Call for Papers - ACM UMAP 2020
28th ACM International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization
Theme: "Responsible Personalization"

Genoa (Italy)
July 14-17, 2020

Abstracts due: January 31, 2020 (mandatory)
Papers due: February 7, 2020

ACM UMAP – User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization – is the premier international conference for researchers and practitioners working on systems that adapt to individual users or to groups of users, and that collect, represent, and model user information. ACM UMAP is sponsored by ACM SIGCHI and SIGWEB, and organized with User Modeling Inc. as the core Steering Committee, extended with past years’ chairs. The proceedings are published by ACM and will be part of the ACM Digital Library.

ACM UMAP covers a wide variety of research areas where personalization and adaptation may be applied. This includes a number of domains in which researchers are engendering significant innovations based on advances in user modeling and adaptation, recommender systems, adaptive educational systems, intelligent user interfaces, e-commerce, advertising, digital humanities, social networks, personalized health, entertainment, and many more.

We welcome submissions related to user modeling, personalization and adaptation in any area; the conference web site provides a detailed (but not proscriptive) list of topics and sub-topics of importance to the conference. As the theme for UMAP 2020 is “Responsible Personalization,” submissions in all areas that emphasize ethical dimensions of personalized systems are welcome.

For details, see the conference website (

* Personalized Recommender Systems
* Adaptive Hypermedia and the Semantic Web
* Intelligent User Interfaces
* Personalized Social Web
* Technology-Enhanced Adaptive Learning
* Privacy, Fairness, and Transparency
* Personalized Health
* User Modeling and Personalization Applications
* Theory, Opinion, Reflection

Papers will be submitted through EasyChair:

Long (8 pages + references) and Short (4 pages + references) papers in ACM style. Original research papers addressing the theory and/or practice of UMAP, and papers showcasing innovative use of UMAP and exploring the benefits and challenges of applying UMAP technology in real-life applications and contexts are welcome.

Long papers should present original reports of substantive new research techniques, findings, and applications of UMAP. They should place the work within the field and clearly indicate its innovative aspects. Research procedures and technical methods should be presented in sufficient detail to ensure scrutiny and reproducibility. Results should be clearly communicated and implications of the contributions/findings for UMAP and beyond should be explicitly discussed.

Short papers should present original and highly promising research or applications. Merit will be assessed in terms of originality and importance rather than maturity, extensive technical validation, and user studies.

Separation of long and short papers will be strictly enforced so papers will not compete across categories, but only within each category. Papers that receive high scores and are considered promising by reviewers, but didn’t make the acceptance cut may be revised and resubmitted as posters.

Papers must be formatted using the ACM SIG Standard (SIGCONF) proceedings template:

All accepted papers will be published by ACM and will be available via the ACM Digital Library. To be included in the Proceedings, at least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper there. Student registration fee is allowed to students who present a student paper.

Abstracts: January 31, 2020 (mandatory)
Full paper: February 7, 2020
Notification: March 27, 2020
Camera-ready: May 3, 2020

Note: The submissions times are 11:59pm AoE time (Anywhere on Earth)

General chairs
Tsvi Kuflik, The University of Haifa
Ilaria Torre, University of Genoa

Program chairs
Robin Burke, University of Colorado, Boulder
Cristina Gena, University of Turin

Separate calls will be sent for Workshops and Tutorials, Doctoral Consortium, Posters, and Late Breaking Results, as these have different deadlines and submission requirements.
