Call for Papers

The conference spans a wide range of topics related to user modeling and personalization.

The conference will be composed of several types of contributions  with different requirements and restrictions regarding the length, time allocation and content.

All the paper contributions will be peer-reviewed. Final copies of the accepted contributions should be sent in due time in order for them to be included in the Conference proceedings book. The proceedings will be widely available in both electronic and printed form in the Springer series Lecture Notes in Computer Science.

  • All submissions must adhere to the Springer LNCS format.
  • Submissions must be made through the EasyChair conference system prior the specified deadline (all deadlines refer to Pacific Standard Time – 11:59pm)
  • At least one of the authors should register and take part at the conference to make the presentation.



Long research papers (12 11 pages maximum)

Long research papers should present original reports of substantive new research. They should place the work within the field, and clearly indicate its innovative aspects and its significance. Number of pages: 11 pages maximum of content plus unlimited extra pages for references.

Short research papers (6 pages)

Short research papers should present original and unpublished highly promising research, whose merit will be assessed in terms of originality and importance rather than maturity and technical validation. Number of pages: 6 pages maximum of content plus unlimited extra pages for references.

Note: Both categories will be strictly kept apart in the review process. Only in extremely unusual circumstances can long papers be relegated to the short paper category.


We solicit submissions covering innovative commercial implementations or applications of UMAP technologies, and experience in applying recent research advances to practical situations. Submissions may be either long papers (12 11 pages maximum) whose technical density should be comparable to that of research track submissions, or short papers (6 pages). Both limits exclude unlimited extra pages for references. Industry Track submissions must describe work performed in industry or concern industrial applications, and will typically include at least one industry author.
