*UMAP'12: Demos and Posters (Deadline: May 13, 2012)*
User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization 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 organized under the
auspices of User Modeling Inc.
UMAP 2012 invites demonstrations and posters of innovative UMAP-based
systems (including research prototypes). Submissions include a 3-page
extended abstract, and presentation will be at a poster-and-demo session. You
are encouraged to submit your poster or demo by 13 May 2012. Please adhere
to the submission instructions.


Demonstrations will showcase research prototypes and commercially available
products of UMAP-based systems at the conference. Demonstrations are an
excellent way to showcase implementations and to receive feedback from the
conference audience. Descriptions of demonstrations (max. 3 pages in
Springer LNCS format) must emphasize the innovation in terms of user
modeling, adaptation or personalization. On an extra page (not to be
published), submissions should include a specification of the technical
requirements for demonstrating the system at UMAP 2012, and must be
accompanied by a draft poster of a single slide of about 24"x36" (ISO A1)
or alternatively up to 9 ISO A4 slides.


Descriptions of posters (max. 3 pages in Springer LNCS format) must be
original and unpublished accounts of late-breaking results, innovative work
in progress, or research that is best communicated in an interactive or
graphical format. They should report at least preliminary results.
Submissions must be accompanied by a draft poster of a single slide of
about 24"x36" (ISO A1) or alternatively up to 9 ISO A4 slides. We encourage
single-slide submissions. Criteria for judging posters include content and
design. This category is ideal for submission of results obtained after
your submissions of long and short papers.
