                              UM 2001

         8th International Conference on User Modeling

                      July 13 to July 17, 2001
 AlpenCongressCentrum in Sonthofen, Bavaria, Germany


The field of user  modeling  (UM)  has  resulted  in  significant
amounts  of theoretical work, as well as practical experience, in
developing UM-based applications in traditional areas  of  human-
computer  interaction  and tutoring systems. Further, it promises
to have an enormous impact on recent developments in  areas  like
information    filtering,   e-commerce,   adaptive   presentation
techniques, and interface agents.

This year's conference will include

- a  series  of  7  workshops  with  topics   ranging  from  basic
   research areas like machine learning to established applications
   like  adaptive   hypermedia  and  more  futuristic  issues  like
   personalized TV;
- 3 tutorials from acknowledged  researchers on  intelligent  user
   interfaces,  Web-based  education  systems, and  personalization
   in e-commerce;
- a panel with  representatives from industry  discussing  various
   aspects  of personalization in "real-world" applications;
- 3 invited talks with well-known researchers (and  practitioners)
   presenting  their  point  of  view  on  privacy  (Alfred  Kobsa),
   recommender  systems   (Joseph  A. Konstan),  and  eye  tracking
   (Sandra Marshall);
- two  and  a  half  days  of technical presentations with papers,
   posters,  system  demonstrations, and  a doctoral  consortium in
   which   students  can   discuss  their  ideas  with  experienced
   researchers in the field.
