Date Title
July 2010 Context-aware interaction approach to handle users local contexts in web 2.0 0
It is a conference paper that was accepted and presented at The Tenth International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE 2010) - http://icwe2010.webengineering.org/ Also, it was published at springer's Web Engineering Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 2010, Volume 6189/2010, pages 248-262. Abstract: Users sharing and authoring of Web contents via different Web sites is the main idea of the Web 2.0. However, Web users belong to different communities and follow their own semantics (referred to as local contexts) to represent and interpret Web contents. Therefore, they encounter discrepancies when they have to interpret Web contents authored by different persons. This paper proposes a context-aware interaction approach that helps Web authors annotate Web contents with their local context information, so that it becomes possible for Web browsers to personalize these contents according to different users’ local contexts.
January 2009 Towards Web Usability: Providing Web Contents According to the Readers Contexts 0
It is a conference paper that was accepted and presented at the User Modeling, Adaptation, and Personalization international conference(UMAP) at January 2009 - http://umap09.fbk.eu/. Also, it was published at springer's Lecture Notes in Computer Science, Volume 5535, 2009, pages 467 -473. Abstract: Web usability has been considered as a key issue to the success of the Web. However, Web readers typically face difficulties since Web pages are presented according to the local contexts of Web authors. Web authors and readers follow their own local contexts to represent and interpret Web contents as they originate from different communities. Hence, there is a need to transform Web contents created according to the authors' contexts into the different contexts of their readers.In this paper, we aim at presenting a solution that provides Web contents according to the reader's context. Our solution is based on an explicit representation of the authors' and readers' local contexts. We rely on RDFa to annotate contents with the author's context and we provide an adaptation process on the client-side that generates contextualized Web contents according to the readers' contexts. We validate our approach through a Firefox extension.
January 2009 Handling Users' Local Contexts in Web 2.0: Use Cases and Challenges 0
It is a workshop paper that was accepted and presented at the International Workshop on Adaptation and Personalization for Web 2.0 - in connection with UMAP 2009 international confernece. Also, it was published online on the CEUR Workshop Proceedings, volume 485, pages 11 - 20 - http://sunsite.informatik.rwth-aachen.de/Publications/CEUR-WS/Vol-485/ Abstract: Creating, updating, and aggregating Web contents from different sources (e.g., Web users and sites) form the core idea of the Web 2.0. However, Web users originate from different communities, and follow their own semantics (referred to as local contexts in this paper) to represent and interpret Web contents. Therefore, several discrepancies could rise up between the semantics of Web authors and readers. In this paper, we present several Web 2.0 scenarios, and illustrate the possible challenges and trends to handle the local contexts of Web users in these scenarios.
2008 Using Microformats to Personalize Web Experience 0
It is a workshop paper that was accepted and presented at the 7th International Workshop on Web-Oriented Software Technologies (IWWOST'2008) in conjunction with the 8th International Conference on Web Engineering (ICWE'2008) Also, it was published at the CURE workshop proceedings volume 445, page 57 -62 (http://ceur-ws.org/Vol-445/). Abstract: As envisioned by its creator, the WorldWideWeb gathers billions of users from different communities all over the world. A recent evolution of the Web has been witnessed with microformats, which allow authors to semantically annotate the contents of Web documents (webpages, blog posts, news articles, RSS feeds, etc.), and enable intersoftware interactions by exporting this annotated content to external applications (calendars, address books, etc.). However, Web users still originate from different communities, and thus follow their own local semantics (refered to as context in this paper) for data interpretation and representation. Hence, there is a need to transform Web content created according to the author's context into the different contexts of its readers. We refer to such transformation process as personalization. In this paper, we identify users' requirements for Web content personalization and we present a solution that takes advantage of microformats in order to enhance users' experience on the Web with contextualized information. We show how microformats offer a great opportunity to adapt the contents of Web documents to different users' contexts
