Preface, by the Chairs

As the meeting point of several diverse fields, Digital Libraries encompass many different notions of personalization and contextualization. The PersDL2007 workshop, the 10th in the series of thematic workshops organized by the DELOS Network of Excellence (http://www.delos.info/), had as its theme "Personalized Access, Profile Management, and Context Awareness in Digital Libraries" and aimed at providing a forum for presentation of the latest research results, new technology developments, and new applications in the areas of personalized access, profile management, and context awareness in digital libraries.

The workshop was held in Corfu, Greece, June 29-30, 2007, in conjunction with the UM 2007 Conference. It included two keynote talks and twelve papers organized in five sessions. All papers as well as extended abstracts of the two keynote talks are included here.

Bamshad Mobasher (DePaul University), an expert in web mining and web personalization, outlined some of the major issues in building secure personalization systems, concentrating, in particular, on the modeling of attacks, their impact on various algorithms, and methods for automatic detection of attack profiles. Massimo Melucci (University of Padua, Italy), an expert in information retrieval, described how context provides a new perspective in information retrieval and presented a principled approach to modeling and ranking information objects in context using vector spaces.

The program committee for this workshop consisted of 19 members and was chaired by Werner Kießling (University of Ausburg, Germany) and Georgia Koutrika (Stanford University, USA). It accepted 12 papers out of 23 submissions.

We would like to thank all the people who have supported and helped in the organization of this workshop: the authors and presenters of the papers, the reviewers for their effort and help in preparing the workshop's program, and the organizers. In particular, we would like to thank Yannis Stavrakas (National Technical University of Athens, Hellas) for the smooth organization of the workshop.
