As in the previous two years, the current workshop aims to continue the investigation of the way culture can be represented within the overarching goal of imparting knowledge via intelligent tutoring systems.
It also aims to stimulate discussion on the impact of human cultures on ITS systems and reflect on those emerging technologies that need to be developed to more fully integrate cultural considerations.
Finally, it aims at sharing and expanding the knowledge we have about culture, while raising new research questions and opening research opportunities for the ITS community.
This year, we have decided to utilize the gathering of intercultural researchers to foster greater discussion and interaction.
Hence, we have organized an interactive session around the question Cultural modelling: This session was inspired by the observation that the questions currently being faced about cultural modelling are similar to those that John Self addressed about the feasibility of student modelling in general in his seminal paper, Bypassing the intractable problem of student modelling.
Furthermore, similarly to previous editions, CATS also features several traditional paper presentations. Papers concerned with issues of representing culture as well as its impact and influence in the domain of ITS were solicited. A total of five full papers have been selected to be included in these proceedings and to be presented during the workshop.
An additional team of researchers is also invited to present their on-going project during the workshop. Our interdisciplinary program committee consists of researchers from ten different countries, each with a unique view on culture.

Individualism versus Collectivism (IDV) This refers to the strength of the ties people have to others within the community. People in individualist cultures focus primarily on themselves and their direct relatives.

Since e-learning systems are used by a wide variety of students with different characteristics, being adapted to user s model and profile is an essential feature. This paper presents an improvement of an adaptive e- learning environment called AdaptWeb, based on a rich context model as an extension to the traditional student modeling.
Adaptation, context-aware, learning environments, cultural-aware. Many authors now agree that one of the most desired characteristics of these environments to cope such diversity is that of being adaptive and personalized .
Personalization is the process of adapting a computer application to the needs of specific user in e-learning domain a student or teacherand it takes advantage of knowledge acquired and registered about them , .
In contrast to customization - which is a user-initiated and user-driven process, personalization is system-initiated and system-driven, thus requiring the system to monitor the user s profile changes in order to adapt the system dynamically. The most common contents of existing student models for e-learning are: However, ELEs may be dynamically 1 10 adjusted not only according to the student s model but also depending on a richer notion of context .
In our work, context is considered as having cultural and technological perspectives, in addition to previous individual and pedagogical contents related to student modeling.
We organize this contextual information in a multidimensional space where each dimension is represented by a specific ontology, which may be handled separately or jointly by the system. A personalized ELE based on context provides the learner with exactly the material he needs, and appropriate to his knowledge level and that makes sense in a special learning situation, which together with external factor is known as a scenario in our work.
Thus, for each scenario, an ELE is dynamically adjusted depending on the context information available. In this paper, we present an architecture that increments even more the actual systems' personalization capabilities making use of ontologies to model the student s context in different scenarios.
Our goal is to improve user s interaction with the system by a more dynamic and adapted feedback to user s needs in a particular time.
Thus, we believe that the learning process can be improved as well. This paper is structured as follows.
