UMAP 2015 DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM CALL FOR PAPERS



ABOUT THE DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM

Following a tradition started in 1994, the UMAP 2015 Conference will include a Doctoral Consortium Session which provides an unequalled opportunity for doctoral students to explore and develop their research interests under the guidance of a panel of distinguished research faculty.

The consortium format benefits students’ learning about how to become better researchers, and better participants in the research community; academics benefit from seeing new directions, innovative ideas and novel techniques.

The doctoral consortium is implemented as a ‘student mentoring’ program that introduces students to senior researchers in the relevant fields.

Students are expected to document in a brief submission their doctoral research (see below described submission information for further details), which will be evaluated by the consortium committee.

· Good quality applications will be selected for presentation at a dedicated workshop as part of the conference.

· Promising, but less well-developed applications will be selected for presentation at a poster session.

Each student with an accepted application will be assigned a mentor who will provide feedback on the student's work and will discuss the doctoral research with the student and the audience at the consortium.

TOPICS

Topics include (but are not limited to) the areas listed on the UMAP 2015 website:



Techniques in User Modeling & Adaptive Technologies (including: Personalizing information access, Recommending products, Adapting/Contextualizing search, Enhancing learning outcomes, Adapting interfaces, Personalizing search and information retrieval, Adapting activities and workflow)


User Characteristics for User Modelling & Adaptive Technologies (including: Knowledge and skills, Interests and preferences, Special needs, Affective states, Personality, Goals & Plans, Contexts of use, Roles, Cultural characteristics)


Computational methods for User Modelling & Adaptive Technologies (Including: Data collection, User model construction & representation, Algorithms for Personalization & Adaptation, Mediation for user models, Architectures for user modeling & adaptive technologies)


Innovative Applications for User Modelling & Adaptive Technologies (Including: E-commerce, E-Learning, Cultural heritage, Digital libraries, Social Media, Digital TV, Advertisement, Assistive technologies and Healthcare, Entertainment and Games, Recommender systems)


Environments for User Modelling & Adaptive Technologies (Including: Web-based systems, Desktop systems, Virtual or Immersive Environments, Mobile and wearable systems, Smart objects, Groupware Systems)


Design, Usability and Evaluation issues for User Modelling & Adaptive Technologies (Including: Ensuring adequate control, understanding & predictability, Preserving privacy, security and diversity, Avoiding excessive narrowing of experience, Requirements capture, Formative evaluation, User testing and validation)



SUBMISSION INFORMATION

To apply for the UMAP 2015 doctoral consortium, students are asked to submit an abstract (up to a max 6 pages) of their doctoral research that describes:

- the problem being addressed

- the motivation for addressing the problem

- the intended main contributions that the thesis aims to achieve

- the progress made to date (including a clear description of the proposed approach) and the plan of further research

In their submission, each DC contribution may wish to consider some of the following: indication of data to be used for experimentation, indication of implementation approach, indication of evaluation criteria and experimental design, identification of related (state of the art) work, indication of potential innovation, application or contribution for which the work is aimed.



Students should also identify the stage they are in the PhD programme, and a brief description of their background in order to enable the committee to adapt its assistance to each student.



Papers must be submitted via the UMAP Doctoral Consortium submission site by CLICKING HERE



They must be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS style guidelines Click Here

The length of the abstract is limited to maximum of 6 pages.



PROCEEDINGS

Accepted papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings, which will be published as a book by Springer.



FINANCIAL SUPPORT

Funding for selected students with accepted contributions may be available to cover some travel and accommodation expenses. More details will be provided on the conference web site as soon as funds will be available.



IMPORTANT DATES

Submission deadline: March 6th, 2015. (11:59pm Hawaii time)

Acceptance notifications: March 27th, 2015. (11:59pm Hawaii time)

Camera-ready version: April 5, 2015.
