    Aims and Scope


    User Modeling and User-Adapted Interaction provides an interdisciplinary forum for the dissemination of new research results on all aspects of user modeling and user-adapted interaction. The journal publishes high quality original papers contributing to these fields, including the following areas:

    acquisition of user and student models
    conceptual models, mental models
    levels of user expertise
    intelligent information retrieval
    plan recognition and generation
    presentation planning
    adaptive interfaces
    adaptive agents
    information filtering
    adaptive hypertext and hypermedia
    adaptation to the handicapped and elderly
    user stereotypes
    formal representation of user and student models
    shell systems for user modeling
    tutoring strategies
    applications in office machines and consumer electronics
    electronic micro-marketing
    privacy and security of information for personalization

    Relevant papers from the fields of psychology, linguistics and the instructional sciences are also considered if they bear implications for the design of computational systems.

    The central audience of the journal consists of researchers, students and industrial practitioners from the following areas: artificial intelligence (focus on knowledge-based systems), human-computer interaction (focus on cognitive engineering and intelligent interfaces), linguistics (focus on pragmatics and dialog models), and the instructional sciences (focus on computer-based tutoring systems).
