CALL FOR TUTORIALS

26th Conference on User Modeling, Adaptation and Personalization - Singapore, July 8-11, 2018
http://www.um.org/umap2018

Deadline: March 11, 2018

############################################################

ACM UMAP 2018 is pleased to invite proposals for tutorials to be given in conjunction with the conference. Tutorials are intensive instructional sessions that provide a comprehensive introduction to established or emerging research topics of interest for the UMAP community.

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.

The 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.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
PROPOSAL FORMAT AND SUBMISSION
Tutorial proposals should not exceed 5 pages, and should contain the following information: 1) Title and abstract of the tutorial for inclusion on the UMAP 2018 website (200 words maximum).
2) Tutorial description:
- learning objectives of the tutorial and relevance to UMAP 2018;
- a brief outline of the tutorial structure;
- targeted audience (introductory, intermediate, advanced) and prerequisite knowledge or skills;
- practical sessions.
3) Tutorial length. The tutorial can be full (6 hours) or half day (3 hours). 4) 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. 5) Name, email address, affiliation and brief professional biography of the tutorial instructor(s), indicating previous training and speaking experience.

Proposals should be submitted in PDF format by email to both tutorial chairs at
