ACM UMAP 2023, 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 workshops to be held in conjunction with the conference. The 
workshops provide a venue to discuss and explore emerging areas of User Modeling
and Adaptive Hypermedia research with a group of like-minded researchers and 
practitioners from industry and academia.

In this edition, our goal is to have a balanced workshop program comprising different
workshop formats, combining newly emerging, currently evolving and established 
research topics. Different full-day and half-day workshop schemas are possible, such

● Working group meetings around a specific problem or topic; participants may be
asked to submit a white paper or position statement
● Mini-conferences on specialized topics, having their own paper submission and
review processes
● Mini-competitions or challenges around selected topics with individual or team 
● Interactive discussion meetings focusing on subtopics of the UMAP general research
● Joint panels for different workshops

We encourage both researchers and industry practitioners to submit workshop 
proposals. Researchers interested in submitting a workshop proposal are invited to
contact us in advance, so we can help to design successful proposals. In particular,
for workshop proposals with novel interactive formats, we are happy to assist in 
further developing and implementing the ideas.

We strongly suggest involving organizers from different institutions, bringing
different perspectives to the workshop topic. We welcome workshops with a creative
structure that may attract various types of contributions and may ensure rich 

The organizers of accepted workshops will prepare a workshop web site containing 
the call for papers and detailed information about the workshop organization and 
timeline. They will be responsible for their own publicity and reviewing processes.

There will be a conference adjunct proceedings published by ACM where all the 
workshop papers will be published. Hence, the workshop organizers will need to 
adhere to the adjunct proceedings publication timeline.


● Proposal submission: January 16, 2023
● Notification of proposal acceptance: January 30, 2023
● Send the workshop description & website URL: February 23, 2023
● Workshop Date: June 26, 2023

Deadlines refer to 23:59 in the AoE (Anywhere on Earth) time zone.


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 factors
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.
