Call For Papers

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. UMAP is the successor to the biannual User Modeling and Adaptive Hypermedia conferences that were merged in 2009. It is organized under the auspices of User Modeling Inc.

The conference spans, but is not restricted to, the following topics:

* Purposes of UMAP: personalizing information, recommending products, tailoring search results, enhancing learning outcomes, personalizing help, assuming routine tasks, adapting interfaces, ...
* User characteristics for UMAP: knowledge and skills, interests and preferences, special needs, affective states, goals and plans, contexts of use, roles, cultural characteristics, ...
* Application domains for UMAP: e-commerce, e-learning, cultural heritage, healthcare, assistive technologies, digital libraries, office work, recommender systems, targeted advertisement, digital TV, ...
* Environments for UMAP: web-based systems (including the semantic/social Web), desktop systems, groupware systems, mobile and wearable systems, smart environments, smart objects, virtual environments, ...
* Computational methods for UMAP: data collection, user model extraction and representation, adaptation methods, architectures for UMAP, ...
* Evaluation of UMAP: requirements specification, formative evaluation, user testing, validation, performance tests, ...
* Practical aspects of UMAP: privacy and security, cost-justifying UMAP, integrating UMAP, valuing user experience, ...

Student Support

This conference series has awarded considerable travel support to students in the past, and it is expected that there will also be student funds available for UMAP 2010. Authors of accepted technical and doctoral consortium papers will receive highest priority.

Important Dates

Workshop Proposals
Monday 23 November 2009

Workshop proposals (3 pages) should outline the area, goals, scope and format of the workshop, introducing also the members of the organizing team and their backgrounds. Preference will be given to workshops that aim to produce answers to one or more explicitly formulated questions and that involve interactive presentations and constructive work, as opposed to "miniconferences" that comprise mainly paper presentations.

Tutorial Proposals
Monday 23 Novemer 2009

Tutorial proposals (3 pages) should describe the topic of the tutorial and its importance, the intended style of presentation, and the instructor's qualifications. Conference participants can attend tutorials at no extra charge. Tutorial instructors will receive a complementary conference registration.
Research Papers
abstracts: Monday 11 January 2010
full papers: Monday 18 January 2010
rebuttal window opens: Thursday 18 February 2010 (two days only)
final reviews to authors: Monday 1 March 2010
camera-ready version: Monday 15 March 2010

Long research papers (12 pages maximum) should present original reports of substantive new research. They should place the work within the field, and clearly indicate its innovative aspects and its significance.

Short research papers (6 pages) should present original and unpublished highly promising research, whose merit will be assessed in terms of originality and importance rather than maturity and technical validation.

Both categories will be strictly kept apart in the review process. Only in extremely unusual circumstances can long papers be relegated to the short paper category.
Industry Papers
abstracts: Monday 11 Janunary 2010
full papers: Monday 18 January 2010
rebuttal window opens: Thursday 18 February 2010 (two days only)
final reviews to authors: Monday 1 March 2010
camera-ready version: Monday 15 March 2010

The Industry Track solicits submissions covering innovative commercial implementations or applications of UMAP technologies, and experience in applying recent research advances to practical situations. Submissions may be either long papers (12 pages maximum) whose technical density should be comparable to that of research track submissions, or short papers (6 pages). Industry Track submissions must describe work performed in industry or concern industrial applications, and will typically include at least one industry author.
Doctoral Consortium Papers
Monday 18 January 2010

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. They should clearly indicate the work that remains to be done and the questions on which the student would especially like to receive advice.
Tuesday 18 May 2010

Demonstrations will showcase research prototypes of UMAP-based systems at the conference. Descriptions of demonstrations (3 pages) should be original and unpublished accounts of such systems. They should be accompanied by a specification of the system requirements, and by a draft poster of up to 9 slides or a single slide of about 24"x36" / ISO A1.
Tuesday 18 May 2010

Descriptions of posters (3 pages) should be original and unpublished accounts of innovative research ideas, projects, or results. They should be accompanied by a draft poster of up to 9 slides or a single slide of about 24"x36" / ISO A1.
