Online behavior can range from interaction with services such as Web search engines and recommender systems to the authoring of Web artifacts such as pages, blog posts, and social media updates. As more data are gathered about peoples’ online activities, new techniques are needed to analyze these behaviors and derive actionable knowledge and information. In addition to mined insights, behavioral data can yield a variety of direct user applications, including collaborative filtering and recommendation (that uses the aggregated online behavior of many users), or user modeling and personalization (that may leverage an individual user’s behavior). This calls for novel methods that draw from a wide range of fields such as algorithms, collaborative filtering, data mining, information retrieval, machine learning, and user modeling. It also raises important issues around the preservation of user privacy and the efficiency of algorithms in Web-scale settings.

For the behavioral analysis and personalization track, we invite original and high-quality submissions addressing aspects of the analysis and use of online behavior. The relevant topics include, but are not restricted to, the following:


  • Personalization and recommendation systems
  • Query log, click trail, and traffic data mining
  • User models, query logs, click logs, personalization
  • Collaborative filtering and content ranking using social media
  • Other novel Web data mining algorithms
  • Efficient algorithms for large-scale analysis
  • Spatio-temporal and Uncertain data mining
  • Privacy-preserving behavioral analysis
