Call For Papers
*** CALL FOR TUTORIAL PROPOSALS ***
28th ACM International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation
and Personalization (ACM UMAP 2020)
University of Genoa, Genoa, Italy, July 14-17, 2020
Proposals due: January 20, 2020
Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=umap2020
ACM UMAP 2020, 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, is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be given in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials are intensive instructional sessions aimed to provide a comprehensive introduction to established or emerging research topics of interest for the UMAP community.
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, 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.
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.
PROPOSAL FORMAT AND SUBMISSION
Tutorial proposals should be submitted in PDF format via Easychair submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=umap2020, not exceeding 5 pages and containing the following information:
Title and abstract of the tutorial for inclusion on the ACM UMAP 2020 website (200 words maximum).
learning objectives of the tutorial and relevance to ACM UMAP 2020

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
good organization, as appearing from the outline
background/experience of tutorial instructor(s) in teaching the target topics.
A “Workshop/Tutorial Only” fee will be available, as well as the option for student registration.
