Call for Tutorials

ACM UMAP 2016 invites tutorials that address the interests of its varied 
audience: people new to the User Modeling, User Modeling and 
Personalisation researchers and practitioners who wish to learn new 
technologies, users of Personalized technologies, and representatives of 
government and funding agencies as well as potential private investors 
in Personalized technologies. We welcome submissions of tutorial 
proposals on all major topics related to user modeling and 
personalisation technologies. We especially solicit proposals for 
tutorials of the following types:
•    Tutorials with a coherent theme providing an introduction to new 
user modeling technologies, methods, techniques, and trends (e.g. 
exploitation of Linked Open Data, ontology-based user modeling, user 
modeling design principles, etc.).
•    Tutorials describing the application of user modeling technologies 
in specific domains (e.g., life-sciences, e-government, e-commerce, 
cultural heritage, educations, mobile, music, etc.).
•   Tutorials presenting techniques from other fields that are of 
relevance for User Modeling research, including semantic web, social 
sciences, digital humanities, biomedical research, HCI, Information 
Retrieval, database, NLP, Internet of Things, data visualization, etc.
Tutorials may focus on theoretical topics, however, we encourage 
organizers to incorporate hands-on sessions where appropriate. The 
tutorial should reach a good balance between the topic coverage and its 
relevance to the community. Tutorials can be half a day or a full day.
