Adaptation and personalisation are crucial aspects of the design and development of successful artificial intelligence systems, from search engines and recommender systems to wearable devices. The increased desire for customisation inevitably leads to the need for the end-user to understand the rationale behind displaying that specific tailored content.

Explainable AI (XAI) is a key research area that currently deals with these topics and aims to create intelligent systems that are more and more transparent, human-understandable and trustworthy, taking care of specific regulations, like the GDPR, which explicitly require users to be able to understand why and how a particular result was obtained.

In such a scenario, the design and development of user interfaces play a fundamental role in providing the proper explanations to the end-users, even more than implementing the system itself in many cases, and much research about innovative human-centred explainable AI systems has been recently done.

However, a common issue we may face in this context is to find intelligent user interfaces following the one-fits-all paradigm, meaning that for a single application or system, all the users receive the same explanations without considering their different knowledge, background or expertise.


The First Workshop on Adaptive and Personalised Explainable User Interfaces (APEx-UI 2022) aims to foster a cross-disciplinary and interdisciplinary discussion between experts from different fields (e.g. computer science, psychology, sociology, law, medicine, business, etc.) in order to answer a precise research question:

"How can we adapt and personalise explainable user interfaces to the needs, demands and requirements of different end-users, considering their distinct knowledge, background and expertise?"





Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

- Adaptive and personalized explainable interfaces

- Adaptive explainable interfaces

- Personalized explainable interfaces

- Transparent and explainable user interfaces

- Privacy-preserving explainable user interfaces

- Innovative methods for designing explainable interfaces

- Interaction user interfaces

- Ethical issues (Fairness and Biases) in explainable interfaces

- User-adaptive XAI systems

- Transparent and explainable user profiles

- Evaluation criteria for explainable interfaces

- Novel metrics for explainable interfaces evaluation

- Empirical studies and evaluation of explainable interfaces





We encourage the submission of original contributions on user interfaces providing explanations in a personalised and/or adaptive way. We intend personalisation as different content displayed according to different user profiles, and adaptivity as a change in the way content is presented as the user profile or context changes.


The specific goal is to open and continue the interdisciplinary discussion among researchers about the need to develop user interfaces that reflect the demands of different types of users of the same system, going beyond the classic one-fits-all paradigm where interfaces are designed for one specific set of users at a time.


We solicit the submission of two forms of contributions:

1. Regular papers: following the guidelines of this year's call for papers of the main conference, there is no page limit and no formal distinction between short and long papers; we expect the paper length to be commensurate with the contribution.

2. Position papers: max. 5 pages (excluding references).


Papers should be formatted in the new ACM single-column format.


Submission site:


Submitted papers must not be under review in any other conference, workshop or journal at the time of submission.

All submitted papers will be evaluated by at least two members of the program committee through a single-blind peer-review process, based on their originality, technical quality, clarity and relevance to the workshop.

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to present their work during the workshop, and at least one author of each accepted paper must register for and attend the workshop.





* Paper submission deadline: January 3rd, 2022

* Authors notification: January 28th, 2022

* Camera-Ready submission deadline: February 9th, 2022

* Workshop: March 22nd, 2022 (hybrid mode)





Accepted papers will be published as open access joint workshop proceedings via
