Submission site:

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 workshops to be held in conjunction with
the conference. The workshops provide a venue to discuss and explore
emerging areas of User Modelling and Adaptive Hypermedia research with a
group of like-minded researchers and practitioners from industry and

In this edition, our goal is to have a balanced workshop program comprising
different workshop formats, combining newly emerging, currently evolving
and established research topics. Different full-day and half-day workshop
schemas are possible, such as:


   Working group meetings around a specific problem or topic; participants
   may be asked to submit a white paper or position statement.

   Mini-conferences on specialized topics, having their own paper
   submission and review processes.

   Mini-competitions or challenges around selected topics with individual
   or team participation.

   Interactive discussion meetings focusing on subtopics of the UMAP
   general research topics.

   Joint panels for different workshops.


Workshop proposals should be submitted in PDF format via Easychair
submission site:, not
exceeding 5 pages and organized as follows:


   Workshop title and acronym

   Workshop chair(s), including affiliation, email address, homepage, and

   topics, number of paper submissions and participants, post-workshop
   publications over the years and acceptance statistics.


We encourage both researchers and industry practitioners to submit workshop

Researchers interested in submitting a workshop proposal are invited to
contact us in advance, so we can help to design successful proposals. In
particular, for workshop proposals with novel interactive formats, we are
happy to assist in further developing and implementing the ideas.

We strongly suggest involving organizers from different institutions,
bringing different perspectives to the workshop topic. We welcome workshops
with a creative structure that may attract various types of contributions
and may ensure rich interactions.

The organizers of accepted workshops will prepare a workshop web site
containing the call for papers and detailed information about the workshop
organization and timeline. They will be responsible for their own publicity
and reviewing processes.

There will be a conference adjunct proceedings published by ACM where all
the workshop papers will be published. Hence, the workshop organizers will
need to adhere to the adjunct proceedings publication timeline.
