10th International Conference on User Modeling, UM'05

Edinburgh, Scotland, UK, 24-29 July, 2005
http://gate.ac.uk/conferences/um2005/

FINAL CALL FOR PAPERS AND WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

The International User Modeling Conferences represent the central forum
for
the discussion and presentation of research and industry results in the
development of personalized systems, as well as basic research about
personalization. 
In the last 25 years, the field of User Modeling has produced
significant
new theories and methods to analyze and model computer users in short
and
long-term interactions. Moreover, methods for personalizing
human-computer
interaction based on user models have been successfully developed,
applied
and evaluated in a number of domains, such as information filtering,
e-commerce, adaptive natural language and adaptive educational systems.
New
User Modeling topics are emerging, including adaptation to user
attitudes
and affective states, personalized interaction in mobile, ubiquitous and
context-aware computing and in user interactions with embodied
autonomous
agents. User Modeling research is being influenced by different fields,
such
as Artificial Intelligence, Human-Computer Interaction, Cognitive
Psychology, Linguistics, Education, as well as, by newly emerging links
with
Customer Relationship Management and technologies for the communication
on
the Web, such as Web Services and the Semantic Web.

UM'05 invites submissions in following categories:
 * Papers and posters
 * Workshops
 * Tutorials
 * Doctoral Consortium

Relevant topics for the conference include, but are not limited, to:

 * acquisition, updating and management of
 * user models and student models
 * security and privacy aspects in the
 * management of user data
 * evaluation of user modeling techniques
 * user model representation standards
 * user model information sharing in ubiquitous
 * services and smart environments
 * user modeling servers
 * user modeling in the Semantic Web
 * user modeling and adaptive systems
 * applications of user modeling systems and techniques
 * data mining for personalization and cross-recommendation
 * affective computing
 * adaptation to the handicapped and elderly
 * adaptive hypermedia and Web systems
 * intelligent information retrieval, information
 * filtering and content personalization
 * collaborative filtering and recommender systems
 * adaptive user interfaces
 * dialog planning and response tailoring
 * plan recognition and generation
 * presentation planning
 * recognition and correction of misconceptions
 * intelligent tutoring systems
 * human-computer cooperation, user support
 * adaptive learning environments
 * personalized Web sites and services
 * personalized interaction in Virtual
 * reality and 3D Interfaces
 * personalized interaction in mobile,
 * ubiquitous and context-aware computing
 * embodied animated agents
 * support of collaboration and group modeling
 * engineering adaptive systems

All submissions will be reviewed on the basis of relevance, originality,
significance, soundness and clarity. Three referees will review each
submission.

SECOND CALL FOR WORKSHOP PROPOSALS

Workshop proposals should provide sufficient information to judge the
importance, quality, and benefits for the research community. Each
workshop
should have one or more chairs and a program committee. Proposals should
be
2-4 pages long and should provide the following information:

* Title of the proposed workshop.
* Names and full addresses, including contact details, of the  workshop
chair(s).
* A brief description of the workshop topic and goals, its  relevance to
UM05 and significance for the research field.
* A description of the target audience, areas from which the
participants
are expected to come, strategy for publicizing the  workshop, number of
expected participants, names of potential  attendees (if known).
* Arrangements for the organization of the workshop, including  length
(half
day or one day) and a brief outline of the workshop  describing
anticipated
format and possible session names.
* Names, addresses, and home page links of people who have agreed  to be
part of the workshop program committee if the workshop  proposal is
accepted.  This list should preferably include people  from at least
three
different sites.
* A brief description of the organizers experience and background  in
the
topic, and links to web pages of the workshop chairs.

SUBMISSION DETAILS

Workshops should be submitted via e-mail (either plain text or pdf
format)
to both UM05 workshop chairs:

Vania Dimitrova ([log in to unmask]) and Kathleen McCoy
([log in to unmask]

with a subject line of: UM05 Workshop Proposal

Workshop organizers are encouraged to submit a preliminary workshop
proposal
containing a brief outline of the workshop which will be used to
identify
possible overlap of workshop topics and, in this case, cooperation and
joint
workshop organization may be suggested.
