*** 1st User Model Generation Shared Challenge @ EvalUMAP, UMAP 2020 ***
*Register at:*


We are pleased to announce the first shared challenge in the UMAP space.
This task challenges participants to generate user models for personalized
mobile phone notification generation.

Challenge participants will be provided with a dataset consisting of
several individuals’ mobile phone interactions, along with appropriate
models, content, metadata, user behaviors, etc., which can be used to
comprehensively compare how different approaches and systems perform. In
addition, a number of metrics and observations for participants to perform
in order to facilitate comparison are outlined.

This shared task provides an opportunity for participants to test and tune
their systems and complete the shared task in order for comparative results
and associated publications to be prepared for and presented at the
EvalUMAP Evaluation Track at UMAP 2020.
