CRUM @ UMAP 2023 : 1st Workshop on Context Representation in User Modeling
Call For Papers
This is the first call for papers (CfP) of the first edition of the workshop on Context Representation in User Modeling (CRUM) co-located with the ACM Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization (UMAP) is taking place on 26 June 2023 in Limassol, Cyprus.
Submission deadline: 20 April 2023
Submission: https://easychair.org/my/conference?conf=umap23 select the track “1st Workshop on Context Representation in User Modeling (CRUM 2023)”

*** Abstract ***
Context, i.e. the information describing the situation of a user or any object deemed relevant in human-computer interaction, is a critical aspect of user modelling, adaptation, and personalisation. The exact meaning and realisation of contextual information can vary based on the application area, but identifying such relevant information within an interactive situation can determine the appropriateness of the system's behaviour.
The workshop on Context Representation in User Modelling (CRUM) aims to become a place where novel and emerging context representation methods can be introduced while existing approaches can be highlighted, contrasted, and evaluated. We also welcome submissions tackling challenges in related areas, including the use of context information for explainability and context modelling for privacy within adaptive systems.
*** Topics ***
The goal of CRUM 2023 is to be a venue which presents researchers with the opportunity to discuss, present, and promote research about context representation as it impacts the modelling and storing of user information, the use of contextual information in adaptive systems, ubiquitous computing applications, intelligent personal assistants, and all other computer systems that enable personalisation as well as the contribution of contextual information to the functioning, improvement, evaluation, and scrutability of such systems. Topics considered relevant for this workshop which would be listed in the call for contributions include:
[*] Capturing and storing contextual information;
[*] Situation-aware user modelling and adaptive systems;
[*] Context representation for personalisation;
[*] Adaptation of user models based on spatial, temporal, or situational context;
[*] Capturing and ranking application-specific context in hypermedia user applications;
[*] Context as the relevance of static and dynamic external characteristics within recommendation systems;
[*] Contextualising proactive behaviour;
[*] Context-aware personalised pervasive computing;
[*] The role of context for user modelling in recommender systems;
[*] Evaluation frameworks for capturing, representing, and using contextual information in agent decision-making;
[*] Role of context and context representation within explainable adaptation;
[*] Scrutability of contextual representation in personalised systems;
[*] Evaluating the impact of context on user modelling.
*** Submission, presentation, and publication ***
Workshop papers should use the same ACM template (single-column format) and formatting adopted by the main conference (you can retrieve them at https://www.um.org/umap2023/call-for-papers/, Section "Length and formatting").
Workshop papers of up to seven pages (excluding references) are allowed. For appropriate work in progress or smaller results, submissions with fewer pages are encouraged.
At least one author is expected to personally attend the conference and present the paper, for it to be published. In line with the UMAP 2023 policy, hybrid activities cannot be supported.
Accepted papers are published by ACM in the UMAP adjunct proceedings.
*** Organisation ***
The workshop is co-chaired by:
Owen Conlan, ADAPT Centre, Trinity College Dublin, firstname.lastname@example.org
Judy Kay, University of Sydney
The workshop is co-organised by Jovan Jeromela, Dipto Barman, Hassan Zaal, Alok Debnath, and Awais Akbar, all of ADAPT Centre, Trinity College Dublin.
