Call for Workshop Proposals to be held in conjunction with
24th Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization (ACM UMAP)
July 13-17, 2016, Halifax, Canada

ACM UMAP 2016, which will be held for the first time as an ACM conference
and will be collocated with Hypertext 2016, 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 Academia.

We welcome proposals for half-day and full-day workshops. We encourage
proposals for a wide range of workshops, including but not limited to:
  o Working group meetings around a specific problem or topic; such
workshops may wish to ask participants to submit a white paper or
position statement.
  o Mini-conferences on specialized topics; such workshops may have
their own paper submission and review processes.
  o Mini-competitions or challenges around selected topics with
individual or team participation.
  o Interactive discussion meetings focusing on a subtopic in the
general User Modelling and Adaptive Personalization research topics.


The workshop proposals should be PDF documents not exceeding 5 pages,
organized as follows:
  o Workshop title and acronym
  o Workshop chair(s), including affiliation, email address, homepage,
and experiences in organizing such events
  o Abstract (up to 300 words) and topics
  o Motivation on why the topic is of particular interest at this time
  o Workshop format, discussing the mix of events such as paper
presentations, invited talks, panels, and general discussion
  o Intended audience and expected number of participants
  o List of (potential) members of the program committee (at least 50%
have to be confirmed at the time of the proposal)
  o Requested duration (half day or full day)
  o Past versions of the workshop, including URLs as well as submission
and acceptance statistics.

We encourage you to contact us in advance with workshop ideas; we will
work with prospective workshop organizers to help them design
successful proposals. In particular for workshop proposals with novel
interactive formats we are happy to assist you in further developing
and implementing your ideas. We encourage both researchers and
industry practitioners to submit proposals.

Proposals for continuations of existing workshop series are welcome as
well; a brief statement on the development of the workshop series,
e.g., in terms of topics, number of paper submissions and participants
or post-workshop publications over the years should be provided.


Important deadlines and anticipated timeline (upon acceptance) is as follows:
  o Proposal submission deadline: *31 January 2016*
  o Notification of proposal acceptance: 14 February 2016
  o Deadline to send the URL of your workshop’s website: 29 February 2016
  o Deadline to disseminate the workshop’s 1st call for papers: 1 March 2016
  o Deadline to disseminate the workshop’s 2nd call for papers: 1 April 2016
  o Deadline to disseminate the workshop’s 3rd call for papers: 1 May 2016
  o Workshop paper submission deadline: 7 May 2016
  o Notification to authors: 1 June 2016
  o Camera-ready paper: 7 June 2016
  o Publication of electronic proceedings: 30 June 2016

Additionally, we strongly suggest to have organizers from different
institutions, bringing different perspectives to the workshop topic.
We welcome workshops with a creative structure that attracts various
types of contributions and ensures 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. The organizers will be responsible for
their own reviewing process, publicity, and publishing electronic
proceedings (e.g., on the CEUR-WS website). They will be required to
closely cooperate with the UMAP workshops chairs to finalize the above
mentioned details.
