Overview

You are invited to support the UMAP 2020 conference. ACM UMAP is the premier international conference for researchers and practitioners working on personalization and systems that adapt to individual users, to groups of users, and that collect, represent, and model user information.

UMAP 2020 covers a wide variety of research areas where personalization and adaptation may be applied. This includeS (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; eCommerce; advertising; digital humanities; social networks; personalized health; entertainment, and many more.

UMAP 2020 provides doctoral students with the opportunity to explore and develop their research interests under the guidance of a panel of distinguished scholars, and possibilities for researchers to present and discuss their research, and to network with other researchers. A vibrant workshop and tutorial program plus poster, demo and late-breaking results session complete the program of the conference. 

Why to support UMAP 2020?

The topic of personalization, user profiling, adaptive and intelligent user interfaces is very relevant to many businesses, and if this is the case for your business, then we believe you will find it highly beneficial to become a financial sponsor of UMAP 2020. 

Your investment in the conference allows you to capitalize on UMAP’s respected reputation and industry connections to increase your brand awareness, strengthen your exposure in the marketplace, and reinforce your position as an industry leader in personalization and user-adaptive systems. There are three other benefits: first, your kind sponsorship will help keep the costs of the conference reasonable for students, and improve the quality of the conference experience for all attendees world-wide. Second, sponsors will get an opportunity to showcase their state-of- the-art personalization and recommender technologies, which helps publicize your organization’s work and recruitment efforts in the area of personalization and recommender systems. Third, sponsors will be able to get involved and influence the conference events and the community as a whole.

Sponsorship levels and options

We have four levels of sponsorship available, and in addition a number of “à la carte” items available to sponsors allowing you to achieve greater visibility with named awards, handouts, and more.
