Call For Papers

Workshop and Tutorial Proposals: 24 December 2011
Research and Industry Papers: 31 January 2011
Doctoral Consortium Papers: 7 February 2011
Demos and Posters: 15 April 2011 (late 13 May 2011)

UMAP is the premier international conference for researchers and
practitioners working on systems that adapt to their individual users,
or to groups of users, and collect and represent information about users
for this purpose. It is organized under the auspices of User Modeling Inc.

The 19th edition, UMAP 2011, will be held at the Centre Cultural la
Mercè in the city of Girona, Spain.

Conference Topics

The conference spans a wide scope of topics related to user modeling and
personalization, including tailoring of search results, recommending
products, Web usage mining and collaborative filtering. The following
lists describe several dimensions along which UMAP systems can vary.

- Purposes (recommending products, tailoring search results, enhancing
learning outcomes, assuming routine tasks, etc.)
- User characteristics (knowledge and skills, interests and preferences,
contexts of use, roles, , etc.)
- Application domains (e-commerce, healthcare, office work, targeted
advertisement, digital TV, etc.)
- Environments (web-based, desktop, groupware, mobile and wearable
systems, smart objects, etc.)
- Computational methods (data collection, user model extraction and
representation, adaptation methods, architectures, etc.)
- Evaluation (requirements specification, formative evaluation, user
testing, validation, performance tests, etc.)
- Practical aspects (privacy and security, cost-justifying, integrating
UMAP, valuing user experience, etc.)
- User interfaces and interaction (design principles, experimental
evaluation, profile gathering and editing, etc.)
- Case studies of UMAP systems: examples of deployed systems with
significant detail and analysis to guide and motivate future systems
development and research.

Submission Categories

WORKSHOP AND TUTORIAL PROPOSALS (deadline 24 December 2010)

UMAP 2011 is looking for exciting proposals for half-day or full-day
workshops and tutorials. Each workshop should generate discussions that
give the UMAP community a new, organized way of thinking about the
topic, or ideas that suggest promising directions for future research.
Each tutorial should provide its attendees with new knowledge and clear
understanding of the specific topics discussed.

RESEARCH AND INDUSTRY PAPERS (deadline 31 January 2011)

- Long research papers (12 pages maximum) should present original
reports of substantive new research.
- Short research papers (6 pages) should present original and
unpublished highly promising research.
- Industry Papers (long or short) should report on innovative commercial
implementations or applications or experiences in practical situations.

DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM PAPERS (deadline 7 February 2011)

The Doctoral Consortium is a forum for Ph.D. students to get feedback
and advice from the Doctoral Consortium committee. Submissions (4 pages)
should include original and unpublished descriptions of the student's
topic, proposed contributions, and results achieved so far.

DEMOS AND POSTERS (deadline 15 April 2011, late submission 13 May 2011)

UMAP 2011 invites demonstrations of innovative UMAP-based systems
(including research prototypes) and posters. Descriptions (max. 3 pages
in Springer LNCS format) must be original and unpublished accounts of
such systems.

More details and submission instructions at

Accepted research, industry and doctoral consortium papers will be
published by Springer in their Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS)
series, both in hardcopy and electronically through SpringerLink. They
will also be indexed in the ACM Digital Library.
