Call For Papers

*** The 2nd ACM Workshop in Context Representation in User Modelling ***

This is the call for papers (CfP) of the second edition of the workshop on Context Representation in User Modelling (CRUM) co-located with the ACM Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation, and Personalisation (UMAP), which is taking place on 1st July 2024 in Cagliari, Sardinia, Italy.


Submission deadline: 3 May 2024 AoE (prolonged from 24 April)

Submission: - select the track “UMAP 24 Workshop CRUM”

*** Abstract ***

The evolving landscapes of user modelling, adaptation, and personalisation necessitate a nuanced exploration of context and its impact on human-computer interaction. This evolution represents a paradigm shift towards placing the user at the centre of context representation, acknowledging the multifaceted nature of context as it intertwines with user needs, environmental changes, and technological advancements. The second edition of the Context Representation in User Modeling (CRUM) workshop, themed "Human-Centric Context," seeks to foster a comprehensive understanding of context by focusing on the dynamic interplay between subjective and objective contexts in enhancing user experience. We welcome submissions that explore the nuances of human-centric context across various domains, aiming to standardise context modelling practices that enhance user engagement, privacy, and trust in multi-stakeholder environments.

** Topics ***

Evolving from last year's workshop, CRUM 2024 invites multiple submission types. We welcome long papers (up to 7 pages) and provocation/opinion papers (up to 2 pages). Details on the content expectation for both submission types are given here.

Topics considered relevant to the theme of this workshop include, but are not limited to:

Capturing and storing contextual information;
Situation-aware user modelling and adaptive system;
Algorithmic relevance of situational, temporal, location, and hypermedia context;
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 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; and

Additionally, topics considered relevant to the theme of this workshop include, but are not limited to:

Representing human-specific context information;
Examining human- and domain-specific context, including similarities and differences in how it is captured, stored, or represented;
Privacy and context;
User control and management of context-aware systems;
Evaluation frameworks for human-centred context;
Impact on performance, efficiency, and usability based on context; and
Role of context information in natural language processing, information retrieval, human-agent interaction, and robotics.

** Submission, presentation, and publication ***

CRUM 2024 accepts two types of submissions - long papers (up to 7 pages excluding references and appendices) and provocation/opinion papers (up to 2 pages excluding references and appendices).

All submissions to the workshop should use the same ACM template (single-column format) and formatting adopted by the main UMAP conference. The templates and instructions are available here.

We encourage authors to submit works in progress, negative results, insights, position papers, and case studies on context and its role in user modelling and adaptive systems.

CRUM follows a rigorous double-blind peer review policy. Please ensure that all workshop submissions are anonymised.

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 2024 policy, hybrid activities cannot be supported.

ACM publishes accepted papers in the UMAP adjunct proceedings.

*** Organisation ***

The workshop is co-chaired by:

Owen Conlan, ADAPT Centre, Trinity College Dublin,
Judy Kay, University of Sydney

The workshop is co-organised by Dipto Barman (, Jovan Jeromela, Alok Debnath, Anouk Van Kasteren and Marloes Vredenborg.

Submission deadline: 3 May 2024 AoE (prolonged from 24 April)

Notification: 10 May 2024

Camera-Ready (TAPS System): 18 May 2024
