CALL FOR TUTORIALS

26th Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization - 
Singapore, July 8-11, 2018
http://www.um.org/umap2018

Deadline: March 11, 2018

############################################################

ACM UMAP 2018 is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be given 
in conjunction with the conference.
Tutorials are intensive instructional sessions that provide a 
comprehensive introduction to established or emerging research topics of 
interest for the UMAP community.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
- new user modeling technologies, methods, techniques, and trends (e.g. 
exploiting data mining and big data analytics for user modeling, 
evaluation methodologies, data visualization, etc.)
- user modeling and personalization techniques for specific domains 
(e.g., health sciences, e-government, e-commerce, cultural heritage, 
education, internet of things, mobile, music, information retrieval, etc.)
- application of user modeling and personalization techniques for 
information retrieval and recommender systems;
- eliciting and learning user preferences by taking into account users’ 
emotional state, physical state, personality, trust, cognitive factors.

The ideal tutorial should be broad enough to provide a basic 
introduction to the chosen area, but it should also cover the most 
important topics in depth.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROPOSAL FORMAT AND SUBMISSION
Tutorial proposals should not exceed 5 pages, and should contain the 
following information:
1) Title and abstract of the tutorial for inclusion on the UMAP 2018 
website (200 words maximum).
2) Tutorial description:
- learning objectives of the tutorial and relevance to UMAP 2018;
- a brief outline of the tutorial structure;
- targeted audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and 
prerequisite knowledge or skills;
- practical sessions.
3) Tutorial length. The tutorial can be full (6 hours) or half day (3 
hours).
4) Other venues to which the tutorial or part thereof has been or will 
be presented, in addition to explaining how the current tutorial differs 
from the other editions.
5) Name, email address, affiliation and brief professional biography of 
the tutorial instructor(s), indicating previous training and speaking 
experience.

Proposals should be submitted in PDF format by email to both tutorial 
chairs at

RESPONSIBILITIES
Organizers of accepted tutorials are responsible for preparing the 
materials for attendees (slide sets, additional teaching material, 
software installation and usage guides for practical hands-on sessions, 
etc.). Tutorial slides will be made available online at the UMAP 2018 
website.
The UMAP 2018 Organizing Committee is responsible for providing 
publicity for the tutorials as part of the conference publicity 
activities, and on-site logistical support to the organizers and attendees.

EVALUATION CRITERIA
All proposals will be reviewed by the tutorial chairs. The features that 
will be evaluated are:
- ability of the tutorial to contribute to strengthening the foundations 
of UMAP research;
- clarity of the tutorial, which should emerge from its description;
- good organization, as appearing from the outline;
- background/experience of tutorial instructor(s) in teaching the target 
topics.
