Call: UMAP 2019 – 27th ACM International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization


27th ACM International Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization (ACM UMAP 2019)
Golden Bay Beach Hotel 5*, Larnaca, Cyprus
June 9-12, 2019

Abstracts due: January 25, 2019 (mandatory)
Papers due: February 1, 2019


ACM UMAP, “User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization”, 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. ACM UMAP is sponsored by ACM SIGCHI and SIGWEB. The proceedings are published by ACM and will be part of the ACM Digital Library.

ACM UMAP covers a wide variety of research areas where personalization and 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, e-commerce, advertising, digital humanities, social networks, personalized health, entertainment, and many more.

This year the conference hosts three new tracks, one on privacy and fairness, one on personalized music access, and one on personalized health.


For details, see the conference website (

  • Track 1 – Personalized Recommender Systems
  • Track 2 – Adaptive Hypermedia and the Semantic Web
  • Track 3 – Intelligent User Interfaces
  • Track 4 – Personalized Social Web
  • Track 5 – Technology-Enhanced Adaptive Learning
  • Track 6 – Privacy and Fairness
  • Track 7 – Personalized Music Access
  • Track 8 – Personalized Health


Papers have to be submitted through EasyChair:

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.

Papers must be formatted using the ACM SIG Standard (SIGCONF) proceedings template:

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.


  • Abstracts: January 25, 2019 (mandatory)
  • Full paper: February 1, 2019
  • Notification: March 11, 2019
