UMAP 2014 - International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization

Edit Delete
 

The biennial conference series User Modeling (UM, 1986-2007) and Adaptive Hypermedia and Adaptive Web-Based Systems (AH, 2000-2008) have been merged into the annual conference series User Modeling, Adaptation, and Personalization (UMAP). UMAP is the most important conference for those interested in any aspect of (interaction with) systems that acquire information about a user (or group of users) so as to be able to adapt their behavior to that user or group.

UMAP is the premier international conference for researchers and practitioners working on systems that adapt to their individual users, or to groups of users, and collect and represent information about users for this purpose. UMAP is the successor to the biennial User Modeling (UM) and Adaptive Hypermedia and Adaptive Web-based Systems (AH) conferences that were merged in 2009. It is organized under the auspices of User Modeling Inc.

UMAP covers a wide variety of research areas where adaptation may be applied. This include (but is in no way limited to) a number of domains in which researchers are enabling significant innovations based on advances in user modeling and adaptation: Intelligent tutoring systems and intelligent learning environments; Recommender systems; eCommerce; Advertising; Credit checking; Digital humanities; eGovernment; Cultural heritage; Personalized health; and more.

UMAP2014 will explore, study and shape a broad range of dimensions faced by modern user adaptive systems, covering the following Key Areas chaired by leading researchers:

Cultural variations
UMAP2014 will include high quality peer-reviewed papers related to the above key areas and organised in two main tracks - Experience Track and Research Track. Maintaining the high quality and impact of the UMAP series, each paper will have three reviews by program committee members and a meta-review presenting the reviewers’ consensual view; the review process will be coordinated by the program chairs in collaboration with the corresponding area chairs.



Experience track

Peer reviewed papers showcasing innovative use of User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalisation, exploring the benefits and challenges of applying user modeling techniques and adaptation technology in real-life applications and contexts. Papers will be assessed based on the novelty of the application, the potential impact from the utilization of user modeling and adaptation technologies in the specific case, and the usefulness of the presented experience for extending the UMAP research and application.

- Long experience papers (12 pages): Long experience papers should present substantive ‘in-use’ case for UMAP research. They should place the work within the field, clearly indicate the novelty of the application, and present the impact and significance of the experience to advance the UMAP research and application.

- Short experience papers (6 pages): Short experience papers should present an original and highly promising application of user modeling and adaptation technologies, whose merit will be assessed in terms of originality and importance rather than maturity and extensive user validation.



Research track

Peer reviewed, original, and principled research papers addressing both the theory and practice of User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization. Papers will be assessed based on the originality and significance of the presented contribution to the research field, as well as their technical soundness and overall readability.

- Long research papers (12 pages): Long research papers should present original reports of substantive new research. They should place the work within the field, and clearly indicate its innovative aspects and its significance.

- Short research papers (6 pages): Short research papers should present original and highly promising research, whose merit will be assessed in terms of originality and importance rather than maturity and technical validation.



Submission and publication

Papers must be formatted according to Springer’s LNCS style guidelines (http://www.springer.com/computer/lncs?SGWID=0-164-6-793341-0) and not exceed the page length, as specified above. The long and short paper categories will be strictly kept apart in the submission and review process.

Accepted papers will be distributed to conference attendees, and also published by Springer in both online and printed conference proceedings. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper there.



Important dates

Papers submission: 3rd February 2014 (abstract due 27th January)

Notification to authors: 24th March 2014

Camera ready submission: 14th April 2014

Note the dates apply to both experience and research track papers. The submissions times are 11:59pm Hawaii time.
