Abstract

The Trust, Reputation and User Modeling (TRUM) workshop ( http://madmuc.usask.ca/WS-TRUM/ ) pursued the following objectives:

  • To bring researchers together from the communities of trust and reputation modeling and user modeling;

  • To initiate and facilitate discussions on the new trends in trust, reputation and user modeling, and to move the trends forward;

  • To provide a forum for cutting-age research.

Eleven papers were submitted to the workshop. Each submitted paper was carefully reviewed by at least 3 committee members. Finally, seven papers were accepted, including four full papers (12 pages), 2 short papers (8 pages), and 1 poster paper (3 pages + a poster). These high quality papers provide thoughtful discussions on different issues of trust and reputation modeling. They also touch upon the different aspects of user modeling, reflecting the strong connections between trust / reputation modeling and user modeling. All seven accepted papers were invited the postworkshop proceedings and six of them were submitted.
