UMAP 2012 -- 20th International Conference on
User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization

Montreal, Canada - 16-20 July 2012

Call for Workshops and Tutorial Proposals
Submission deadline: 17 January 2012

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.

The conference will take place at the UQAM university campus, situated 
in the very heart of the arts and entertainment district of Montreal. 
The city offers a wide array of attractions and a unique blend of North 
American and European culture.


UMAP 2012 is looking for exciting proposals for half-day or full-day 
workshops and tutorials. Each workshop should generate discussions that 
give the UMAP community a new, organized way of thinking about the 
topic, or ideas that suggest promising directions for future research. 
Each tutorial should provide its attendees with new knowledge and clear 
understanding of the specific topics discussed.

We encourage you to send inquiries, proposal plans and questions well 
before the submission deadline. We will be glad to provide feedback and 

Final workshop and tutorial submissions should be made via EasyChair. 
Please read the proposal guidelines on the website for more details on 
the submission format and review criteria. 


Workshops provide an efficient forum for community building and sharing 
of ideas on emerging topics or specific research questions. We are 
looking for well structured workshop programs that aim to produce 
answers, artefacts and/or strategic directions for the field.  We 
strongly encourage innovative workshop formats that move away from the 
classic 'mini-conferences'. And why not think differently and accept 
demos, videos or even blogs as elements of workshop submissions?

Workshop proposals (3 pages) should outline the area, goals, scope, 
format and expected outcomes of the workshop, and also introduce the 
members of the organizing team and their backgrounds.


Do you have an advanced topic that you are excited about and want to 
share? Or do you like to teach young researchers about fundamental 
topics or necessary skills?

You have 3 pages to describe what your tutorial is about, why it is 
important, why you are the right person to give the tutorial and how you 
will organize the tutorial.


     17 January 2012 - Submission of proposal by email to workshop chairs
     17 February 2012 - Notification about acceptance or rejection
     13 May 2012 - Tentative deadline for submissions to accepted workshops
