell systems that form part of the application, central server systems that communicate with several applications, and possible future user modeling agents that physically follow the user.
User Modeling : Recent Work , Prospects and Hazards
TLDR
A survey of recent developments in user modeling concentrates on the modeling of a user’s knowledge, plans, and preferences in a domain, on the exploitation of new sources of information about the user, on issues of representation, inference and revision, on user modeling shell systems and servers, and on the verification of the practical utility of user models.

    FLAIRS Conference
  • 21 April 2006
TLDR
This workshop will explore the potential of research on "privacy-enhanced personalization," which aims at reconciling the goals and methods of user modeling and personalization with privacy constraints imposed by individual preferences, conventions and laws.
Expert-Finding Systems for Organizations: Problem and Domain Analysis and the DEMOIR Approach
  • D. Seid, A. Kobsa
  • Computer Science
    J. Organ. Comput. Electron. Commer.
  • 1 March 2003
TLDR
The approach is presented, called DEMOIR (dynamic expertise modeling from organizational information resources), which is a modular architecture for expert-finding systems that is based on a centralized expertise-modeling server but also incorporates decentralized components for expertise information gathering and exploitation.
