29th ACM International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization (ACM UMAP 2021)

Utrecht, Netherlands, and Online
June 21-25, 2021

Important Dates:
Proposals due: January 15, 2021
Notification to proposers: January 29, 2021
Tutorial Day: June TBA, 2021

Submission email:

ACM UMAP 2021 is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be given in conjunction with the conference. ACM UMAP is the premier international conference for researchers and practitioners working on systems that adapt to individual users or to groups of users, and which collect, represent, and model user information, Tutorials are intensive instructional sessions aimed to provide a comprehensive introduction to established or emerging research topics of interest for the UMAP community.

Information about Hybrid Conference Format
ACM UMAP 2021 is planned to be a hybrid event, which welcomes everyone who is willing, able and allowed to travel in Utrecht, the Netherlands. However, there will also be an opportunity to attend the conference and the tutorials online. Please check the conference website for updates:

Tutorials can therefore be held by the presenters at Utrecht (with synchronous online streaming), or designed as fully virtual tutorials. The tutorials will most probably be scheduled to start in the morning or evening local time (UTC+1).

Tutorial Topics
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• new user modeling technologies, methods, techniques, and trends (e.g. exploiting data mining and big data analytics for user modeling, evaluation methodologies, data visualization, etc.)
• user modeling and personalization techniques for specific domains (e.g., health sciences, e-government, e-commerce, cultural heritage, education, internet of things, mobile, music, information retrieval, human-robot interaction etc.)
• application of user modeling and personalization techniques for information retrieval and recommender systems
• eliciting and learning user preferences by taking into account users’ emotional state, physical state, personality, trust, cognitive factors

Instructions for Proposers
An ideal tutorial should be broad enough to provide a basic introduction to the chosen area, but it should also cover the most important topics in depth. Tutorial presenters can have one page in the adjunct proceedings.

Tutorial proposals should not exceed 5 pages and should contain the following information:
• Title and abstract of the tutorial for inclusion on the ACM UMAP 2021 website (200 words maximum)
• Tutorial description:
• learning objectives of the tutorial and relevance to ACM UMAP 2021
• targeted audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and prerequisite knowledge or skills
• a brief outline of the tutorial structure
• Information about potential practical sessions
• Tutorial length: full (6 hours) or half day (3 hours)
• Other venues to which the tutorial or part thereof has been or will be presented, in addition to explaining how the current tutorial differs from the other editions
• Proposed tutorial format (hybrid or fully virtual)
• Name, email address, affiliation and brief professional biography of the tutorial instructor(s), indicating previous training and speaking experience

Submission and Review Process
Tutorial proposals should be submitted in PDF by email to:

All proposals will be reviewed by the tutorial chairs. The features that will be evaluated are:
• ability of the tutorial to contribute to strengthening the foundations of UMAP research
• clarity of the tutorial, which should emerge from its description
• organization, as appearing from the outline
• background/experience of tutorial instructor(s) in teaching the target topics

• Proposals due: January 15, 2021
• Notification of acceptance: January29, 2021
• Adjunct proceedings camera ready: May 7, 2021
• Tutorial Day: June TBA, 2021

Proceedings and Registration Policy
A “Workshop/Tutorial Only” fee will be available, as well as the option for student registration.

Workshop and Tutorial Chairs
Berardina Nadja De Carolis, University of Bari "Aldo Moro", Italy

Dietmar Jannach, University of Klagenfurt, Austria
