Call for Papers
Sender: [log in to unmask]
The User Modeling conference series is the major forum for
presentation and discussion of latest developments in academic
research on user modeling and adaptive systems as well as industrial
experience in deploying adaptive and personalized systems in
"real-world" applications. The International User Modeling Conferences
bring together researchers and practitioners from a variety of fields
including artificial intelligence, linguistics, psychology, and
human-computer interaction. This conference series is characterized by
a high quality technical program and by lively discussions in a
pleasant environment. For more information about the conference,
please visit the conference web site at http://www2.sis.pitt.edu/~um2003/
Continuing a tradition that started in 1994, the UM-03 Doctoral
Consortium aims to provide qualified Ph.D. students with the
opportunity to present their on-going research to the UM community.
The Doctoral Consortium is a great forum to receive useful feedback
from a knowledgeable audience, to exchange ideas, compare approaches
and meet fellow researchers in the field. Submissions should describe
Ph.D. research that is at a stage where feedback from the broader UM
community might be of value. Thus, we expect students to be close to
make their research proposal, or to have made it but have at least a
year of work remaining before completion of their thesis. Submissions
must be a maximum of three pages (including references) and should
i. the problem(s) that the proposed research is addressing,
ii. the main contribution(s) of the research to the UM field,
iii. the proposed solution(s), including a brief description of work
already done and a tentative plan for future work.
Submission deadline: Jan. 25, 2003
