Special Issue on: "Intelligent Techniques for Personalization and Recommendation"

Guest Editor : Dra. Daniela Godoy, UNICEN University, Argentina

In recent years, personalization and recommendation technologies have emerged as a means to help users to cope with the problem of information overload caused by the explosive growth of resources available through on-line sources. Examples include adaptive systems, which adapt their behaviour to user preferences and needs, and recommender systems that predict the relevance of diverse items (e.g., movies, travels, products, etc.) according to the user interests. Efficient intelligent techniques are needed to mine data gathered from user behaviour for actionable knowledge enabling the enhancement of the user experience. Intelligent techniques to be applied in personalization and recommendation must address important challenges arising from both the technological and the human perspective, which require the involvement of multiple research fields such as user modelling, machine learning, intelligent information retrieval, data and text mining, statistics, computational intelligence, human-computer interaction and intelligent software agents.

The aim of this issue is to bring together researchers and practitioners working on personalization and recommendation technologies based on intelligent techniques to share their insights, research achievements and experiences in the development of real-world applications.
