With the explosive growth of resources available through the Internet,
information overload has become a severe concern to users. Web users
are commonly overwhelmed by huge volume of information and are faced
with the challenge of finding the most relevant and reliable
information in a timely manner. Recommender and reputation systems
represent tools for efficient selection of the most relevant and
reliable information resources, and the interest in such systems
has increased dramatically over the last few years, driven by the
demand for online personalization applications. Web-based recommender
systems are the most notable application of web personalization.
Combined with reputation systems, Web users can get recommendations
with high reliability and quality. However, web personalization has
not yet been well-exploited; difficulties arise while selecting
resources through recommender and reputation systems from technology
perspective and social perspective. Aiming to promote high quality
research in order to overcome these challenges, this workshop will
provide a forum for academic and industrial practitioners to
exchange understandings of past, present and future trends in Web
personalization and recommendation making, and strengthen the
research in the areas of Web personalization, reputation and
recommender systems.
