  10th International Conference on User Modeling, UM'05

  Edinburgh, Scotland, UK, 24-30 July, 2005

  Call for Papers

  The recognition and management of individual user preferences and needs
  plays a key role in the development of usable services and products.
  The International User Modeling Conferences represent the central forum for the
  discussion and presentation of research and industry results in the
  development of personalized systems, as well as basic research about
  personalization. In the last 25 years, the field of User Modeling has
  produced significant new theories and methods to analyze and model computer
  users in short and long-term interactions. Moreover, methods for
  personalizing human-computer interaction based on user models have
  been successfully developed, applied and evaluated in a number of
  domains, such as information filtering, e-commerce, adaptive
  natural language and adaptive educational systems. Previous successes in
  User Modeling research reflect the cooperation of researchers in different
  fields, including artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction,
  education, cognitive psychology and linguistics.
  New trends in HCI create new and interesting challenges for User Modeling.
  While consolidating results in traditional domains of interest, the
  User Modeling field now also addresses problems of personalized interaction
  in mobile, ubiquitous and context-aware computing and in user interactions
  with embodied, autonomous agents. It also considers adaptation to user
  attitudes and affective states. Furthermore, the User Modeling research is
  being influenced by interdisciplinary fields, such as Customer Relationship
  Management, and could benefit from new emerging technologies for the
  communication in the Web, such as, for instance, Web Services and the Semantic Web.

  The International User Modeling Conferences are characterized by active
  participation of people from the Academy and the Industry, and by lively
  discussions in a pleasant environment. UM'05 is the latest in a conference series begun
  in 1986, and follows recent meetings Johnstown (2003), Sonthofen (2001),
  Banff (1999), Sardinia (1997), Hawaii (1996) and Cape Cod (1994).
  As in past conferences, UM05 offers the following forms of participation: tutorials,
  invited talks, paper and poster sessions, a doctoral consortium,
  workshops and system demonstrations.
  UM'05 invites submissions in following categories:
  *       Papers and posters
  *       Workshops
  *       Tutorials
  *       Doctoral Consortium


  Relevant topics for the conference include, but are not limited, to:

  *       acquisition, updating and management of user models and student models
  *       security and privacy aspects in the management of user data
  *       evaluation of user modeling techniques
  *       user model representation standards
  *       user model information sharing in ubiquitous services and smart environments
  *       user modeling servers
  *       user modeling in the Semantic Web
  *       user modeling and adaptive systems
  *       applications of user modeling systems and techniques
  *       data mining for personalization and cross-recommendation
  *       affective computing
  *       adaptation to the handicapped and elderly
  *       adaptive hypermedia and Web systems
  *       intelligent information retrieval, information filtering and content personalization
  *       collaborative filtering and recommender systems
  *       adaptive user interfaces
  *       dialog planning and response tailoring
  *       plan recognition and generation
  *       presentation planning
  *       recognition and correction of misconceptions
  *       intelligent tutoring systems
  *       human-computer cooperation, user support
  *       adaptive learning environments
  *       personalized Web sites and services
  *       personalized interaction in Virtual Reality and 3D Interfaces
  *       personalized interaction in mobile, ubiquitous and context-aware computing
  *       embodied animated agents
  *       support of collaboration and group modeling
  *       engineering adaptive systems


  All submissions will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality,
  significance, soundness and clarity. Three referees will review each submission.
