ACM UMAP 2020, the premier international conference for researchers and 
practitioners working on systems that adapt to individual users or to 
groups of users, and which collect, represent, and model user 
information, is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be given in 
conjunction with the conference. Tutorials are intensive instructional 
sessions aimed to provide a comprehensive introduction to established or 
emerging research topics of interest for the UMAP community.

*Tutorial Topics*
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
     • new user modeling technologies, methods, techniques, and trends 
(e.g. exploiting data mining and big data analytics for user modeling, 
evaluation methodologies, data visualization, etc.)
     • user modeling and personalization techniques for specific domains 
(e.g., health sciences, e-government, e-commerce, cultural heritage, 
education, internet of things, mobile, music, information retrieval, etc.)
     • application of user modeling and personalization techniques for 
information retrieval and recommender systems
     • eliciting and learning user preferences by taking into account 
users’ emotional state, physical state, personality, trust, cognitive 

*Instructions for Proposers*
An ideal tutorial should be broad enough to provide a basic introduction 
to the chosen area, but it should also cover the most important topics 
in depth. Tutorial presenters can have one page in the adjunct proceedings.
Tutorial proposals should not exceed 5 pages and should contain the 
following information:
     • Title and abstract of the tutorial for inclusion on the ACM UMAP 
2020 website (200 words maximum)
     • Tutorial description:
         • learning objectives of the tutorial and relevance to ACM UMAP 
         • targeted audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and 
prerequisite knowledge or skills
         • a brief outline of the tutorial structure
         • practical sessions
     • Tutorial length: full (6 hours) or half day (3 hours)
     • Other venues to which the tutorial or part thereof has been or 
will be presented, in addition to explaining how the current tutorial 
differs from the other editions
     • Name, email address, affiliation and brief professional biography 
of the tutorial instructor(s), indicating previous training and speaking 

*Submission and Review Process*
Tutorial proposals should be submitted in PDF format via Easychair 
submission site:

All proposals will be reviewed by the tutorial chairs. The features that 
will be evaluated are:
     • ability of the tutorial to contribute to strengthening the 
foundations of UMAP research
     • clarity of the tutorial, which should emerge from its description
     • organization, as appearing from the outline
     • background/experience of tutorial instructor(s) in teaching the 
target topics

     • Proposals due: January 20, 2020
     • Notification of acceptance: January 31, 2020
     • Camera-ready tutorial summary: May 3, 2020
