Abstract

We present the conception and a partial implementation of a personalized interaction environment for scientific information portals. This environment will support the user in finding documents via the portal and also in managing and working with these documents once they have been retrieved. To this end, it will combine existing techniques from document management systems, automatic recommenders, and browsing assistants via an underlying user model that represents the current interests of the user. The environment is currently in its early implementation phase, with an early version of the document management tool completed.
