1st Call For Papers:

2nd Workshop on Theory-Informed User Modeling for Tailoring And
Personalizing Interfaces (HUMANIZE)


March 11, 2018, Tokyo (Japan)


In conjunction with IUI 2018





The HUMANIZE workshop aims to explore the interface between data-driven and
theory-driven approaches for constructing intelligent/personalized user
interfaces. Data-driven approaches for personalized user interfaces can rely
on building models from observed and measured user interaction behavior that
can predict future behavior from historic behavior. Theory-driven approaches
rely on understanding of how certain psychological traits (e.g. personality,
cognitive styles, interests) affect the experience/needs of the intended


The combination of these two approaches, model-driven and data-driven,
provides an interesting research direction. Understanding what traits of a
user influence how an interface can be best personalized to match their
needs and experience can be captured in a formal user model. Through data
mining of interaction data these formal models can be fit to the data and as
a result interfaces can be personalized in an informed, grounded way.


Advances in combining formal user models with data mining can be and have
been made in grossly two ways that complement each other. On the one hand
this can be done by identifying formal user models that can be used to base
personalization on (such as cognitive style). On the other hand this can be
done by finding ways to infer these user models from data. These two ways
complement each other can be combined in a theory-informed personalization.


The HUMANIZE workshop combines practical data mining methods and theoretical
knowledge for personalization, providing a venue where researchers from
different fields come together to share their thoughts and experiences. In
addition, the workshop will allow for an exploration of future opportunities
in hopes of identifying possible links between the algorithmic side of
behavioral analysis and the theoretical understanding of users for





An non-exhaustive list of topics for this workshop is:

*	Identification of psychological traits that can be used as a formal
user model for personalization (e.g., personality, level of domain
knowledge, need for cognition, cognitive styles)
*	Data mining methods to infer user profiles in terms of identified
formal user models (e.g., how to infer someone’s personality from their
social media)
*	How (user) interfaces can be tailored to better match certain user
psychological traits (e.g., altering the number of search results for users
with a higher need for cognition, ordering of interface elements, using
visual versus textual representations)
*	Of particular relevance are user studies that combine one or more of
the above points





For this workshop we encourage three kinds of submissions:


*	Full papers (anonymized 8-10 pages)
*	Short papers (anonymized up to 4-6 pages)
*	White papers/Position Statements (anonymized up to 2-4 pages)

* page count is excluding references


Submissions should follow the standard SigConf format. Use either the
Microsoft Word template or the LaTeX template:





*	17th December - Submission Deadline
*	23rd January - Acceptance Notification
*	6th February - Camera-ready of Accepted Papers
*	11th March – Workshop





All submissions will undergo a peer-review process to ensure a high standard
of quality. Referees will consider originality, significance, technical
soundness, clarity of exposition, and relevance to the workshop’s topics.
The reviewing process will be double-blind so submissions should be properly


Research papers should be submitted electronically as a single PDF through
the EasyChair conference submission system:


Accepted submissions will be included in the joint ACM IUI workshop
proceedings published as a CEUR-WS volume. In order for accepted papers to
be included, at least one author should be registered
( and attend the
