Incorporating cognitive and emotional human factors into adaptive applications and processes enhances the user experience, usability and satisfaction while users interacting with hypermedia environments. Main thematic areas emphasize upon the convergence of psychological theories and contemporary research on computer-mediated information processing. It will initially cover topics in the field of cognitive psychology, to the extent that there is an analogy with hypermedia information; on psychological issues with regards to the role of cognitive processing and emotions on information assimilation and learning performance capabilities; on emotional intelligence within the context of Web-based interaction, etc. At a second level, topics on personalization; adaptivity; user modelling; multi-modal interactions; task and user analysis; (adaptive) user interface design principles; user interface evaluation and usability testing; will be covered, to support the adaptation issue in various application levels.
