Nowadays, the profound digital transformation has upgraded the role of the computational system into an intelligent multidimensional communication medium that creates new opportunities, competencies, models and processes. The need for human-centered adaptation and personalization is even more recognizable since it can offer hybrid solutions that could adequately support the rising multi-purpose goals, needs, requirements, activities and interactions of users. HAAPIE workshop embraces the essence of the "human-machine coexistence" and brings together researchers and practitioners from different disciplines to present and discuss a wide spectrum of related challenges, approaches and solutions. In this respect, the first edition of HAAPIE includes 5 papers detailing methods for generating and utilizing user models while users found in different contexts, like museums, executing particular activities, during searching, or found under unpleasant conditions, like stress, and how to utilize contextual information of users, like travelling, for making more tailored recommendations that will enhance their experience. The workshop also includes a panel of three experts from the academia in the area of personalization, user modeling, human factors and Web-based information systems.
