AIM AND SCOPE
--------------

Proliferation of database-driven web sites has brought upon a 
plethora of information access and dissemination applications. 
Monitoring and trading stock portfolios, news notification, 
weather tracking, and even simple search are just a few examples. 
In addition, recently, new applications have emerged that go 
beyond information access and dissemination and enhance 
creativity, information sharing and exploration, and 
collaboration among users, providing richer interaction 
possibilities. Now, users cannot only access content but they 
can also generate, share and modify content, compose their 
applications, enhance their interface, etc. Web-based communities, 
wikis, social networks, mashups, folksonomies are some of the 
emerging new applications. In all these applications, different 
notions of user information, such as preferences, community 
memberships and social interactions, and context information, 
such as a user's social network, location, time, and other 
features of a user's environment, are of paramount importance in 
order to improve and personalize user experience. In this context, 
new challenges emerge for user-centric, context-aware database 
systems for storing and managing different aspects of user and 
context information, for data management and computing taking 
into account personal, social and contextual information about 
users and for customizability of their behavior.
