Special Issue on: “Personalisation of Multimedia-based Destination Management Systems”

Guest Editor: Dimitris Kanellopoulos, University of Patras, Greece


Nowadays, the widespread adoption of multimedia computing, the deployment of destination management systems (DMS) and the growing availability of ontology-based portals in the tourism industry have converged to gradually increase the range and complexity of multimedia content delivery services for tourist purposes. Basic multimedia applications for tourism are already available, and more complex semantic-based services are under development or expected to be launched soon, among which are the services of intelligent DMS.

These developments open a challenging issue: the problem of personalistion of such services. This problem implies the adaptation of the tourism information content to the technical environment of the users (device and network type) and to their individual preferences providing personalised assistance for selecting and locating interesting aspects of tourism products/services (e.g. hotels availability, travelling routes, characteristics of tourist attractions, etc., among a great number of proposed services). This special issue is intended to foster state-of-the-art research contribution to all research areas either directly applying or contributing to solving the issues related to multimedia personalisation of destination management systems.
