Regarding the interaction style, in online configuration systems one basic form is common - a system driven dialog with fill-out forms (which can be extended by extensive personalization through a dynamically adapted front-end). Most importantly, online users are well-acquainted with this interaction style; they also often feel comfortable when the system actively guides them through the configuration process.

Whereas most existing approaches base their adaptation features on long-term user models, we focus on techniques for the personalization of the interaction also for first-time-users, for which there is nearly no support in existing systems up to now. Finally, we discuss architectural aspects for building and maintaining such highly-adaptive web applications. 2. PERSONALIZATION AND ADAPTATION IN THE CONFIGURATION PROCESS Personalization can be considered as a means to help individuals satisfy a goal that efficiently and knowledgeably addresses their need in a given context by understanding their preferences (Ricken, 2000).
