UMAP 2020 - Third call for papers


Call for Papers - ACM UMAP 2020

28th ACM International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and

Theme: "Responsible Personalization"

Genoa (Italy)

July 14-17, 2020



Abstracts due:  January 31, 2020 (mandatory)

Papers due:     February 7, 2020




ACM UMAP – User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization – is the premier
international conference for researchers and practitioners working on
systems that adapt to individual users or to groups of users, and that
collect, represent, and model user information. ACM UMAP is sponsored by
ACM SIGCHI and SIGWEB, and organized with User Modeling Inc. as the core
Steering Committee, extended with past years’ chairs. The proceedings are
published by ACM and will be part of the ACM Digital Library.

ACM UMAP covers a wide variety of research areas where personalization and
adaptation may be applied. This includes a number of domains in which
researchers are engendering significant innovations based on advances in
user modeling and adaptation, recommender systems, adaptive educational
systems, intelligent user interfaces, e-commerce, advertising, digital
humanities, social networks, personalized health, entertainment, and many

We welcome submissions related to user modeling, personalization and
adaptation in any area; the conference web site provides a detailed (but
not proscriptive) list of topics and sub-topics of importance to the
conference. As the theme for UMAP 2020 is “Responsible Personalization,”
submissions in all areas that emphasize ethical dimensions of personalized
systems are welcome.



For details, see the conference website (

* Personalized Recommender Systems

* Adaptive Hypermedia and the Semantic Web

* Intelligent User Interfaces

* Personalized Social Web

* Technology-Enhanced Adaptive Learning

* Privacy, Fairness, and Transparency

* Personalized Health

* User Modeling and Personalization Applications

* Theory, Opinion, Reflection



Papers will be submitted through EasyChair:

Long (8 pages + references) and Short (4 pages + references) papers in ACM
style. Original research papers addressing the theory and/or practice of
UMAP, and papers showcasing innovative use of UMAP and exploring the
benefits and challenges of applying UMAP technology in real-life
applications and contexts are welcome.

Long papers should present original reports of substantive new research
techniques, findings, and applications of UMAP. They should place the work
within the field and clearly indicate its innovative aspects. Research
procedures and technical methods should be presented in sufficient detail
to ensure scrutiny and reproducibility. Results should be clearly
communicated and implications of the contributions/findings for UMAP and
beyond should be explicitly discussed.

Short papers should present original and highly promising research or
applications. Merit will be assessed in terms of originality and importance
rather than maturity, extensive technical validation, and user studies.

Separation of long and short papers will be strictly enforced so papers
will not compete across categories, but only within each category. Papers
that receive high scores and are considered promising by reviewers, but
didn’t make the acceptance cut may be revised and resubmitted as posters.

Papers must be formatted using the ACM SIG Standard (SIGCONF) proceedings

All accepted papers will be published by ACM and will be available via the
ACM Digital Library. To be included in the Proceedings, at least one author
of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the
paper there. Student registration fee is allowed to students who present a
student paper.
