The Fifth International Workshop on Ubiquitous Personal Assistance (UPA’20) aims to share experiences of current research endeavors on digital personal assistance. We invite submissions of papers focused on advancing towards digital assistants that provide a high level of personalization, through proactive and effective support of users’ activities, in an unobtrusive manner. In particular, we aim to put forward the discussion on how digital assistants can better exploit Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) technologies to provide guidance and support for specific endeavors of people’s lives, such as those related to training/education, professional, and personal activities. Furthermore, this workshop seeks to find novel ways to exploit cognitive aspects, such as users’ intentions, motivations, and emotions to build smarter digital assistants that better fit each particular user.
