               UMAP 2017 CALL FOR PAPERS
The 25th Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and
                   Personalization

       to be held on July 9-12, 2017, Bratislava, Slovakia
           co-located with SMAP 2017

              http://www.um.org/umap2017/ <http://www.um.org/umap2017/>
--------------------------------------------------------------

Important Dates:
==================
* 10 February 2017: Abstracts for Full and Short Papers (compulsory)
* 17 February 2017: Full and Short Papers
* 7 March 2017: Doctoral consortium papers

Conference Scope:
==================
UMAP is the premier international conference for researchers and
practitioners working on systems that adapt to individual users, to
groups of users, and that collect, represent, and model user information.  
UMAP is the successor to the biennial User Modeling (UM) and Adaptive
Hypermedia and Adaptive Web-based Systems (AH) conferences that
started in 1986.

UMAP 2017 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 engendering significant innovations based on
advances in user modeling and adaptation: recommender systems; adaptive
educational systems; intelligent user interfaces; eCommerce; advertising;
digital humanities; social networks; personalized health; entertainment,
and many more.

Key Areas / Tracks:
==================
UMAP 2017 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.

* PERSONALIZED RECOMMENDER SYSTEMS 
(chair: Bamshad Mobasher, DePaul University)
* ADAPTIVE HYPERMEDIA AND THE SEMANTIC WEB
(chair: Peter Brusilovsky, University of Pittsburgh)
* INTELLIGENT USER INTERFACES
(chair: Nava Tintarev, Delft University of Technology)
* TECHNOLOGY-ENHANCED ADAPTIVE LEARNING
(chair: Milos Kravcik, RWTH Aachen University)
* PERSONALIZED SOCIAL WEB
(Luca Maria Aiello, Bell Labs Cambridge)

Submissions:
==================
UMAP 2017 will include high quality peer-reviewed papers related
to the above key areas. 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.

* Long (8 pages + references) and Short (4 pages +  references) papers in ACM style
Peer reviewed, original, and principled research papers addressing
both the theory and practice of UMAP and papers showcasing innovative
use of UMAP and exploring the benefits and challenges of applying UMAP
technology in real-life applications and contexts are welcome.

* Long papers should present original reports of substantive new
research techniques, findings, and applications of UMAP. They should
place the work within the field and clearly indicate innovative aspects.
Research procedures and technical methods should be presented in
sufficient detail to ensure scrutiny and reproducibility. Results should
be clearly communicated and implications of the contributions/findings
for UMAP and beyond should be explicitly discussed.

Short papers should present original and highly promising research
or applications. Merit will be assessed in terms of originality and importance
rather than maturity, extensive technical validation, and user studies.

Separation of long and short papers will be strictly enforced so papers
will not compete across categories, but within each category.
Papers that receive high scores and are considered promising by reviewers,
but didn't make the acceptance cut, will be directed to the poster session
of the conference and will be invited to be resubmitted as posters.

Publication:
==================
All accepted papers will be published by ACM and will be available
via the ACM Digital Library. At least one author of each accepted paper
Must register for the conference and present the paper there.

Important Dates:
==================
* 10 February 2017: Abstracts for Full and Short Papers (compulsory)
* 17 February 2017: Full and Short Papers
* 7 March 2017: Doctoral consortium papers

* 24 March 2017: Notification for full, short, posters & DC papers
* 21 April 2017: Camera-ready for Full, Short, Posters & DC papers
(main proceedings)

* 20 April 2017: Workshop papers & Demos, Late-Breaking Results papers
* 26 May 2017: Early bird registration

* 9-12 July 2017: UMAP 2017 Conference

The submissions times are 11:59pm Hawaii time.
