           co-located with SMAP 2017

==================
**** NEWS: NRHM special issue for invited UMAP papers ****
 ================== 
We are pleased to inform that the New Review of Hypermedia and Multimedia
journal will feature a special issue on User Modeling, Adaptation and
Personalization. 
During or after the conference, authors of selected UMAP papers will be
invited to submit extended versions of their papers  to this special issue.

Important Dates:
==================
* 10 February 2017: Abstracts for Full and Short Papers (compulsory)
* 17 February 2017: Full and Short Papers
* 7 March 2017: Doctoral consortium papers

Conference Scope:
==================
UMAP 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.  
UMAP is the successor to the biennial User Modeling (UM) and Adaptive
Hypermedia and Adaptive Web-based Systems (AH) conferences that started in
1986.

UMAP 2017 covers a wide variety of research areas where adaptation may be
applied. This include (but is in no way limited to) a number of domains in
which researchers are engendering significant innovations based on advances
in user modeling and adaptation: recommender systems; adaptive educational
systems; intelligent user interfaces; eCommerce; advertising; digital
humanities; social networks; personalized health; entertainment, and many
more.

Key Areas / Tracks:
==================
UMAP 2017 will explore, study and shape a broad range of dimensions faced by
modern user adaptive systems, covering the following Key Areas chaired by
leading researchers.

* PERSONALIZED RECOMMENDER SYSTEMS
(chair: Bamshad Mobasher, DePaul University)
* ADAPTIVE HYPERMEDIA AND THE SEMANTIC WEB
(chair: Peter Brusilovsky, University of Pittsburgh)
* INTELLIGENT USER INTERFACES
(chair: Nava Tintarev, Delft University of Technology)
* TECHNOLOGY-ENHANCED ADAPTIVE LEARNING
(chair: Milos Kravcik, RWTH Aachen University)
* PERSONALIZED SOCIAL WEB
(Luca Maria Aiello, Bell Labs Cambridge)

Submissions:
==================
UMAP 2017 will include high quality peer-reviewed papers related to the
above key areas. Maintaining the high quality and impact of the UMAP series,
each paper will have three reviews by program committee members and a
meta-review presenting the reviewers' 
consensual view; the review process will be coordinated by the program
chairs in collaboration with the corresponding area chairs.

* Long (8 pages + references) and Short (4 pages +  references) papers in
ACM style Peer reviewed, original, and principled research papers addressing
both the theory and practice of UMAP and papers showcasing innovative use of
UMAP and exploring the benefits and challenges of applying UMAP technology
in real-life applications and contexts are welcome.

* Long papers should present original reports of substantive new research
techniques, findings, and applications of UMAP. They should place the work
within the field and clearly indicate innovative aspects. 
Research procedures and technical methods should be presented in sufficient
detail to ensure scrutiny and reproducibility. Results should be clearly
communicated and implications of the contributions/findings for UMAP and
beyond should be explicitly discussed.

Short papers should present original and highly promising research or
applications. Merit will be assessed in terms of originality and importance
rather than maturity, extensive technical validation, and user studies.

Separation of long and short papers will be strictly enforced so papers will
not compete across categories, but within each category.
Papers that receive high scores and are considered promising by reviewers,
but didn't make the acceptance cut, will be directed to the poster session
of the conference and will be invited to be resubmitted as posters.

Publication:
==================
All accepted papers will be published by ACM and will be available via the
ACM Digital Library. At least one author of each accepted paper Must
register for the conference and present the paper there.

Important Dates:
==================
* 10 February 2017: Abstracts for Full and Short Papers (compulsory)
* 17 February 2017: Full and Short Papers
* 7 March 2017: Doctoral consortium papers

* 24 March 2017: Notification for full, short, posters & DC papers
* 21 April 2017: Camera-ready for Full, Short, Posters & DC papers (main
proceedings)

* 20 April 2017: Workshop papers & Demos, Late-Breaking Results papers
* 26 May 2017: Early bird registration

* 9-12 July 2017: UMAP 2017 Conference

The submissions times are 11:59pm Hawaii time.
