Call for Demos and Late Breaking Results (LBR) - ACM UMAP 2020

28th ACM International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and

Theme: "Responsible Personalization"

Genoa (Italy)

July 14-17, 2020




   Submission of demos and LBR papers:  April 6, 2020

   Notification of acceptance: April 27, 2020

   Camera-ready versions of accepted papers: May 7, 2020




ACM UMAP – User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization 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.

ACM UMAP 2020 invites Demonstrations and Late-Breaking Results (LBR) papers
of innovative UMAP-based systems (including research prototypes).

Demonstrations will showcase research prototypes and commercially available
products in a dedicated session. Demo submissions must be based on an
implemented and tested system that pursues one or more innovative ideas in
the interest areas of the conference.

Demonstrations are an excellent and exciting way to showcase
implementations and to get valuable feedback from the community. Each demo
submission must make clear which aspects of the system will be
demonstrated, and how. To better identify the value of demos, we also
encourage authors to submit a pointer to a screencast (max. 5 minutes on
Vimeo or YouTube) or to any external material related to the demo (e.g.,
shared code on GitHub).

Descriptions of demonstrations should have a length of max. 2 pages in the
ACM SIG proceedings template. On an extra page (not to be published),
submissions should include a specification of the technical requirements
for demonstrating the system at UMAP 2020.
Late-Breaking Results

Late-Breaking Results (LBR) are research-in-progress that must contain
original and unpublished accounts of innovative research ideas, preliminary
results, industry showcases, and system prototypes, addressing both the
theory and practice of User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization. In
addition, papers introducing recently started research projects or
summarizing project results are welcome as well.

We encourage researchers and practitioners to submit a late-breaking work
as it provides a unique opportunity for sharing valuable ideas, eliciting
useful feedback on early-stage work, and fostering discussions and
collaborations among colleagues. Late-Breaking Results papers have a length
of 4 to 6 pages in the ACM SIG proceedings template and will be presented
to the conference as posters.



Papers will be reviewed single-blind and do not need to be anonymized
before submission.

Submissions (demos and late-breaking results) must adhere to the ACM SIG
Standard (SIGCONF) proceedings template.

A template can be found at: .

Submit your papers in PDF format via EasyChair for ACM UMAP 2020 Demos and
Late-Breaking Results at:


The review process will be single blinded, i.e. authors’ names should be
included in the papers.

Submissions will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. They
will be assessed based on their originality and novelty, potential
contribution to the research field, potential impact in particular use
cases, and the usefulness of presented experiences, as well as their
overall readability.

Papers that exceed the page limits (2 pages for demos and 6 pages for LBR)
or do not adhere to the formatting guidelines will be returned without


Accepted Demo and Late Breaking Results papers will be published in the ACM
UMAP 2020 Adjunct Proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. All categories
will be presented at the poster reception of the conference, in the form of
a poster and/or a software demonstration following poster format. This form
of presentation will provide presenters with an opportunity to obtain
direct feedback about their work from a wide audience during the conference.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference
and present the paper there.

*UMAP Statement on Coronavirus*


UMAP 2020 will proceed as planned July 14-17, but we will continue to
monitor the evolving situation related to the coronavirus disease outbreak
and potential impact on global travel.

We are following the guidelines provided by the World Health Organisation
(WHO), local public health authorities,  individual governments and the
Italian Government. Decisions will be based on that.

We wish to reassure that should a physical conference be unsafe or should
people have travel limitations from Governments, the remote
presentations/recordings will be possible.

Proceedings of the Main Conference and Adjunct Proceedings will be
available as planned in the ACM Digital Library.

Any changes to operating status will be communicated immediately on the
website and social media as well as to all authors of accepted papers and
to registered meeting attendees. Stay tuned.
